Mindfulness Course

The Mindfulness Course is based on the principles found in various teachings including
“Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction”
Jon Kabat-Zinn.
In this 8 week session we explore stress reduction & life strategies for a healthier and more balanced life.  Instead of finding ourselves at the mercy of worry, fear, and anger , we grow in our ability to choose how we want to act in situations, often in ways that might have been out of our reach before.

Through the regular daily practice of Mindfulness Meditation we can completely change our relationship to stressors and greatly reduce the adverse affects of chronic stress.

Meditation and Spiritual Awakening

During the following weeks we reflect on the work of Michael Mirdad, Spiritual teacher and author.  “The Seven Initiations of the Spiritual Path, Understanding the Purpose of Life’s Tests”   Ultimately the spiritual path is ‘a journey without distance, to a place we never left’ (a Course In Miracles).  Let’s unwrap that and understand the meaning for our life.  Every path leads HOME and every path is part of the spiritual journey.  Learn how ancient civilizations used conscious intent to walk into higher levels of awareness…..Let’s journey together!

MindfulKids, Tweens and Teens

Mindfulness classes for Child and Parent or Tweens and Teens.

Children emulate what they see, hear, touch. The greatest gift we can give ourselves and our children is the ability to live sensational lives, to communicate without fear of reprisal, to acknowledge all of our senses and to live free of the reactive stress impulses we have become so accustomed to experience. This course series provides a way parents can help to promote tools for low-stress and more balanced emotional responses in their children.

MindfulKids – A Program of Stress Reduction & Life Strategies for children

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness, when applied appropriately, includes the qualities of

  • awareness (paying attention to one’s experience through the senses and the mind);
  • of non-judgment (not labeling things “good” or “bad” but rather observing with a neutral attitude);
  • and of stillness in heart and mind (though the body may be moving).

Mission Statement

Fostering healthy living practices in children while providing the Parent/Caregiver the support and the tools needed to nurture calmer, cooperative, compassionate families for a happy, healthy balanced life.

Goals

The focus of this initiative is to provide a relaxed atmosphere where mindfulness skills are presented and practiced together; where parent and child can share a common “holistic language”, a common understanding and can build together in fostering a healthy balanced lifestyle.

We seek to teach and develop tools to affect

  • Confidence building
  • Stress response
  • Assimilation of mindful living practices into daily life
  • How we validate emotions in ourselves and in others
  • How we recognize and diffuse triggers
  • Positive communication skills
  • How we view ourselves and others
