Summer is here!

I am pleased to be offering UCLA's Mindful Awareness Practices I (MAPs I) six week class.  My next class  starts Thursdays, September 6, through October 11, 2018. This is a 12 hour class that will teach you how to begin a mindfulness meditation practice.  This can also be a wonderful refresher course if  you are stuck in your practice and want some inspiration and offers 12 CEUs as well for professionals. 

The MAPs I class is a pre-requisite for all other MAPs classes that I will be teaching.  I am offering a new six week UCLA MAPs II class in the fall titled "Cultivating Positive Emotions" starting Mondays, October 15 through November 5, 2018.  My four week "When Mindfulness Meets Trauma" class starts  Mondays, September 10 through October 1, 2018 for individuals with PTSD/trauma and clinicians (8 CEUs) to learn about the physiology of trauma and how to gently incorporate mindfulness skills into their lives.

I also offer a Monthly Mindfulness Practice where you can continue to practice in a group and review mindfulness skills.

Every day we have multiple opportunities to be more aware of the life we are living.  When we pay attention to our present moment experience, with curiosity and openness, we open the door to greater aliveness, embodiment and connection with ourselves and others.  This is mindfulness!

As an educator of 30+ years,  a former bodyworker and practicing mental health clinician, I infuse my teaching of mindfulness practices and ethics with "real life" tools and resources, neuroscience and open heartedness.  

I  offer classes and workshops on mindfulness meditation for the beginner to the more advanced practitioner.  In addition, I am planning classes on speciality topics, such as mindfulness practices for those with trauma, mindfulness and difficult emotions and using mindfulness to manage chronic pain.
