Soul Care FAQs

What is soul care?

What is soul care?

Soul Care is learning how to take care of the innermost part of our being. We often talk about things like mindfulness or meditation as a good thing to do. Soul Care at Living Well gives you an opportunity to practice it in the comfort of a small group setting.

What is mindfulness?

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is being attentive to the present moment, on purpose, without judgment. There are many ways to practice mindfulness, but the goal of mindfulness is “focused relaxation”. It is helpful for dealing with negativity, depression, anxiety, racing thoughts and often used in both emotional and physical pain management.

Isn’t meditation an Eastern religious practice?

Isn’t meditation an Eastern religious practice?

For many, the word meditation brings to mind the image of someone sitting crosslegged, with their eyes closed and thumb and forefinger touching lightly, chanting quietly to themselves with the purpose of emptying their mind. But, the word meditate actually means to think deeply, mull over or ponder carefully. From a Christian perspective, meditation is essential to the Christian walk and being transformed and comforted as one meditates on God’s promises, His character, and His love. 

What is contemplative prayer?

What is contemplative prayer?

Some define it as the discipline of silence. A discipline or practice always has a purpose. In the words of St. Teresa, “ Contemplative prayer … means taking time frequently to be alone with him who we know loves us.” Contemplative prayer is learning to sit quietly in the presence of God and rest in his love.

Happy Clients

“Kim’s guided meditation with Scripture was transformative for me. I recently had been allowing some shame loops to repeat in my brain, leading me to fear and anxiety. Being part of her meditation allowed me to see my world from a new perspective and help me break free of some chains that were holding me back in my growth. Her gentle voice and ability to sit in silence with others is truly a gift. It is an experience that is so needed in our world today!”
