Mindfulness-based practices are proving to be an effective approach for addressing depression and anxiety.  This 8-week class is intended for people who have had one or more episodes of depression or live with anxiety.  You can participate whether or not you are taking medicine or are currently in psychotherapy or have had therapy

in the past.


Each week you will learn new skills to help you change your relationship with anxiety and depression so that they interfere less in your life. Discover that you can live more fully and in the present moment.

Topics:


Awareness and Automatic Pilot

Living in Our Heads

Gathering the Scattered Mind

Recognizing Aversion

Allowing/Letting Be

Thoughts are not Facts

“How Can I Best Take Care of Myself?”

Maintaining and Extending New Learning

“Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose,

in the present moment, non-judgmentally, to things as they are.”

Day of Mindfulness

If you have taken a class, workshop, or have travelled with me, please consider joining the Falling Awake class in this day of guided, silent practice. You can use it as a way to support your current practice or to ignite a practice that has fallen away.

In the darkness of winter, this 6-week class will shine the light of our awareness on the heart’s capacity to identify, accept, and express emotions whether they are pleasant or unpleasant. From that foundation, we will explore compassion and forgiveness for self and others.


We will begin each class with mindfulness meditation. Devoting two weeks to each topic using guided practices, exercises, and inquiry, will help incline us toward these natural capacities of the heart. Familiarity with mindfulness practices highly recommended.

“Mindfulness” is a word we see everywhere these days.  What is it?

How do we practice it?  Please join us for a morning of learning about and experiencing mindfulness first hand while supporting this not-for-profit agency.  No experience necessary.  Everyone welcome!
