If you have practiced mindfulness and are looking for a set of tools that will help you address specific challenges in your life, whether they are physical, psychological, relational or personal challenges, then Transformative Mindfulness can help.

Once a practice of mindfulness begins to slow down and stabilize the mind a lot can come up. As awareness increases the ability to notice more clearly one’s experience arises. This course can help address those challenges mindfully and skillfully. Using mindfulness to notice thoughts, feelings and emotions related to suffering is an essential step to reclaim the power of the mind and body.

Transformative Mindfulness Methods is a specific form of guided receptive meditation that is used to get to the root causes of suffering. In this method we use the following tools to help bring healing and well-being:

  • Train open, focused attention
  • Develop a compassionate stance towards the self and others
  • Cultivate insight through guided visualization
  • Heal and integrate personal insight into your everyday life
