Mindfulness Meditation for Relationships
To attain happier, more satisfying relationships it is important to see beyond your own wants and needs and become more mindful of how our thoughts and actions affect our relationships.
Mindful Presence uses mindfulness meditation techniques to help you be more open, compassionate, and self-aware. This involves deliberately directing your attention away from negative, judging thoughts, and allows you to be more present and connected to what is happening right now.

What You Will Learn
Mindfulness meditation not only helps you understand relationships better, but it will also help you gain the inner strength to overcome your insecurities. When you meditate, you quiet the excess chatter in your mind and steady your emotions so you don’t react as quickly to other people’s words or actions. When the mind is clear you can “see” everything more easily and are able to better respond to what’s actually going on. With consistent practice, you will cultivate greater peace, harmony, and more loving relationships with everyone you encounter. In Mindful Presence’s mindfulness meditation training for healthy relationships sessions, you will learn techniques to:
- Build present-moment, non-judgmental awareness
- Slow down reactivity
- Enable compassion and empathy
- Enhance emotional self-regulation
- Listen mindfully with attending skills and reflective responses
- Increase your emotional intelligence
- Gain health and wellness benefits

Meditation is an important part of mindfulness, whether you initially enjoy it or not, as it awakens you to your current situation. When you practice with an alert and open mind for just a little bit of time, you will begin to recognize the benefits that naturally occur and become accustomed to the practice.
