Mindfulness is about bringing intentional awareness, curiosity & kindness to present moment experiences so that we can navigate life’s ups & downs with greater compassion & wisdom.
Cultivating mindful awareness settles the mind & opens the heart in ways that allow us to experience the circumstances of our lives with a deeper sense of balance, gratitude & perennial wellbeing.
Cultivating mindful awareness can be experienced through many different modalities & techniques (often referred to as contemplative practices), which is why I take a compassionate, integrative approach that honors our unique dispositions & learning styles.
Ultimately though, mindfulness is a way of being, expressed through our true nature. These courses help us reconnect with innate qualities that are already within us. This unfolding of rediscovery can have boundless benefits.
