During the Leaves on a Stream audio activity, you will practice mindfulness by envisioning the release of your thoughts onto a gently flowing river. This technique will allow you to focus on the here-and-now, avoid overthinking, and escape the daily jumble of worries, to-do lists, and other demands.
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) uses leaves on a stream to teach the practice of defusion, or separating yourself from your thoughts. However, this technique fits into many mindfulness-based interventions.Note: Once launching the tool, you may download this audio to carry with you on a portable device, or send to clients electronically.
