guided meditation in Recovery
Benefits of guided meditation in sobriety coaching
There are many benefits guided meditation in sobriety. From shifting perspective to improving brain function to charting a new course in life, sober coaches can use meditation teacher training to help their clients move through the 12-steps with honesty & commitment.
Thought & Behavior
Shifting perspective & behavior
Effective recovery is a continual process of gaining perspective & improving behavior. Meditation improves our ability to see things from another’s point of view and how our behaviors affect those around us. Sober coaches could use the guided meditation techniques taught in The Guided Meditation Framework® to facilitate focused & meaningful engagement with each step, helping their clients to achieve insights about their past behaviors to improve resilience in the face of temptation.
Leaving the story behind
Moving beyond the "drunkalogue"
Sharing what it was like, what happened & what it’s like now is vital to unite friends of Bill in their resolve to stay sober. However, sober coaches need to help their clients move beyond the drunkalogue to look ahead and plan for a bright future in recovery. Coaches can use techniques of guided imagery & meditation for sobriety that can help addicts & alcoholics discover their values & goals and gain the level of mastery over the destructive thought processes of self-loathing & judgement necessary to stay clean.
Connecting with a power greater than ourselves
The Big Book couldn’t be clearer on this point: having a spiritual awakening is fundamental to long-term sobriety. Combining recovery and meditation can assist newcomers in taking this important step towards humility. The methods taught in The Guided Meditation Framework® can enable sober coaches to facilitate deeply personal & impactful experiences for their clients, assisting them to discover and connect with whatever they choose to define as a power greater than themselves.
Meditation & meetings
Start holding meditation-infused recovery meetings
Guided meditation can offer sober coaches an opportunity to support more people on their path to sobriety, and create professional opportunities outside of their private practice. By holding meditation recovery meetings, sobriety coaches can create meetings that go beneath the story to provide a more deep & meaningful experience than is typical in a meeting.
Additionally, coaches who specialize in recovery and meditation have an enormous opportunity to partner with treatment centers, rehabs and sober living facilities across the nation and connect with more potential clients in the process. Institutions are all recognizing the need for mindfulness & meditation in recovery, and many already offer in-house guided meditation services as a part of their treatment plan.
