Response Ability
21:09

If you're like most, life feels like it's rapidly spinning out of control.  It's normal to feel anxious, afraid, even angry.

Time to Just DO it
12:51

When we're completely comfortable, we're not growing, we're skating. If we're uncomfortable, but not doing anything to change it, we're surviving, not thriving. Are you ready to push through your fears and have a meaningful, rewarding life?  Then you've got to just do it!

Non-Attachment
14:30

Does your life sometimes feel like a roller coaster ride?  Work's going well, so you feel happy. Then the washing machine breaks and you feel aggravated. The kids are home sick so you may have to call in to work - goodbye feeling great about your job. You find a babysitter - yay! Then the car won't start - boo! Do you have control over your own mind or do your emotions control you? Non-attachment isn't about giving up your worldly possessions (unless you want to) but is all about letting go of our emotions. Join us to find out how to enjoy the freedom that comes from recognizing that our emotions are the same as our thoughts, transitory. They all pass!

Reflections
15:08
Our world is definitely changing but instead of resisting change, why not embrace the changes you can make to improve your life? We can reflect on our experiences and strengthen those that we want to repeat in the new year, while changing those that didn't serve us well. It's the perfect time to do this as we move into the Age of Experience.

How Do You Spend Your Time?
16:08

How do you spend your 1,440 minutes a day? This week, we dive deeper into resistance and focus on how we spend time internally, regardless of what's going on around us. We always choose how we spend our time, but are we conscious of those choices or are we making unconscious choices?

The Blame Game
14:39

When something goes wrong do you look for who to blame or do you take responsibility for your own actions in the situation?  We frequently develop this habit as children, so you might not even be aware that you’re a blamer. But this behavior is destructive for relationships, career ambitions and self-esteem, so join us to explore the blame game.

Jan 21, 2019
The Importance of Meditation
14:42

Coloring, crocheting and apps are only tools to help you become more mindful, they aren't mindfulness itself. You can't get to the inner workings of your mind with crayons. You have to actually do the work, which is meditation.  It's not hard to do, but it's challenging in a world of constant distraction.  Take a few moments to visualize letting go of all of those distractions and connecting with your mind so that you can enjoy total well-being.

Fabulously Imperfect
16:13

The problem with perfectionism is that it doesn’t really exist, so it’s a never-ending struggle that results in frustration, self-reprimand, stress and procrastination. It can make those around us just as miserable as we’re making ourselves. Imperfection is the norm, so it’s how we live with that fact that influences our moment-to-moment well-being and that’s why we practice mindfulness. You can break free of the rigidity of perfectionism.

Mindset on Living
14:11

We all experience a wide variety of events in life, but our mindset determines how we interpret them. If we shift from assuming that life happens TO us, to believing that life happens FOR us, every life event is transformed into a completely different experience.  Are you ready to design a different life by changing your mindset?

168 Hours
17:46

We constantly say “I don’t have time.” But we do have time. We have 168 hours a week. So it’s not that we don’t have time. It’s that we’re not making time for that specific thing we’re talking about.  The challenge isn’t about managing time, it’s about managing priorities, combined with not wasting time on mindless activities we participate in so that we can avoid something we’re uncomfortable with.  You can be more mindful about how you spend your time and how you set your priorities.

The Present of Presence
13:32

Presence is a foundational element of mindfulness.  Being present means living in the current moment, here and now. We spend the majority of our time worrying about something that already happened or worrying about something that could happen.  The past is over and there’s no changing it.  We can't know what the future holds, so we can only make up stories. Why not consider living in the present, where life really happens?

Practicing Gratefulness
11:07
It’s pretty easy to remember to be grateful around Thanksgiving, right? Everyone shares what we’re grateful for, and while we really are grateful, we quickly forget after that day to keep maintaining awareness of what we’re grateful for. Typically, we’re grateful when someone gives us something, or does something for us, but beyond that, most of us don’t give gratitude much thought.
 
Nov 20, 2018
The Foundation of Mindfulness is Self-Awareness
14:35

Do you notice the connection between your emotions and body? We’ll discuss techniques to strengthen your self-awareness and give you an exercise to practice increasing your mind-body connection.
