8-Week Mindfulness Live Online Program

Mindfulness provides you with techniques that enable you to exercise control over how you experience life, enabling you to live your life with skill, confidence and less stress.

What is the 8-Week Mindfulness Program?

The 8-Week Mindfulness Program is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) that grew out of the groundbreaking mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School's Center of Mindfulness in the 1970's.

This program uses a combination of mindfulness meditation, body awareness and mindful movement to explore behavior, thinking, feeling and action. It assists with a range of conditions and life issues that range from physical pain to burnout. These practices can work for anyone who struggles with the constant demands of the modern world.

Course Description

What is the course structure and commitment?

Each of the 8 weeks focuses on a particular theme that builds on the prior session:

      • Week 1: Start to learn to stabilize the mind and see the control you can gain when you focus your attention on what you're actually experiencing in the moment.
      • Week 2: Become aware of the power of your body as your own person internal guidance system.
      • Week 3: Explore the mind/body connection and learn how to read the body’s “early warning stress signals,” so you can manage situations before they become a problem.
      • Week 4: Develop skills that enable you to look at difficult thoughts and feelings in a way that supports your being more relaxed.
      • Week 5: Bring awareness to difficult situations, explore ways that enable you respond in a way that supports your gaining control over stress.
      • Week 6: Cultivate the ability to celebrate your personal power and confidence as you get more in control of your life.
      • Week 7: Explore lifestyle choices that are adaptive and self-nourishing.
      • Week 8: Weave mindfulness in your daily life, so you can maintain the momentum developed during the course.

Because you will be working from home during the program you will be consciously and systematically working with the challenges and demands of your everyday life. And I will create a safe and supportive environment for this work and learning through:

      • Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
      • Gentle stretching and mindful movement
      • Group dialogue and discussions aimed at enhancing awareness in everyday life
      • Systematic instruction in both formal MBSR and MBCT meditation practices
      • Opportunities to check in with me
      • Online resource materials and video conferencing

You must be willing to make a strong commitment to attend all classes and to practice daily home assignments for eight weeks. If you are unable to attend your regularly scheduled class or anticipate missing two or more class sessions, we encourage you to considering registering for another term.

What bring you here?

I invite you to take a moment to pause and consider what brings you here. What is in your mind, heart and body that caused you to stop on this web page? You might pause for 10 or 20 seconds to get a clear sense of what brings you here.

More than likely, you quickly identified a “problem” or “challenge” that you face. It is something that causes you to suffer in some way, physically, emotionally or spiritually. Among the difficulties people report when they come to mindfulness classes are such things as:

Chronic pain

Stress

Anxiety and worry

Chronic illnesses

Burnout

Depression

Relationship difficulties

Sleep disturbance

Hypertension

Headaches

Grief and loss

The 8-Week Mindfulness Program is highly respected within the medical community and is proven to be effective in helping to treat the conditions shown here.

Does this sound like you?

Do you ever find yourself caught up in cycles of stress, anxiety or negative thinking?

Do you worry about the smallest of things?

Does life ever feel overwhelming, or like a struggle?

Are you craving to find a sense of meaning and purpose in this frantic world?

Are you longing to find a sense of inner peace to carry you through it all?

 

8-Week Mindfulness Program is for you.

Imagine if you had the tools to align with your authentic self, untangle from unhelpful thoughts and emotions, and connect or stay connected with your unique sense of purpose, meaning and passion.

During the 8-Week Mindfulness Program you’ll learn and practice the tools that have been handed down from over 2,500 years ancient wisdom traditions and are now proven by modern science. You’ll leave feeling empowered, inspired and celebrating your own inner wisdom.

Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. [Through it,] we also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation and healing.
