Hope & Possibility
It is possible through a mindful exploration of the thoughts & feelings that cause suffering to transform our lives.
"Suffering is our call to attention, our call to investigate the truth of our beliefs."

Sometimes happiness & inner peace can only be attained after great unhappiness - when we are most willing to risk & reach out past our self-restricted boundaries, past our fear and insecurity, taking a leap of faith to become truly significant to ourselves, reclaiming our power & returning to an unshakable sense of self-trust and self-acceptance.
" There is something wonderfully bold & liberating about saying yes to our entire imperfect and messy life. "

My Ageless Mind Therapy Group
This is a life skills workshop with a mindful cognitive approach to improved health, relationships and self-esteem. The intention of this group is learning to live undefended and embracing life more fully. Life is a continual process of growing out of balance and returning to a state of calm. It is perpetual change. But most of us continue to carry our past into our future without creating the change we want.
In these ten weeks, you will learn how to recognize and break past self-limiting beliefs, attitudes & lifestyles and learn how to master inner conflicts with non-judgemental loving acceptance.
Training includes mind-body techniques, mindful meditation and compassion-based communication skills.
The sole qualification for participation in this Group is the sincere desire to:
Build a strong relationship with yourself.
A willingness to trust that strong inner voice that supports you.
Own the power of your thoughts.
Face your fears with courage & excitement.
Learn to create strong boundaries with loving kindness.
Speak your Truth.
It is often in our willingness to explore uncomfortable feelings that we are led to profound insights into the causes of our internal constrictions, stress and the means to release the pain associated with them.
The hidden parts of you - the ones that you are reluctant to let others see -- are the same parts that keep you from fully owning your power and living a life that is fully present.
The only way out of the pain is through the pain.
We will be creating a safe & supportive refuge in which to explore your thoughts & emotions using mindfulness & inquiry to reach a place of awareness where change can happen.
The Mindful Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach is a process that involves developing a different relationship with uncomfortable feelings. The feelings are welcomed rather than resisted, as a gateway to knowing yourself better and knowing what your needs really are. The uncomfortable feelings now become a bridge to guide you along a new path to freedom and resilience.
Living undefended returns you to a place inside yourself, perhaps bigger than yourself, that's comfortable & where you can rest in the knowledge of being able to cope with whatever arises. To be able to come to the place where you can lovingly state: "This is who I am - You can choose to disagree. I won't take it personally." It is a moment to moment awareness of your own needs - separate from the judgement of others. It is a place of fearless intimacy and loving connection.
This is an Ageless Mind.
