BUT, BEFORE YOU GO…
To help you prioritize your self-care and peace of mind, I created a new 5-DAY AUDIO MINDFULNESS MEDITATION SERIES that is specifically tailored for parents of addicted adult children for only $27.
You can purchase here with your PayPal account or with your credit/debit card. You'll then be guided with a new Mindfulness Meditation for 5 days that will foster inner peace and compassion. Each practice is under 20 minutes long.
YOU'LL LEARN HOW TO
Decrease emotional reactivity so that you can respond with understanding instead of reacting from fear and guilt.
Activate the relaxation response which helps to repair and prevent the damaging effects of stress.
Increase awareness of the present moment so that you can tame rumination and decrease suffering.
Work with painful emotions in which we tend to get stuck.
Experience greater self-compassion, so that you can accept yourself and your loved ones exactly as they are.
We'll begin with Mindfulness of the Breath. The breath is an anchor to the present moment and allows us to see how easily and often we stray from reality, get "hooked," and are swept away by our concepts and thoughts.
We'll practice Mindfulness of Compassion, which becomes as easy as breathing. This can be used on the spot and helps us to respond to our loved ones with compassion, instead of reacting in ways that tend to cause disconnection.
We'll practice Mindfulness of Emotions in the Body, learn to allow them, and see their inherently impermanent nature. This helps us to transform painful emotions in which we tend to get stuck, instead of reacting to them.
We'll practice Mindfulness of the Mind. In particular, we'll start to observe the self-talk that ties our energy up in notions that lead to suffering and unskillful behavior. This will give us the opportunity to choose a different response.
We'll practice Mindful Loving-Kindness, for ourselves and others. Deep feelings of love for our children can be "lost in expression" if there is also pain. Loving-Kindness grows our ability to express our unconditional love and acceptance.
Hi, I'm Victoria
You're not just talking to another licensed professional. And you're not just relating to a Mom with personal experience.
You're working with someone who happens to be both. And my specialty is helping parents who have adult children with addiction problems find peace of mind and freedom from suffering, while also being the helpful and compassionate parents they want to be. I'm a licensed counselor and Parent Coach who uses Mindfulness and other evidence-based practices to address all the challenges that parents face.
