In an increasingly stressful and complex world, do you feel as though your life is often stuck on “automatic pilot”? Life can seem to swirl by us at the speed of light, leaving us feeling depleted and defeated, a mindless, exhaustive wheel that just seems to spin around and around. Chronic stress leads to a variety of health challenges and also leaves us vulnerable to anxiety, depression and isolation from the people and experiences we love most.
No matter how challenging your circumstances, I am here to offer you hope. Though not meant for everyone as a panacea or cure-all, mindfulness offers a pathway for reclaiming your life and a sense of connectedness with what you most cherish in life.
Choosing to consider the possibility that life could be more joyful and fulfilling is a big step. My intention is to offer you information on this website to learn more about mindfulness based interventions and stress reduction workshops. I also hope you will have a sense of who I am and how I may be of some assistance to you along this path.
Please be in touch with me if you have questions after carefully reading the content of these website pages. You’ll find more information about mindfulness, a short guided audio practice I designed just for you, and details regarding the mindfulness based stress reduction workshop I teach in Traverse City, Michigan.
I also encourage you to sign up for my email newsletter, subscribe to my blog or follow my facebook page. I won’t overwhelm your email inbox, but I do enjoy sharing about mindfulness and health through writing, and these are the best ways for us to stay in touch and to inform you when schedules are set for local and online classes as well as other special events, such as retreats and workshops. Please join our community.
