Taking the time for ourselves is sometimes a luxury in this busy world, and for some it is viewed as being selfish. However, if you really take the time to explore your thoughts, emotions, and body awareness, you may discover how present you can be to yourself and to others in your life. To be aware and present is truly a gift, not only to ourselves but to our friends and loved ones. Experiencing the good, the bad, and the ugly can be overwhelming at times and so allowing
ourselves to look within without
judgment, compassion and truth, provides us as humans the ability for the most transformative change.
“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”

If your company can benefit from mindfulness training, let me customize a practical program to teach mindfulness practices to your employees.
8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course
Through a set of mindfulness practices introduced throughout the 8-weeks, you allow time to observe your thoughts, emotions, and body awareness. It is through this observation and awareness that you can re-discover your inner world as well as the landscape around you. This awareness may provide insight into your life and a sense of well-being. I will guide the practices and provide audio materials to support you throughout the program. Check upcoming events for future courses.
“Mindful Awareness is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one’s physical, mental and emotional experiences.
Mindful Awareness Research Center at the University of California at Los Angeles
“Mindfulness isn’t just about knowing that you’re hearing something, seeing something, or even observing that you’re having a particular feeling. It’s about doing so in a certain way – with balance and equanimity, and without judgment. Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention in a way that creates space for insight.”
“Mindfulness in its most general sense is about waking up from a life on automatic, and being sensitive to novelty in our everyday experiences. With mindful awareness the flow of energy and information that is our mind enters our conscious attention and we can both appreciate its contents and come to regulate its flow in a new way. Mindful awareness, as we will see, actually involves more than just simply being aware: It involves being aware of aspects of the mind itself. Instead of being on automatic and mindless, mindfulness helps us awaken, and by reflecting on the mind we are enabled to make choices and thus change becomes possible.”
