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, increased focus deeper insight and skill. We can do all of the

above by  intentionally inclining/training 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, evidence-based 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.

If you have questions or concerns I will happily speak with you so don't hesitate to contact me at donnalynnsherman@gmail.com or through the contact option

here and we can set up a time to talk.

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

Want It & Do It: Untangle an Unwanted Habit and Embed a Positive Behavior


Tuesdays June 21 & 28, 2022 7-8:15 pm 


To enroll: contact me at donnalynnsherman@gmail.com with "Want it/Do It" in subject line

In this 2 session, highly focused, series you will work with one positive behavior that you wish-deep in your bones-to plant firmly into your daily life. You will be

given specific instructions, tools and practices that will help you firmly plant new patterns into your life that gain traction.


Our inner patterning can feel like a behavioral and emotional straitjacket that keeps putting the squeeze on us despite our desires to escape its’ grasp.Often

how we think about the things that prevent us from moving forward contribute to the dynamic of becoming mired in procrastination and negative self talk.

This engaging and dynamic series will utilize tools from psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness-based interventions, behavioral sciences and good old

common sense.

Here's what will be happening:


You will define your clear, measurable heartfelt desire/goal.

You will be given concrete suggestions for incrementally designing your new pattern(s) that will both set the foundation for working towards your goal and

integrate it into your daily life.

You will excavate your habitual patterns of thinking that influence your actions/behaviors/emotional cascades and utilize tools from cognitive psychology to

redirect your thoughts and actions.

You will be given tools for working with setbacks and inertia.

We will work realistically understanding that human habit can be a formidable foe and we will be prepared to confront setbacks and road roadblocks with our 

arsenal of psychological and behavior power tools.

If you have questions or concerns I will happily speak with you so don't hesitate to contact me at donnalynnsherman@gmail.com or through the contact option

here and we can set up a time to talk.
