What we're about

There are many ways to learn to live more mindfully. I would like to invite you to learn mindfulness to enhance your own well-being and enjoyment of this only life you have. I will be offering several mindfulness programs and welcome your feedback about these and other mindfulness programs and practices that you've found to be helpful.

Among the programs offered are: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) an 8-week training program utilizing meditation and gentle yoga, that has been proven to be effective for reducing physical and psychological pain and illness and helping you to find more peace and grace in dealing with life's inevitable ups and downs.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week program designed to help participants become more awake and aware, present, and peaceful. Using mindfulness meditation and gentle yoga, mindfulness training can help you live more fully, more authentically, and with ease and grace, joy and compassion. This MBSR course has many potential benefits ranging from the reduction of physical and psychological pain and illness, to improved relationships, increased strength and confidence, an improved ability to cope with both short and long-term stressful situations, and greater energy and enthusiasm for life.

Another of the programs is Eat Right Now, an approach to mindful eating, based on scientific research, that helps you identify and change unhealthy, reactive eating habits. The ERN app provides short videos to teach mindful eating in "bite-size" daily sessions of 10 minutes or less for 28 days. The mindful eating sessions offer group support as you learn and practice mindful eating with others who are dealing with the same issues.

Mindful Meditation is yet another way to learn and practice mindfulness skills. These 1-hour classes are held weekly and will focus on a selected aspect of mindfulness for practice each month.

Mindfulness vs. Monsters

Online event

Monster: (n) “an imaginary creature that is typically large, ugly, and frightening.” Note the word IMAGINARY in the above definition. Monsters are not real unless you make them so. Likewise, many of our thoughts are completely void of reality unless we believe otherwise. When we give thoughts power they don't have, we suffer. Like monsters, our thoughts can be, “large, ugly, and frightening”, until you turn on the light of awareness and see that they are just things that, by themselves, are not a threat. The emotional energy and the story we give thoughts are what can make them scary and make us stressed out, anxious, angry, or fearful. Bringing a mindful presence to the present moment can eliminate monster thinking and promote health and healing. Join me for this month's free exploration into an aspect of mindfulness that examines thoughts and puts them into a proper perspective.
