Here at Mindbody Psychology the goal is to work on the whole person treating each person as an individual and using specific strategies for that person. The goal is for the practitioner and the client to work together and work collaboratively to gain the life back.
When we pay deliberate attention to what we are doing, we engage different parts of the brain. We experience things directly, through the senses, and avoid getting caught up in worrying, dwelling, judging and fight/flight reactivity. We all experience this way of being at times – while exercising, playing music, being in nature, engaging in hobbies and spending times with loved ones, for instance. In these moments, we are effortlessly in the present, fully engaged in the senses and fully present.
