> Learn to meditate with Emmanuelle Gernet
Emma is a psychologist and psychotherapist, EMDR practitioner, in the Pléneuf-Val-André health center. She uses the techniques of hypnosis, sophrology and mindfulness meditation during her consultations.
Exercising mindfulness meditation is, in fact, practicing focusing on the present moment in a voluntary, conscious, non-judgmental manner. We no longer live our life on automatic pilot by reproducing the same gestures without even thinking : we are working to reconnect on our personal barometer. In addition, practicing mindfulness has a positive effect on the brain, our general well-being, morale, stress reduction and even the whole body.
Mindfulness meditation is ...
- Return your attention to the present moment, as often as possible.
- Examine the thoughts and emotions that cross our mind and rise in us.
- Follow their development by adopting a “neutral” position without attempting to control, judge or analyze them.
The session : 80 € for 1 hour, in the cottage or the garden depending on the weather.
Reserve in advance to agree on time.
