Mindfulness in Recovery
Being mindful allows you to connect with your inner self. You are able to become aware or conscious of the present moment, while acknowledging and accepting your feelings and thoughts. People have been practicing mindfulness for thousands of years. Mindfulness is a practice involved in many religious and secular traditions, from Hinduism and Buddhism to yoga and, more recently, non-religious meditation.
Mindfulness techniques are proven to be extremely effective as a component and pathway of recovery.
One of the fastest growing fields in recovery is rooted in the proven approach of mindfulness. Vermont is in the early stages of developing a trained network of mindfulness recovery services.
