We practice and discuss Mindfulness Meditations and see how one responds in the moment to difficult or triggering situations. Becoming aware in the moment of sights, sounds, sensations, thoughts and emotions is part of Mindfulness training. Practicing Being in the moment, Urge Surfing, The Mountain, and SOBER Breathing Space have been found to be most helpful for many residents here at AToN Center.
The more aware one is the more they are able to assess what is needed as they pause and consider as opposed to behaving in a way that is not consistent with how one wants to be today in recovery.
