Mindfulness for Real Life Masterclass: 09/12/2023


You know that saying, “life is what you make it”? Well, it’s true. The way we live our lives, moment to moment, is a result of the thoughts and habits that we’ve developed over time. If we want to live a fulfilling life, we need to learn how to change our thoughts and habits.

That’s where the Mindfulness for Real Life Masterclass comes in. In this class, you’ll learn how our minds work on default and how we can learn skills to disrupt our default patterns and live with empowered choice. You’ll learn how to live with integrity, clarity, and intention.

The free Masterclass is also an opportunity to learn how you can continue to develop these skills in the 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program and the 8-week Return program. (You can watch my TEDx talk: Returning to the Field here.)

Join the Mindfulness for Real Life Free Masterclass on zoom from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.

What is Mindfulness

Mindfulness is our innate capacity to observe our experience—without rushing and reacting—that empowers us see clearly and make intentional choices that promote wellbeing for all involved.
However, we’re socialized to judge, rush, and react. Overtime, our conditioning takes over and we lose that connection with our ability to return to mindfulness in the middle of life.

Just meditation isn’t enough to disrupt our deeply ingrained habits.
