Meditation & Mindfulness


At A Wise Retreat we practice and teach the art of Meditation and Mindfulness. These techniques can help improve mental concentration and clarity, reduce anxiety and depression and promote a deep sense of inner peace. Through meditation, those suffering from addiction can connect with their spirituality and rediscover new passions. Meditation also offers a healthy way to relieve anger and stress, often experienced by people in recovery. Clients struggling with insomnia may find that meditation relaxes the body and clears the mind of worries and anxious thoughts.

For clients with chronic pain, meditation can help with pain management, teaching them to divert attention and regain control over their body’s responses. Mindfulness meditation is the practice of focusing attention on one’s breathing and internal bodily sensations. Researchers have found that the “present-moment focus” that mindfulness meditation enables can improve well-being by allowing awareness of emotions, thoughts and sensations that arise in the mind without judgment or re-activity.
