Mindfulness is something that we all can benefit from. However, for some people, mindfulness meditation can feel impossible or inaccessible. In my work as a music therapist and counselor, I have found music to be a valuable means for developing a greater sense of mindfulness. I share more of my thoughts in this latest blog post.
Body awareness involves having an awareness of the connection between body and mind. Unfortunately, anxiety or pain can cause people to disconnect from both their body and mind. After all, it can feel scary or painful to be truly aware of our bodies or our thoughts.
However, body awareness is important as it helps us to understand who we are and how we move through space. Mindfulness and music are two ways that body awareness can be cultivated in a way that feels safe and accessible. In this post, I share a bit about how the two work together to do this.
