Our programs focus on either the power of mindfulness and meditation, or on understanding the bodymind relationship.
THE UNEXPECTED POWER OF MINDFULNESS & MEDITATION
There is a sanity and brilliance to mindfulness and meditation, from awakening inner strength, kindness and fearlessness to inviting radical change. When the water in a lake is disturbed then the mud rises and we are easily distracted by the turmoil, but when the water is calm then the depths can be seen below. Beneath our dramas and conflicts there is a quiet place; mindfulness invites us to abide in that stillness.
Discover how mindfulness and meditation can transform your life from the inside out. Entering into such a space with others can be profoundly transformative, as we explore together in a caring and supportive environment.

GOING OUT OF YOUR MIND – Why Being In Your Heart Is More Important Than Being In Your Head
As the great Zen master Alan Watts said, We all need to go out of our minds at least once a day.
Both of us have consistently asked ourselves how is it possible to live in this world that appears so challenging with a heart that is open and loving? How do we turn difficult times into caring and forgiveness? The only answer that has come to us is: how can we not?
Going out of your mind means having the courage to release resistance and let love permeate the whole of our being. Only love works; nothing else can bring inner happiness. Once we find our heart we can never lose it! We can shift our attitude from worry, fear and self-absorption to kindness, compassion and generosity.
With deep relaxation, mindfulness and open-heart meditation.
