Stillness Meditation & Psychotherapy

What is Stillness Meditation Therapy?

This therapeutic concept of meditation embodies the innovative work of renowned psychiatrist, Ainslie Meares.  While meditation per se is well recognised today for a variety of mindful, relaxation and spiritual purposes, Stillness Meditation Therapy is notably different.  Medically based, SMT specifically targets mental health symptoms relating to tension and anxiety.   Stillness Meditation Therapy is more than relaxation, even more than meditation.  SMT is almost a philosophy, the way of living calm that restores physical and mental ease by reducing tension and its distressing reactivity.
