What we're about

Emotion-focused mindfulness is a practice that combines meditative practices and psychological sciences. It aims to enhance current trends of meditation by looking closer to the emotional experience of our shared humanity. In going deeper than say perhaps relaxation exercises, we may find adaptive ways to respond to life challenges.

This Emotion-Focused Mindfulness Group (EFMG) creates a supportive drop-in group for those interested in deepening their practice and safely exploring their experience (namely emotions) that often are maladaptive and hold us back from thriving in life.

Note: The basis of this practice uses Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), which is not the same as Emotion-Freedom Technique. EFT is an established a method of psychotherapy that has been established by Leslie Greenberg and others. This group will include EFT concepts, but has nothing to do with emotion-freedom techniques.

In each one hour session of this group, members of the group learn more about Emotion-Focused Mindfulness Therapy, meditate for 20-40 minutes, journal and reflect on their experience. The group will run in English; I offer some French translation if needed.

These introductory sessions encourage members to emphasize safe and adaptive exploration of emotions with short and accessible meditation and reflection techniques. We do this in a group to ensure a space of sharing and mutual encouragement in developing skills and competencies together.

Beginners and experienced meditators welcome! A suggested cost of 10 CHF is recommended per session.
