Guided Meditation & Trauma

by | Abuse Literacy, Self-Care

Guided meditation is a powerful and effective tool that aids victims of abuse and betrayal.

What Is Guided Meditation?

Unlike traditional therapy, guided meditation allows women to relax, heal, and process without having to have a conversation. For some victims, this is an ideal foundational practice for healing from trauma.

As trained specialists lead a guided meditation session, victims are led through a process of mindfulness and relaxation as they follow verbal cues to elicit thoughts, processes, and images that may help victims on their healing journey.

Guided Meditation is a Gentle Process

Another benefit of guided meditation for victims is that there is no wrong way to do it. Women can find comfort in the slow process of practicing meditation without beating themselves up for not progressing faster toward healing.

5 Steps To A Successful Guided Meditation Session

  1. Go to a comfortable location.
  2. Preferably, close your eyes.
  3. If you feel like you don’t like closing your eyes for whatever reason you can just look down.
  4. Try sitting up in a chair in a way that makes you very comfortable.
  5. Clear your mind as the session begins.

    Thanks so much for explaining more about the guided meditation services and for the short mediation demonstration. I have attended one of the group sessions with Peggy, so far, and plan to attend more. I found it to be helpful to me and I still feel a sense of personal healing around the object of that particular mediation session.
