As a coach that utilizes mindfulness for sustaining and deepening behavioral and cognitive changes, I am often asked how to utilize deep relaxation or guided imagery techniques in Coaching or Therapy settings. There are few critical things need to be considered to utilize this technique in the sessions. I often observe that the individuals with little or no mindfulness education, by attending to a practical experience attempts to implement these into the sessions, including yoga teachers. What needs to be understood is that taking someone deep into their psyche requires significant amount of ethics, integrity, reverence, gentleness, care and understanding. As in that state of being, it is likely that individual’s guards are down and whatever you are saying is taken in. Therefore, whatever you are saying needs to be chosen with care and understanding.
I am offering this workshop to teach the intro of utilization of Guided Imagery as a technique to introduce such concepts.
Hope to see you there!
