Through simple practices done in a caring community atmosphere, you could suddenly relax and find yourself here and now.

Here are three unique trainings to help you reduce anxiety and bring more mindfulness into your day-to-day life.

Mindfulness for Anxiety

This training will get you started with a solid mindfulness practice, and offer a toolkit to help ease anxiety in your day-to-day life.
  • Learn an embodied approach to mindfulness
  • Develop greater awareness
  • Become more confident and clear
  • Apply tools from life coaching to build the habit of mindfulness in your day to day life

One of the things that commonly fuels anxiety is accumulated stress. We we get overwhelmed being busy with too many things, and it becomes difficult to slow down and simply relax. Mindfulness provides a time-tested method that short-circuits the busy mind and helps us ground in the ordinary goodness of here and now. During this training you’ll learn how to practice mindfulness meditation, how to take the practice home and make it your own, and how to apply mindfulness to ease anxiety.

  • Develop more resilience for when the going gets tough
  • Connect with the power of gentleness to ease struggle and anxiety
  • Apply tools from life coaching to build the habit of mindfulness in your day-to-day life
The practice of mindfulness brings us face to face with a challenge: To meet our own naked self, exactly as we are. This requires us to be brave, and at the same time, gentle. Indeed these two together, bravery and gentleness, are a superlative combination to meet the challenges of our everyday life. The practice of mindfulness awakens and cultivates these natural strengths.

Reconnecting with Your Source

This training will help you connect more fully with the beauty and goodness all around you, and inside of you.
  • Reconnect with you core self: your seat of confidence, purpose and joy

  • Learn a method that can help you gradually, and suddenly, boycott habitual anxiety
  • Apply tools from life coaching to build the habit of mindfulness in your day to day life
Each of us has a natural connection with the power and beauty of life and of the world. Sadly many of us have lost touch with this fundamental resource, and beyond that we have lost touch with the ability to actually get back in touch. However we are not as far off as we might think. Mindfulness can create a shift, a re-set, that helps you tune back in with your intrinsic ability to simply be, fully present with the ordinary goodness of the here and now.

Why Mindfulness?

Mindfulness meditation is possibly the simplest thing a human being could ever do. And actually it’s not really ‘doing’ much all all, it’s more a practice of ‘being.’ But this practice of “simply being” can be very powerful, because it cuts through the intense speed of our habitual mind, and helps us ground in the ordinary goodness of the present moment.

Mindfulness helps us drop out of our head, down to our body and heart, and hence it helps us become more embodied in our full humanness. With practice we rediscover strengths and resources we may forgotten were ever there in the first place.

But I can't meditate!

Meditation is certainly not for everyone, but sometimes people have a mistaken idea of how it’s supposed to work. Meditation is not in any way trying to empty your mind or stop your thoughts, which are impossible anyway.

When people try mindfulness meditation they often think, “I can’t meditate, my mind is too speedy!” Yet, according to the tradition, this experience of speedy mind is actually the beginning point of the journey of meditation. Seeing our mind, exactly as it is, is where we start. From there the path unfolds and we gradually learn to settle. Mindfulness practice teaches us how to slow down and be more fully present, for ourselves, for other people, and for society. Our distracted and busy mind is not the basic thing, rather it’s a habit that has become engrained. Mindfulness practice helps us gradually loosen up and let go of that habit. By gently and repeatedly coming back to the present moment, the habitual mind begins to relax and we tune into the natural openness of our experience. It’s not easy, because the momentum of our speed is intense. But if we stay with it something starts to shift, and we find ourselves suddenly here and now.

Extensive research shows that mindfulness:

  • strengthens emotional regulation
  • increases cognitive flexibility
  • increases compassion for self and others
  • improves ability to be aware and attentive in the present moment
  • reduces stress and anxiety

"There's a catch though. The best kept secret of mindfulness is that the journey really begins when we arrive in the practice with our mind "exactly as it is," not as we "want" it to be. Or put another way, the journey begins when we are ready to "start where we are."
