Syracuse Circle of Hope Special Event: January 2015

by

MorningMeditationThis month we are welcoming Sherie Ramsgard, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, to lead our Syracuse Circle of Hope Support Group session.  This session will meet on Wednesday, January 14th from 7:30p-8:30p.
This session will explore the benefits and process of everyday mindfulness because mindfulness is normal; it is not something special, limited to Buddhists, mystics, academics, or psychologists.  This is a simple process that any human being can undertake.  Mindfulness is not always an easy thing to do, particularly if you have never experienced anything like this before or if you are going through intense pain or strong emotions.  But the techniques required to cultivate greater mindfulness are incredibly simple and are available to any human being free of charge.  As time progresses, mindfulness becomes easier and easier to develop and being in the present moment becomes as much of a habit as our normal state of distractedness.  For more information on Sherie’s practice, please visit www.wholementalwellness.com
We welcome you to try Yoga for Fertility for free immediately before this support group meeting (6:00p-7:15p).  No yoga experience is necessary.
This support group session will take place in the CNY Fertility kitchen.  Please use the rear entrance of the building, and our CNY Healing Arts receptionist will direct you to the kitchen.  Please RSVP to Lisa:  Lstack@cnyfertility
Finally, did you know that we started  new Private Facebook Fertility and Pregnancy Groups for current clients?  Here, you can find a safe and secure space to share with other women and men facing similar challenges.  You can get immediate support and feedback!  If you are interested in joining, please message Lisa Stack within the Patient Portal

Holiday Support: Mindful Meditation

by

candleAs we are right in the middle of our winter holidays, this is a perfect week to focus on mindful meditation.  This week, let us focus on leaving all of the judgement, negativity, sadness, and anxiety behind us.
The mind is an integral component of your fertility.  Keeping a mindful and open outlook will invite creative thinking, and the clarity to process challenging emotions.  If you are open and present, you may find yourself interested in trying new ways to improve your fertility.  For example, you may have the energy and confience to try Yoga for Fertility, or you may have the willingness to share in a support group or counseling setting.
If your mind is preoccupied with negative repetitive thoughts, which can be expected while coping with infertility, it may be challenging to open yourself to new treatments and fertility supporting practices.  Dr. Kiltz strongly believes in the importance of Mindful Meditation, and its many benefits to all who pratice.  One of the greatest benefits of meditation is the skill of coping with challenging emotoins.  With practice, you will find that you are able to acknowledge the emotion, give it the space to be present for a few moments, and then successfully redirect that emotion into someting more productive for your fertility.
For a very simple meditation practice, close your eyes and place your hands on your abdomen.  Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose, and notice your hands rise as your belly expands.  Exhaling through your mouth, slowly whisper the word “out” to yourself.  With each exhale, push all of the negativity, challenges, and concerns out of your being.  Repeat this breathing cycle for as long as you would like, starting slowly with just a few breaths.
To help you with your Mindful Meditation practice, we have a library of meditations available for you, here.  We also have meditation webinars, workshops, and yoga sessions available.  You can find the next session close to you, on our CNY Fertility and CNY Healing Arts calendars.
Finally, did you know that we started  new Private Facebook Fertility and Pregnancy Groups for current clients?  Here, you can find a safe and secure space to share with other women and men facing similar challenges.  You can get immediate support and feedback!  If you are interested in joining, please message Lisa Stack within the Patient Portal
