Welcome to the Mindfulness & Metta Trauma Therapy (MMTT) website. On this site you can learn and practice therapeutic principles and exercises related to mindfulness and metta-based approaches to therapy to improve your self-regulation and help you recover from trauma and stressor-related disorders including problems with anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and dissociation.
On our website you will learn 6 therapeutic principles of mindfulness- and metta-based therapy:
You will also learn how you can begin applying these principles to your own life through a journaling exercise that we call Mindful and Metta Moments. Our website also includes guided meditations. Some forms of meditation include Mindful Movement, for example, walking meditations and some easy yoga stretches that, when combined with embodied imagery we call Symbolic Stretching. Other forms of meditation you can practice while sitting, standing, or lying down, for example, body scans and concentration-, mindfulness-, and metta-meditations, as well as guided visualizations and embodied imagery.
The underlined terms above are further described in our about page.
