This four-week mindfulness foundations course is perfect for you if you are curious about mindfulness, want to learn the different ways you can practice mindfulness, or have had a practice in the past you would like to rekindle.
"I owe Stephanie and her meditation classes so much. They are providing me with the tools to manage myself, my experiences, my expectations, and my life. I didn't realize before I began learning mindfulness techniques how much they would touch my life." Elise
Join us for this live, interactive online 4-week course.
Learn how to:
- manage your stress,
- cultivate a greater sense of compassion for yourself and others, and
- be present in your life.
In this highly experiential course, we will engage in interactive dialogue, sitting meditation, gentle qigong moving meditation (can be done sitting or standing), and simple breathing practices
Specifically, we will:
- Explore what mindfulness is (and is not)
- Foster present moment awareness so you can be aware of when you are operating on automatic or are focusing on the negative so much that you are missing many positive moments in your life.
- Connect with your body so you can notice when you are carrying tension and can be better aware of the signals your body is sending to you.
- Cultivate a sense of kindness towards and patience with yourself so you can calm the mind and minimize the negative self talk.
- Create a personal practice that works for your life.
"Stephanie's meditation sessions combine thoughtful discussions of a variety of mindfulness activities with a guided meditation that uses that day's approach. I both enjoy these sessions and learn more about ways I can address stress in my life. Her patience with, and support of, our efforts to create a practice reinforces the importance of being kind to ourselves. I find these sessions an oasis of calm in an otherwise stressful world. Thank you, Stephanie!" Sherry

"I absolutely love the class that you taught. It has helped me to learn to stay grounded in my body. I especially love the body scan meditation. I feel that I am able to achieve a higher level of relaxation because of the class that I took with you.
I would highly recommend your class. The weekly class helped hold me accountable to practice skills learned and add new skills. It allowed us time to review skills learned the week prior. It helped to consolidate our own experience. And, you have such a soothing and affirming voice. I also love your compassionate approach. You are very knowledgable about different practice methods and shared books that could help us to increase our knowledge if we choose to do so. I really enjoy learning from you. Your instructions were clear and easy to follow. I really like the audio guided meditation files that you sent us. I listen to your guided meditations while I am learning to familiarize myself with each practice.
The amount of time that we spent on each class was perfect! It was not too long and not too short. It gave us enough time to practice together, learn new information and skills, and practice together agaiin.
The class helped me to build confidence. I feel that I can meditate any where and at any time. It helped me to understand that the time that I invested in myself will help carry me through the day. It continues to help me to stay grounded and present.
I am very grateful that I took the class from you. Much appreciation." Kay
