MORNING OF MINDFULNESS

In-Person Retreat

Saturday, July 16, 2022 

9:00 am - 12:00 pm

A Mindful Life Studio 

697 Valley Street, Suite B4, Maplewood, NJ 07040

Join me for a restful morning of mindfulness and give yourself a mini-retreat to unplug and come into silence and inner stillness. The morning will largely be in silence as we practice guided, silent, and walking meditation. We will have a period of rest in a guided body relaxation scan.

 

There will be a Q&A period and time to share about your practice where we will strengthen our skills in mindful listening and speech. The morning is an opportunity to deepen your practices, come together as a community, and to rest in the present moment.

  • $35.00

  • The retreat will be limited to 8 participants.

  • Masks are currently optional.

  • Pre-registration required.

A MINDFUL RETURN FROM SUMMER

In-Person/Zoom Workshop

Coming Soon in August/September 2022

$40

Do you get anxious or feel some dread as summer winds down? Come together in this mindful exploration of what arises in us as life picks up in pace. Together we can set our intentions for the fall and see what tools we can use to support us in living with more ease, loving-kindness and peace of mind amidst a busier schedule. We will use meditation, Focusing, writing, and sharing to strengthen the tools we need to come back to ourselves and live as we want to live. We can digest the summer together and set ourselves up to approach whatever comes with as much ease, grounding, compassion, and presence as possible. Let's keep our mind and heart space healthy so that we can meet the fall months maintaining some peace of mind, humor, strength of spirit, and gratefulness. Feel supported by a mindful community as we welcome a new season. ​

5 WEEK BEGINNING MINDFULNESS MEDITATION SERIES

Next Session Fall 2022

Dates To Be Announced

$110

Why meditate? I can speak from my experience and from witnessing so many others over the years that through meditation practice we become better equipped to handle life’s stresses because we gain more tools in staying in the present, not reacting habitually, realizing when we are losing presence and choosing to return. We become more curious and less judgmental about ourselves and about others because we have greater awareness of what goes on in ourselves and in the world around us. Pausing and being still allows us to see more clearly and compassion for ourselves and for others comes more readily.

 

For five weeks, I will give the basic instructions, lead you in a guided practice. We’ll have time for observations and questions and then we will practice again. We will cover guided, silent, loving-kindness, and walking meditations. We will talk through a practice to use when a thought/feeling keeps pulling us out of the present moment and we will cover other daily mindfulness tools we can use. At the conclusion of these five weeks, we can find more opportunities for you to sit with a group on a regular basis. Being in community strengthens our commitment and practice. 

  • Pre-registration required.

  • $110.00 (no make-ups or refunds for missed sessions)

MINDFULNESS & CREATIVITY

Zoom Workshop

Saturday, June 4, 2022

9:00-10:30 am EST on Zoom

$30

Mindfulness & Creativity is a continually evolving workshop where we come together in community and see how we can bring the tools of mindful awareness, reflection, and deep inner listening to our creative selves. We will meditate and I will guide you through exercises that invite us into a space of curiosity, kindness, and compassion as we lean into our creative process and honor all of it -- the inspiration, the blocks, the movement and the stuck-ness. Whatever our creative outlet may be, we can explore together and feel the support of a mindful community. Each workshop will be different, evolving based on what questions and discoveries the participants unearth in the previous session.

Join us online for some meditation and mindful reflection. Let's slow ourselves down and gain awareness by leaning in and sharing in a supportive community. You do not need to be an artist by profession to attend! Dabblers and anyone who sees their life as creative (which it is!) are welcome. 

  • $30.00

  • Workshop limited to 14 participants.

  • Pre-registration required.​​
