A Mindfulness Training for Helping the World without Abandoning Ourselves
Enrolling until September 22, 2022
Heal from Burnout with Tools for RESILIENCE:
By developing a Resilience Toolbox of mindfulness practices we can heal the divisions inside ourselves and get back to being part of the solution without hitting burnout in the process.
Move From Self-Judgment to SELF-LOVE:
Train to understand how your Inner Judge blocks healthy self-awareness, making self-management impossible. This one shift helps us slow down, let go, and more easily meet our commitments to ourselves and others.
Join a Community of MINDFUL PEOPLE:
Isolation can lead to overwhelm and confusion about what to do next. Learning mindfulness and resilience tools with the support of a community uncovers our blind spots and keeps us from getting stuck along the way. And it’s way more fun!
Establish a personal practice that nourishes YOU:
This course is designed to help you integrate ancient wisdom streams, modern neuroscience, and emotional intelligence techniques into your daily life, supporting you to develop a personal mindfulness practice designed to fill your cup first.
What is the online program?
Healing the Heart of Service is a 10 week, 20+ Hour hybrid live and pre-recorded course designed to help you develop and deepen your mindfulness practice with the support of a community and a teacher with over 20 years of practice experience.
You will have access to hours of videos, guided meditations, a community forum full of resources, and live group meetings.
Included in the program:
Weekly videos that will walk you through a systematic approach to develop Resilience using mindfulness. Resilience is a teachable skill that has more to do with managing our attitude than our calendar.
Live Calls Weekly
Every week we gather online to share our trials and triumphs in the practice. Ask direct questions and get time saving, clarifying answers. I spent all those years in Monasteries so you don’t have to!
I have been journaling almost every day for the last ten years. I’m not especially disciplined, I was just taught how to journal in a way that is natural, easy, doesn’t take forever, and is undeniably beneficial. Learn how this one tool can help you understand your mind.
Second Body Practice
We can’t do this work alone. Pair up with a partner and check in on a weekly basis. Even just getting a text that says, “I followed the guided meditation today!” can be a huge support, especially if you’re new to mindfulness.
Guided Meditation Recordings
The course includes 4 different Guided Meditations that were created specifically to train you in the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, a teaching that is thousands of years old, and just as relevant today.
Share your experience of each week’s topic with your classmates, connect with other mindful people, and meet a family of experienced Mindfulness Teachers, all on our integrated platform.
Every week will cover a different topic, with short videos, journaling prompts, and guided meditation practices adding up to 30-60 min of work each week. Practicing alone, in pairs, and as a community on a weekly call, we will dive beneath the surface of these teachings and integrate them into our real lives.
