What we're about

We are all about finding a moment of peace, ease, and relief in our fast-paced, pressure driven, demanding lives. We love coming together each week in a beautiful, safe space to learn and practice all kinds of mindfulness techniques that allow us to feel calm, relaxed and connected with others who feel the same way.

Mindfulness is more than just being present and aware of your thoughts and feelings - sometimes that's overwhelming. It is paying a special kind of attention - one that is balanced, non-judgmental, kind and compassionate so that you can approach life with more freedom, calm, and balance.

Whether you are new to mindfulness or an experienced practitioner, this group is intended to be a place of coming together and practicing tried and true techniques to feel calm, centered, and in control of your life.

This group is for you if you answer yes to any of the following:

Do you ever feel overwhelmed, stressed, worried, rushed, or anxious?

Do people often tell you you need to relax and get out of your head?

Do people tell you you're being hard on yourself?

Do you have trouble sleeping because your thoughts or feelings just won't stop?

Do you feel burned out by your job or your to-do list?

Do you have unwanted thoughts and feelings?

Do you feel stress or anxiety in relationships?

We've been there. And we've found tools to overcome.

I'm Elana Morgulis, MFT, E-RYT and this group is co-facilitated by Dr. Ellis Edmunds, PsyD. I'm a licensed psychotherapist and yoga teacher and Ellis is a licensed psychologist. We have practices in Rockridge and Piedmont, CA where we specialize in treating adults with anxiety, depression, and self-esteem issues.

Online Midday Meditation Break

Online event

Join me Thursday on Zoom at 11-11:30am for a Midday Meditation Break. I know this time has been challenging for many of us. The uncertainty has us stressed and anxious. Some of you have mentioned wishing for an easier way to remember to practice self-care and meditation. I also know not all of us are struggling. Even if you're hanging in there just fine, there's always benefit in having a time to check in with yourself. That's why I've decided to (finally) offer a time and space online for a mindfulness meditation break. Many online meditation sessions right now are being held in the early mornings or evenings for longer practices. I'm inviting you to take a break in the middle of whatever your day looks like right now to pause, connect to the present moment, breathe, and care for yourself - so you can return to your day, your work, your family, your children, your partner, your cat feeling centered, refreshed, and more like yourself. - create space in your day to check in with yourself - reduce stress, anxiety, and tension - practice self-care with a live guided meditation - stay accountable to your practice - connect with others practicing with you in this isolating time What to expect is simple: we'll start with a 15-20 minute guided meditation, you can then hop right off and get back to your day, or you can stay on for Q+A. If you can't make it live the meditation will be recorded! No prior meditation or journaling experience needed. This is a donation-based offering, and there is no requirement to pay anything. I really just want you there. I hope to see you at the link below this Thursday at 11am! https://us02web.zoom.us/j/628122098 Please do share this with friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, and anyone you feel might benefit.
