We welcome everyone, but let's face it: not everyone is ready for serious practice.
This is for you if you want to...
- Enrich your life with a way for the benefits of mindfulness to meet you where you are.
- Deepen your work as an educator, counselor, trainer, healer, or just as a plain human.
- Learn a language that meets people where they are across lines of race, class, gender, and can speak to the experiences that your fellow humans are having.
- Develop your mindfulness muscles with renowned and experienced teachers and experts to give you the strength and confidence to flex these techniques anywhere.
- Discover exactly where you meet mindfulness and it meets you.
This is NOT for you if...
- You aren't ready to put time into up-leveling your practice.
- You think "watching videos" will make you an instructor without having a commitment to integrity of your own practice.
- You are using mindfulness to bypass mental health challenges best worked out with the direct support of a professional or healer.
- You want a quick credential.
