PRACTICES, PROGRAMS & WORKSHOPS

At mindful to a T., I look at mindfulness through an eclectic eye! As a holistic health practitioner/consultant, accomplished artist, author, and a professional speaker/workshop creator and facilitator, I use my training in mindfulness/mind body medicine, the healing arts, and communications along with life experiences to develop and facilitate unique programs, retreats, and workshops that help participants live life more, live life well, live better together through respectful coexistence, and live life anew via self care.

Sample Workshops -

Against the Current is an interactive, mindful exploration of who we are, how we live, & what we need to thrive personally and professionally.

heARTbalms™ is a highly interactive workshop that fuses the creation of art with mindfulness practices to explore how we relate to each other and f foster constructive, healthy exchanges between participants about diversity. Discussions prompted by the creative and mindful processes will open up the dialog to address the topics of unconscious bias, inclusion and coexistence.

Mindful Listening: If mindfulness is being fully present in the moment without judgement or trying to change anything, then mindful listening is being fully present in the moment to connect with someone as they speak in order to hear what is being said without judgement or interruption. This highly interactive and energized session that includes guidance in incorporating mindfulness into a daily routine is great for team building or to help individuals interested in forming better bonds with people on either a professional or personal basis.

Minding You - Caring for the Caregiver: Those serving as caregivers are focused on the wellness of others, often sacrificing their own well-being in the process; you can't pour from an empty cup! This workshop not only helps caregivers develop a plan of effective self-practices to cope with the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual stresses associated with caregiving, it also brings a catharsis through supportive self expression. Minding You is targeted for healthcare providers and those caring for loved ones at bedside or hospice care, or whose loved ones are dealing with life altering health issues. Minding You is delivered as either one-on-one sessions or in a group setting. 

After Care, After Caring®:  This workshop, also offered as a one-on-one session, is an emotional and spiritual cocoon for the caregiver to step into after those cared for have passed on. Self (and group) care and comfort are emphasized as participants are guided through the development and practice of a plan to support them through the grieving process.

Private clients are guided through an integrative practice 1) specific and complementary to their medical treatment plan or diagnosis; 2) to assist with pain management, and/or; 3) for daily wellness after a medical treatment plan is completed. Individualized programs and one-on-one self practices for those caring for loved ones at bedside or in hospice care or whose loved ones are dealing with life altering health issues are offered; I also serve as a pre- and post-surgical coach to help individuals prepare for surgery.

ON MINDFUL SELFISHNESS - THE SELFISH 15 MINUTE REFILL

To keep yourself running on full, take 15! Get up, go out of your office or the home/place in which you work or are giving care to another. If you can go outdoors by all means GO! Leave thoughts of everything and your phone behind; find a comfortable place to sit, stand or recline. Begin taking some mindful breaths staying focused on the inhale and exhale of each moment. Then, as you continue to breath, allow your mind take you to a place you’ve been before or a place you imagine in your mind as long as it’s comforting and peaceful. Involve all of your senses…sight, sound, smell, etc. Be sure to focus on staying in the moment, bringing yourself back to this place in your head by clicking your heels three times (okay, I’m kidding) and repeating (not kidding) right here, right now OR fully present, in this moment as you inhale and exhale. Stay with it and when you’re ready, slowly return to your office or home base. Once there, before getting back to the rest of the day, sit still and take a few more breaths. Practice this exercise with a timer until your body is able to sense how much time has passed. The idea is to be able to spend The Selfish 15 mindfully with limited distractions.
