Please visit our virtual sangha on Facebook at We Are the Ones! I'm posting meditation tips, inspirations and ways we can act to heal ourselves, the earth, and our relationship to it.
I am currently offering a variety of classes and workshops addressing different aspects of mindfulness. Peruse the offerings below to find one that's right for you.
And if you are interested in private instruction (individual or family-based), or would like to set up a class for your community, parents' group, etc, please contact me directly.
And be sure to check out "Sit Breathe Love", our collection of guided meditations for families and classrooms!
[WORKSHOP: MEETING SAT APR 8 @ 1:30PM-4:00PM]
"It's a transformative experience to simply pause instead of immediately filling up the space. By waiting, we begin to connect with fundamental restlessness as well as fundamental spaciousness."
-- Pema Chödrön
We live in demanding times. Self-care has become a mandate rather than a luxury.
We must prioritize restorative practices and healing activities that fill us up,
resource us, rejuvenate us. Only then can we be present for the needs
of our families, our communities and the world.
So please join us for a playful and healing afternoon of mindfulness meditation,
deep relaxation, lecture, discussion, mindful movement, and creative
intention-setting in the company of other women. Come prepared to
drop your stress, open your heart, and enjoy the support
that comes from practicing in community.
No experience required. Wear comfortable clothing and warm socks. Treat yourself!

"If your mind becomes firm like a rock and no longer shakes in a world where everything is shaking
Your mind will be your greatest friend and suffering will not come your way."
-- early poem from the Therigatha

[MEETING SOME FRIDAY EVENINGS @ 7:00-8:15PM]
Come to this restorative candlelit gathering to shed the stess, worry and anxiety of the week and enter the weekend with renewed balance and clarity. We'll do some very mellow mindful movement, followed by a supported (with props) guided body scan or other restorative mindfulness practice, and then end with some lovingkindness, gratitude or compassion practice. Empty your mind, release your tension, fill your heart, return home.
Friday, March 10, 7:00-8:15pm
Drop in, or register in advance here.
