Mindfulness 2.0

Develop 8 Qualities of The Mind to Thrive. Anywhere, Anytime.

Did You Know…

95%

of your decisions are made unconsciously?

In the absence of awareness, our unconscious minds dictate our thoughts, feelings, and behavior based on past conditioning.

With mindfulness training to develop the 8 qualities of the mind, you can breakthrough habitual patterns and make choices that enhance your well being. In a fast-changing world, these qualities of the mind are essential to thrive.

Welcome to the 8-Week Know Your Mind online training. I am Shalini Bahl. I have created this program after thousands of hours of mindfulness training from some of the best mindfulness teachers, research in neuroscience and psychology, and personal search to carry forward the benefits of mindfulness into how we live, work, and learn.

Don’t believe me but see what others are saying about this program and better still, explore for yourself, how these practices can benefit you.

This Program Is For You If:

You have taken the online quiz to Know Your Mind and want to develop one or more qualities of the mind to thrive.

You are feeling stressed or overwhelmed and don’t have the time to take a mindfulness class.

You would like to cultivate the skills to navigate change and challenges with clarity and ease.

You have been practicing mindfulness but still feel stuck in habitual patterns of thinking and reacting.

You would like more energy and joy in your life.

You would like to get better at integrating mindfulness in everyday life.

You would like to strengthen your mindfulness skills but feel lost with the plethora of meditations and programs to choose from.

You don’t have the time or place to systematically develop mindfulness.

Or you just want to continue to deepen your experience and practice of mindfulness

Can you commit to just 10 – 15 minutes every day to know your mind and systematically develop the 8 qualities of the mind to thrive?

How is this different from other mindfulness programs?

  • More Than Awareness: This program breaks down mindfulness into 8 qualities of the mind that you will be systematically developing. Mindfulness is more than awareness and focus. For example, you will be developing qualities such as energy, appreciative joy, and balance, which are not typically emphasized in mindfulness trainings.
  • More Than Meditation: This program is more than daily meditation. Real change happens when we also cultivate insight to see the bigger picture and consequences of our actions and act on these insights to practice skillful actions.
  • Daily Reminders: You will receive daily reminders by email with daily meditations, insight training(Sit with it tips) and suggestions to think, speak, and act skillfully (Run with it tips).
  • A Secular Program: If you have already taken the popular Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program and would like to continue to deepen your understanding and integration of mindfulness in a secular way, this program allows you to do that.
  • Combining Mindfulness Wisdom with Science: This program is grounded in teachings from original mindfulness texts backed by research in neuroscience, psychology, and management. Read my published and award winning research here.
  • Practice Anytime, Anywhere: You will receive daily emails with guided meditations and tips. You can practice mindfulness anytime, anywhere.
  • Daily Breakthroughs: The focus of this program is to make small breakthroughs every day in how you think and act. This will energize and motivate you to keep practicing.
  • Teacher with more than 15 years mindfulness experience, research, and professional certifications: I have studied, practiced, researched, and taught mindfulness for many years and from some of the best teachers and institutions in the US including the Center for Mindfulness at UMass Medical School and The Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (that created the mindfulness-based emotional intelligence program at Google).

About Me

Shalini Bahl, Ph.D.

Mindfulness Educator, Researcher, & Consultant

I am committed to making mindfulness accessible to individuals and organizations to transform how we live, work, and learn. Having worked with thousands of people around the world, I recognize the importance of knowing our minds and developing skills to change habitual ways of thinking and reacting. In the absence of awareness, we are limited by our past experiences that continue to determine how we experience and act in the face of changing situations.
My research in the transformative potential of awareness and mindfulness has been published in premier marketing, consumer research, and public policy journals. I have been fortunate to work with a wide variety of organizations including non-profits, schools, and organizations such as Northwestern Mutual and Salesforce.

I received my PhD training in marketing from the Isenberg School of Management, UMass and am a Chartered Accountant (equivalent of CPA). My mindfulness training includes certification from the Center for Mindfulness, UMass Medical School and the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (the mindfulness program that started at Google).

Recommendations

"I recently completed the Mindfulness 2.0 Program at Shalini’s Downtown Mindfulness studio in Amherst along with my wife Laurie. This was our second MBSR training program working with Shalini and we shared the experience with some of our previous classmates as well. Laurie and I found the program to be transformative and life changing by effectively teaching us so many skills to calm our minds and bodies. The eight sessions were skillfully organized according to her amazing and richly crafted workbook that is certain to be published soon. Shalini brings a tremendous breadth of skills to the program including guided meditations, well-structured sessions and personal insights in her relaxing comfortable studio that result in a very effective learning experience. Every week Shalini led us to discover and express so many practical examples of how mindfulness skills were helping each of us every day. Laurie and I found that committing to this practice as a couple was very important for us as we continue to learn and grow after 34 years together. Shalini has taught us so much about meditation, insight and skillful actions that we try to incorporate into our lives. We find that having someone close to practice with does help reinforce the many benefits of mindfulness. Laurie and I are grateful to have practiced with Shalini as she is a wonderful teacher and an equally nice person. Mindfulness is a permanent part of our lives now. Thank you Shalini. We will see you for 3.0 in the future."

"She practices what she preaches. She brings her own life to the teaching. She is very relatable."

Participant, Mindfulness Training

"I had a great experience with the Introduction to Mindfulness Course! Even after 6 sessions I found concrete ways to improve my communications and it has already had an impact on my entire family. I highly recommend it."

Karen, UMass Professor

"Two weeks ago I finished Shalini Bahl's 8-week mindfulness class. To call the work life changing is an understatement. In a slow, quiet way she expertly introduces the science behind the practice. She meets students where they are and guides them to the next step. Perhaps most importantly, she creates a very safe and welcoming space for all to relax into. To address the stressors in your life requires an openness and honesty that is not easy for all. In a very short time Shalini convened a true learning community that allowed each student to share and learn from their experience in the way that s/he feels safest to do so."
