Would you like to explore the benefits of mindfulness? Are you curious about meditation or finding ways to reduce stress? Would you like to explore intimacy and relationships? As a contemplative educator, I join experiential exercises with talks, including mindfulness, body/mind education, artistic process, dialogue, small group process, study and readings, discussion groups, and self-reflection.  (more copy not on home page)
