July 16, 2019Mindfulness: A Bridge to Experiencing Flow

Practicing mindfulness has proven health benefits but what if it could be the doorway into a whole new way of being, one that invites profound and lasting change? What if, in a world that constantly pushes us toward the horizon, we were able to fully focus and immerse ourselves in the moment, here and now? What if this ability, and the subsequent experience, was accessible to everyone? And what if this changes how we experience our world? If this interests you, allow me to introduce you to Flow - a state of consciousness where time melts away and life unfolds ... Read More

May 14, 2019The Benefits of 'Giving' to both the Receiver and the Giver

“Once there was a tree and she loved a boy,” begins Shel Silverstein in his book, The Giving Tree. And as its name suggests, the story is a tale about giving. The tree gives the boy her branches to swing from when he is bored, apples to sell when he needs money. She gives him her branches and trunk when he longs for a house and a boat, and even when she has nothing left to give, she gives her stump to sit on when he is old and tired and still, “the tree was happy.” Probably the first book ...

November 9, 2018Benefits of Mindfulness in the Workplace

Diverse organizations such as Google, Aetna, Intel, the Seattle Seahawks and General Mills all have something in common. All of these companies provide mindfulness training to their employees. Mindfulness is an awareness of the present moment, without judgment—a noticing of what is arising.

July 30, 2018Changing Your Response to Stress

It is no secret that college students today are facing more stress than ever. Between the pressure to do well in school, work, and maintaining relationships, students experience a number of circumstantial and emotional stressors each day. Anxiety disorders have become one of the most common health problems on college campuses. This heightened state of stress makes it hard to focus on tasks such as taking tests and completing projects.

May 2, 2018Students Can Use Mindfulness Techniques during Finals for Focus and Stress Reduction

Finals week is coming and for students that means studying, writing papers, and feeling stressed. In fact, Mental Health America calls it “the most stressful time of the year for college students.” To combat this, students can do the obvious things like exercise to clear their head, eat a well-balanced diet for energy and brain power, and establish a to-do list with priorities.

April 23, 2018Mindfulness in the Workplace

Research has shown that mindfulness in the workplace helps employees manage stress; and improve focus and the ability to work together.  What is mindfulness? Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, non-judgmentally, in the present moment.”  Read More

April 18, 2018Mindfulness, Not a Day at the Spa

In my classes, I often talk about how mindfulness and meditation are not spa-days. People sometimes arrive to a meditation with the expectation that I will make them happy with magic meditative guidance. Apologetically I inform them that this is not the practice of meditation. Read More
