I wrote a post a while ago about using vibro acoustic technology in mindfulness after I was offered a taster session. The taster session was exploring how using this sensory experience could help develop a mindful practice, or even help improve mental health.
I’ve had a lot of emails recently from people asking how they become mindfulness teachers or tutors so I thought it might be useful to give you a bit of an overview.
Many mindfulness practitioners will tell you the most challenging time to keep their mindfulness practice going is when the going gets tough.
When we are going through a difficult time it can be really hard to remember to breathe, to find the time to meditate and to remember all the teaching about letting go of thoughts non judgementally.
Kindness. It’s something we often hear in relation to other people isn’t it? Be kind to others. Have compassion for those in greater need than yourself. Offer kindness to those around you.
But when we start thinking about the kindness and compassion we offer ourselves, we often discover we’re pretty low down on our own list of priorities
Why do we put ourselves last?
Note: This post should have been posted the week I started eating mindfully – or trying to, but things have got in the way of me posting. So I’ve moved on a bit since then but new updates will be coming soon.
Well after a year of fretting over turning 40, my 41st year is going to be much more positive.
You may be totally phased now by the title of this post…what even is vibro acoustic technology?
The answer, in a nutshell, is that it’s sound, vibrations and images (the images affected by the vibrations and the sound and your voice and movements if you choose to interact that way), all pulled together into a space that you spend time in. The result is that this technology can help you relax, be mindful, feel calmer and has been used as a mindfulness therapy for people with mental health issues.
