Introduction to Focusing Meditation

Focusing Meditation Overview

Focusing meditation can give your mind a break from all the worry and anxiety that comes with grief. By choosing just one thing to focus upon, you give yourself a respite, and activate the relaxation response. The most important thing about the focusing practices is to realize that it is not important how LONG you stay focused, it is how OFTEN you catch yourself wandering off, and CHOOSE to bring yourself back. It is in the returning to the object of focus that the “magic” happens.
