A Mindful Life is a place for you to practice the tools you most likely already know will help you to live with more presence, ease, and happiness, but often get pushed aside for later, which rarely comes. Each week we come together in a uniquely intimate and safe community to practice: 1) mindfulness meditation, 2) gratefulness, 3) self-kindness and loving-kindness, 4) reflective exercises. Groups are limited to 12. Please note that these groups are for those who have some experience with meditation (it is not a meditation class) and for those willing to go deep with their inner explorations. 

This will be your dedicated space to listen to yourself, observe, reflect, and have space to be just as you are within a warm community of people who support you. It gives you precious time with yourself to remember what matters to you and to know what is alive in you and to share from that place. I am often told that the deeper, more genuine level of connection and communication that happens in these groups is hard to find outside. Each group is a special community which you, too, can be a part of.

Main Tools in A Mindful Life:

  • Mindfulness meditation. 

  • Gratefulness. Each week we work with a specific practice to contemplate on gratitude. It won’t be pushing gratitude on you, as if you “should” be grateful, but will invite you to enjoy what is around the specific topic. Gratitude brings more joy. 

  • Loving-Kindness and Self-Kindness. There will be an emphasis on cultivating kindness for ourselves and others. This will come in the form of guided exercises and meditations. We can find a kinder, gentler way of being with ourselves and others. 

  • Reflective Exercises. I will bring in a weekly topic and will ask a series of deepening questions for you to explore. I will guide you into your body to get a whole body awareness of what might be present. This will be a way for you to get to observe, to hear your needs, to know yourself better by diving in and asking yourself to stay with what is present underneath a subject.

How The Groups Run:

  • These are on-going groups, though participants commit to full segments to keep a cohesive group experience.

  • Limited to 12 participants. Inquire to see which group has room. Some may be full.

  • To keep group commitment and consistency, there are no make-ups or refunds for missed sessions.

  • Groups are currently on Zoom until fall 2021. The Wednesday evening group will stay on Zoom.

Who Might Benefit?

  • Do you feel you don’t have time for yourself?

  • Do you want to be guided in practices that will help you live with more presence, awareness, kindness & joy?

  • Do you want to feel more connected to yourself and be more of your genuine self?

  • Do you want deeper levels of connection and communication with others?

  • Do you struggle with negative thinking, anxiety or anger?

  • Do you find yourself to be overly controlling and unable to go with the flow?

  • Do you find yourself to be judgmental (of yourself and/or others)?

 

If you answered yes to any of these, this might be the group for you. Let's talk and find out.

A MINDFUL LIFE FOR THERAPISTS & LIFE COACHES - ZOOM GROUP

Being a therapist or a life coach can make it a challenge to find a place where you can put your hat aside and tend to your own self-care and discovery. People who care need to be cared for. This space is for you. It is no different than what we do in the other A Mindful Life groups. It is just set aside for you. Please see the description above and reach out if you are interested.

Mondays 11:00 am-12:15 pm EST on Zoom. Begins again 5/24/21
