“Do what you can with what you have, in the time you have, in the place you are.”- Nkosi Johnson

We all have an enormous inner capacity to cultivate resilience, insight, behavioral changes and deepening equanimity.  

We don’t need to seek hidden caves or climb high peaks to gain more expansive perspectives on life and its inevitable ups and downs,  

and we don't need to spend endless hours on meditation cushions separated from the very challenges that trip us up.

We can learn to meet life, on life’s terms, with compassion, presence of mind, deeper insight and skillful actions. We can do all of the

above by  intentionally inclining our attention and actions towards deepening mindfulness in our everyday lives which essentially means that we learn to meet life as life shows up with increased grace, wisdom and skillful actions.

This popular and innovative series will combine mindfulness practices, yogic philosophy, modern psychology and behavioral science to help you build yourself an effective, user-friendly tool kit that you can utilize in your everyday life. You will be given assignments/home practices to do between sessions which will help you integrate the material into your mind, heart, actions and intentions.

This series is available for schools , businesses, and community groups and can be modified to meet your specific needs.
