Before we begin our private sessions, here are some things I’d like you to know, or that I would like you to let me know.
In meditative inquiry, we investigate the beliefs and perceptions that you have about yourself, others, and the wider world. As with other mindfulness-based practices, I do not give advice, nor do I attempt to change or manage your beliefs or behaviors. By inquiring directly into the nature of your present experience, beliefs, patterns, and conditioning often unravel and profound changes can occur. I do not offer or guarantee specific results or outcomes. My commitment to you is my whole-hearted presence and attention during our session.
Sessions provide a safe, non-judgmental space in which any information or feeling can be shared. If, at any time during a session, you feel discomfort about the process or you wish to stop, please let me know. We will continue only if you wish to do so.
If you have or think you are suffering from a medical or psychological condition, please consult your doctor or other appropriately qualified professional. I am not a substitute for nor am I offering medical or psychiatric support or care. I am certified as a minister and this process of inquiry is based in awareness and trauma informed mindfulness, not therapy.
If at any time you are considering suicide or any other form of self-harm or harm to others please discuss it with me. Everything that you share in sessions is treated with the strictest of confidence unless you or someone else is at immediate risk of harm or mandatory reporting laws apply.
