live your life with less stress and more joy

Brilliant Mindful YOU
mindfulness for beginners

six weeks to greater calm, balance, and ease

Do you feel...

stressed out and overwhelmed?

Do you wish you felt...
more in control of your emotions … and your life? 
modern life is stressful
We're  crazybusy.

We run through our days on autopilot, yanked around by our habitual (over)reactions.

We're distracted and forgetful.

We snap at people when we don't mean to.

Our heads are filled with thoughts of all the "to-do"s on our list.

We're anxious for much of the day, and we don't know how to calm down.

At the end of the day, we feel defeated and depleted.

It's almost like we're missing out on our own lives.

We want to present for our one "wild and crazy life," and maybe we tell ourselves we'll do better tomorrow, we'll take some deep breaths...
and then tomorrow it's just more of the same!

What's a modern, stressed-out human to do?
When we practice MINDFULNESS, we learn the absolutely-important-for-human-functioning skills of
being present, calming down,  and
managing our emotions.
You can discover how to do all of that (and more!) in...

and just who am I???

Mindfulness is life-changing.
Let me show you how.
Before I started practicing mindfulness...
... I figured it "wasn't for me."

I had two little kids, a very demanding job, a house to clean, dinner to make . . .
and I had to go to Target.

I wasn't looking for my heart center or a path to nirvana.

I wanted something that would help me manage my stress.
I wanted practical instructions.
I wanted to learn how to use this ancient practice in my very modern life.

So I read a lot of books (a lot!) and I gave it a try.

And you know what happened?

My life started to change!
Not all at once, of course, but slowly, surely... I could see it.

I laughed more.

I smiled more.

 I discovered a new way to relate to all the thoughts in my head and all the chaos in my days.

I found a stillness and ease at the core of my crazybusy life.
Mindfulness is our ability to attend to the present moment, with curiosity and without judgment. It is a powerful tool that transforms how you relate to your own life and how you engage with the world. When we practice mindfulness, we cultivate greater calm, balance, and ease.
And mindfulness is really, really good for you!
a growing body of research continues to reveal the amazing benefits of mindfulness and meditation, including
increased empathy and compassion
decreased emotional reactivity
increased levels of happiness, optimism, and well-being
better sleep, improved immune functioning, and less chronic pain
decreased depression and anxiety
increased focus and concentration
“Throughout this course, mindfulness, for me, has blossomed into patience, tolerance, decreased stress, decreased anxiety, increased sensory reception, and overall happiness, joy, wonder, and focus. It’s amazing what mindfulness can cultivate.”
