WAKE UP FOR YOUR LIFE !!!
Many people navigate through life on Autopilot - Lost in thought, as if sleep walking from one activity to the next. Mindfulness is anchoring your awareness in the present moment, in an open, accepting and non-judgmental way. By living more in the present moment, you can leave the past behind you, let the future take care of itself and really show up for your life. Through mindful yoga and meditation, we learn to really pay attention to our mind, body, thoughts and feelings and we begin to truly experience the richness of life around us and within us.

This 8 week educational program is an intense learning opportunity and requires real commitment from participants to practice meditation at home every day using CDs and handouts.
In facilitating this course, my intention is to teach people how to take better care of themselves in order to live healthier and more adaptive lives.
This program is periodically being offered in association with Hospice King-Aurora for Hospice clients as well as the general public
