October 17 Soothing the Negative Voice

This session is about how to work with the critical or negative voice inside. We will discuss and practice mindful self-compassion and you will learn a simple exercise to use in daily life. Instead of mercilessly judging and criticizing yourself for various inadequacies or shortcomings, you can shift out of negativity when confronted with struggles.

October 24 How to Change Your Mind

This is the groundbreaking news of human development: Our brain is not a fixed machine, it is dynamic, responsive, and capable of shifting, growing new neural pathways and developing healthy habits that support happiness. In this session, we will practice a method to re-wire the brain over time to experience more presence and joy.

October 31 Meditation for Improving Sleep

By the end of this session, you will believe in your capacity to shift something to improve your sleep! We will practice a systematic process for falling into deep, lasting sleep.

November 7 Getting Into Your Body

In this session, we will explore bringing awareness into the body, so you can get out of your mind and into the present moment more fully. Embodiment is a skill that anyone can develop and there is a power that comes from being more centered. Able to tune in to see how you are feeling at any given moment, you can make intentional decisions about what you need to do based on how you are feeling.

November 14 Sharpen Your Concentration

Learn how “micro meditation” can enhance your ability to focus overtime, so you can stop inefficient multitasking and enjoy more productivity and stamina. Along with sharpened concentration comes the ability to direct your attention more effectively, so you can put it more fully towards whatever you are doing or not doing.

November 21 Stress Reduction With Mindfulness

Do you have things that bother you, but you can’t do anything about them anyways? In actuality, you can do something about it, you can be present to yourself and your experience in a way that helps reduce the stressful impact and brings more clarity. In this session, you will learn an exercise and practice a skill for mindfully managing stress day to day.
