Ken Hood is offering a new form of support and practice, called Meditative Counselling. Mostly it will be a short-term approach of about 5-6 weekly sessions, however it can run longer, if helpful. During this time, we will identify a particular area where you are having difficulty, or want to become stronger, and then create a customized bundle of meditations and mind-training tools to help you accomplish this. The work can be done in person or digitally through Zoom.
Each weekly session will run for about 65-70 minutes, and involves:
– A quick “check-in”.
– A 20-30 minute meditation session.
A conversation about your meditation session, experiences from the last week and anything else that comes up. We will tease out insights about what is arising in your body, heart and mind, and then figure out how to work with it.
learning a new meditation technique, usually each week.
and finally a quick “wrap-up”.
To be clear this is NOT therapy or psychotherapy, however Meditative Counseling can be used in a way that is complementary to traditional therapy, however not if someone is experiencing psychosis or serious delusional states. Meditation should also be used cautiously with trauma.
It is suitable for 1 or 2 people. The cost is $100 per session for one person and $150 for two. This cost includes HST.
“It’s never too late to start feeling better!”
“In a world of cookie cutter many-stepped programs that futilely promise change and always fall short, Ken Hood has provided me many opportunities and tools to effect real change in a complicated life. His wisdom, insight and knowledge have provided very real changes in my outlook on life, my behaviour and my satisfaction with life as it is and could be. His Buddhist based methodology has been the perfect complement to psychological problems that I’ve been trying to tackle for years and he has brought me a very long way in a very short time. His ability to tailor the subject matter to help with healing is very much a central part of my success in change. My love for Buddhism not withstanding, he has made the subject matter so applicable and appropriate that mini-revelations occur in each of our sessions. Ken has become my favourite hour of every week and I’m very glad to be ‘incepted’ each time. Thank you, Ken, for the growth and healing you have contributed to with each hour.”
