Melanie Mamakos

For group meditation sessions, I start with a “cognitive” portion – where I gain information on what each individual’s goals or objectives are for the session. The actual meditation session begins with a progressive relaxation technique, followed by guided imagery based on the stated goals/objectives and several “deepening techniques” and/or “anchors”  to keep the participants “mindful” and in the present. The methods used are very simple to remember and it is very easy for the guests to implement the techniques on their own -  whenever they need to relax, center, and focus.

“With mindfulness and meditation it’s possible to observe who we are and decide who we want to be. With focus and practice we can change our lives in amazing ways. And meditation doesn't have to be practiced solo. Sometimes it's easier and more fun to practice within a group. Share the journey. Join us Monday for a guided group meditation and let’s try to release some stress and enhance our well-being together!’
