Breathwork and Meditation for Therapists: Integrate Stress-Reduction Techniques into Your Practice
Psychotherapists looking to complement their practices can benefit greatly from mind-body practices rooted in yoga, qigong and Buddhist meditation. Coherent Breathing and Open Focus Meditation are two highly effective self-regulation techniques that help to relieve anxiety, improve focus and increase one's feeling of well-being. Coherent Breathing, which involves rhythmic breathing that with practice can be done during daily activities, enhances and optimizes brain, heart and lung function and stimulates the nervous system's relaxation response. Open Focus meditation complements the practice of Coherent Breathing. Through the experience of repeated rounds of breathwork and meditation, gentle movement, theoretical background and small group interaction, participating therapists will discover the benefits of these mind-body practices and learn to integrate this knowledge into their clinical practices and into their own lives.
