In a world that demands more and more of our attention, learn how to tune inward and work with your mind, body and emotions to cultivate presence; a process that neuroscientists now demonstrate can rewire and heal the brain.
Mindfulness Meditation has been shown to aid in the reduction of stress, anxiety, and depression, while increasing self-awareness, resilience, creativity and empathy. The habit of distraction is epidemic in our competitive, multi-tasking culture; keeping us from the joy of simply being. 90-minute sessions will explore a discussion topic, mindfulness skills, group sharing and two guided meditations.
Rediscover your innate capacity for presence and inner peace regardless of life’s circumstances.
All levels welcome, beginners encouraged to start your practice! Send me an email to be added to one of the groups (or both).
What people say...
"Through Kim’s classes, I am learning to pay attention to both the outer and the inner world. Learning to understand my inner reactions to the outer world is helping me to live with less stress, understand and manage emotions, especially anger, more effectively, and to love what is present with more compassion, understanding, and a lighter heart." Neal K.
"Mindfulness Meditation has changed my life. Kim teaches participants about what is happening in our brain and bodies and how to become more aware of our reactions. Our mindfulness practices are targeted towards different topics each week. Kim brings these topics alive through discussion, short video clips, poems, teachings, and reflection. Members of Kim’s class have utilized mindfulness to improve stress, anxiety, PTSD symptoms, depression, and grief. Everyone feels comfortable sharing reflections as the guidelines for class create a respectful, non-judgmental, and caring listening environment." Lynn L.
Kim invites us on a journey of investigation of the self. She helps us discover and cultivate a space of curious engagement from which we can learn to distinguish what seems to be from what truly is, what is manufactured from what is authentic, what is conditioned from what is present. She holds a space of sincerity while we learn to hold space for ourselves, each other, and ultimately connect in shared experience from a place of natural knowing. Mindfulness meditation is undoubtedly a transformative experience, but sharing the practice with Kim gives the gift of a warm, bright light along the path to being. Mitra S.
