Important Mental Health Disclaimer
Meditation can be a highly beneficial self-care practice for realizing and processing your emotions safely and healthily. However, when it comes to specific events or past trauma, mediation can also bring difficult emotions to manage on your own. It is essential to support yourself and know your limits. Do not push yourself and only focus on what you are ready to focus on. While it is natural to feel uncomfortable, if your emotions become too overwhelming, it is important to take a step back and seek professional help from a trained counselor, therapist, or coach.
The courses and guided meditation offered are not intended to and are not a replacement for specific and professional advice from licensed medical professionals, counselors, and psychotherapists. Meditating about certain events can bring up difficult emotions and distress.
If you are in crisis or you think you may have an emergency, call your doctor or local emergency line immediately.
