Zen and the Art of Dealing with Stress or put it simply.. Meditation.

I have just been asked about my stand on dealing with stress.

As a therapist, I have supported my clients in making the contents of their subconscious conscious so that the person has greater awareness of exactly what is going on the deeper mind and nervous system.

One of the most effective ways of doing this is to develop techniques that will assist a person in digging deeper into the subconscious mind. Meditation is one such technique that I have used to with my clients, but it takes discipline, but everyone who has committed to the discipline, has found a new ability to deal with stress and learn how to release it.

This is because I have discovered through my own practice,  that we each hold the answer to every predicament and self-knowledge gained through meditation is a powerful way to access the knowledge. It may be buried deeply in our minds, but it is there and all we have to do, is to begin the practice of witnessing which is what serious meditation is about.
