Guided Meditation is a powerful tool for de-stressing. Clients have said that it helps them to feel simultaneously relaxed and energized, light and grounded, calm and alert.
Guided Meditation not only creates comfort in the moment, it also teaches you to be mindful of your body’s signals. Listening to your body enhances your sense of presence and allows you to use the intelligence of your body as a guide. Your dashboard tells you when your car needs gas. Your body language lets you know when it’s time to lower your stress-o-meter, when it’s time to say, No, and when it’s time to say, Yes.
When you’re more connected with your own bodily sensations, you’re more connected with your own resourcefulness. There’s a part of you that’s bigger than your thoughts, and bigger than your body. A part of you that can think clearly and feel genuinely at the same time. A part of you that’s still okay no matter what’s happening in the world around you. That’s the part of you that you get to know through guided meditation.
Guided Meditation can help you...
· Feel profoundly peaceful, centered, and comfortable
· Relieve anxiety so that you can think more clearly
· Develop confidence in your ability to care for yourself
· Strengthen your coping skills so that you are more resilient
· Listen to your gut, tap into your intuition, and trust your own judgment

Easy Eyes: I See You. I Am Here.
I wonder how many people I’ve looked at all my life and never seen.
The traditional Zulu greeting, Sawabona, translates as I see you. The usual reply is Sikbona, which means I am here. Their greeting is a recognition of each person’s wholeness, dignity, and value. It springs from a human truth—that we become who we are through our interactions with others, through being seen.
This group is about seeing others as they are. It’s about seeing the person who is behind the eyes. It’s about waking up to the world around you and the world within you. It’s about seeing yourself, hearing yourself, and being yourself. Each one of us is bigger than our thoughts, our judgments, and our habitual ways of being and perceiving.
When we don’t allow ourselves to truly see and be seen, we miss out on being connected with the world around us, with others, and even with ourselves. We miss out on enjoying the moment. We miss out on what matters most.
Easy Eyes® is a simple mindfulness practice with many practical applications. It helps you to feel better, think better, and live better. In this group, we’ll be using it for a powerful and direct effect on your relationships with others, and with yourself.
In Our Group, You’ll Learn Skills For…
-- Being present rather than preoccupied.
-- Deepening your connection with others and with yourself.
-- Managing the reactions that arise in difficult conversations.
-- Tapping into the wisdom of your body language.
-- Waking up to the everyday, ordinary pleasures of life.
Our Time Together Will Include…
-- Brief talks using readings, stories, and real-life examples.
-- Guided meditations for integrating your awareness and understanding.
-- Centering practices that will ground you through-out the day.

We're all just walking each other home.

Do your eyes ache from screen fatigue?
Would you like to have more energy as you go through the day?
Are your neck and shoulders tight after hours at the computer?
If there were ever a time for self-care, this is it! We all have things we need to get done, but you don’t have to choose between being productive and being comfortable. You don’t have to choose between caring for others and caring for yourself. You don’t have to choose between planning for the future and enjoying the present.
In this online workshop you'll learn 5 tools to help you attend to yourself while you also attend to the task in front of you. When you’re comfortable and energized, you can think more clearly and be more productive. You may even find that by using these tools, you’ll spend less time spinning your wheels and more time moving forward.
You can complete each of these easy-to-learn methods in five minutes or less. You’ll feel the results right away and when you use these methods regularly, the benefits will build. You won’t get as easily overwhelmed by stress because you’ll be more resilient.
