Certified Mindfulness Instructor

As a Certified Mindfulness Instructor for over 30 years, I can help you apply mindfulness and awareness practices to your life. This can come in the form of a meditative discipline, a therapeutic method, or as a way to simply be present and reduce stress. A mindfulness facilitator, I develop trainings for groups and businesses.


Benefits of Mindfulness and Awareness Practice

Our brains, knowingly or not, are constantly being shaped by our thoughts, emotions, and the environment around us. According to neuroscientist, Richie Davidson, there are four challenges facing today’s society: distractibility, loneliness, negative self-talk and depression, and loss of meaning and purpose. We can harness the power of neuro-plasticity to shape our minds and brains through mindfulness practice. By understanding what nurtures a healthy mind, we can cultivate simple disciplines that encourage connection. Research shows that simply being present inspires personal insights, a sense of purpose, and meaning in our lives.
