Is it possible to find some peace in the middle of the insanity?

So, your life is crazy.  You’re running as fast you can, trying to manage everything and take care of those around you.  And you’re worried about whether everyone’s going to be OK.  You have a lot on your plate.  And you know living this way isn’t good for you.

You’ve tried spending more time at the gym. You walk the dog. You’ve talked to your counselor and wondered if meds would help.  When evening rolls around you can forget about it all in front of the TV, but next morning that feeling is still there.  You only get temporary relief.

None of these things work for long because they don’t transform how you experience your life.  They only temporarily cover over the feelings.  They don’t help you deal with things as they happen in the moment.

There are two things that will help you find some moments of peace and serenity.  First, developing skills that help you stay in the here and now and second, learning how to bring them into your life so you can really experience the present moment with awareness, kindness and curiosity.

In this 9-week program you will experience mindfulness first hand for yourself and learn a variety of simple practices that you can use every day in your life to take care of yourself.

In this journey you will learn:

  • Practices that teach you how be present in the here and now
  • Ways to bring mindfulness into your everyday life
  • Methods for using mindfulness to improve your relationships with others
