Lion Brand Yarn Guest Post: Crochet as Meditation

breathe

“There is certainly something valuable to be found in formal meditation. However, it doesn’t work for all of us. In particular, people with mental health conditions including depression and anxiety may find it too difficult to simply sit on the cushion and watch the breath. We can use mindfulness crochet instead to bring ourselves back to the present moment, practicing compassion for ourselves and for others with each stitch.”

I’ve offered some tips for using crochet for meditation in a guest post over at Lion Brand Yarn.
