Raise Your Hand If You...

- Struggle to prioritize your own health

- Believe you're never good enough

-Feel pressured to work and stay productive rather than giving yourself the rest you need

- Get stuck in a self-critical mind loop that never helps the situation and only makes you feel worse

- Fear your self-doubt will limit you from reaching your full potential and enjoying a happy life

- Lash out angrily at loved ones and struggle feeling guilty about it

Now Imagine If...

- you cultivated kindness and compassion for yourself resulting in better health

- you strengthened your mind-body relationship  resulting in better sleep, more energy and focus, greater motivation to care for your body through movement + better food choices

- you now honor and express your emotions in a non-reactive way

-you live with more presence and move through challenges with greater ease

- you befriend your inner-critic and experience more joy, peace, and confidence

- your heart is now open and a new sense of beauty and love are available to you


"Taking MSC was the most transformational experience of my life. Learning to give myself permission to love myself and treat myself with compassion was essential for my physical, emotional and mental health. I took the course twice and will likely take it again."

- Lynda

Hear from one of our past students:

"I had put off taking a mindfulness course because I felt I was too busy. Plus I figured that stress was part of life and I deal with it pretty well. I take good care of myself with a regular workout routine, healthy eating and time with friends. But as I began to prepare for my kids to go off to college and leave the nest, I realized I needed more to deal with this major transition. I took the MBSR course and it literally changed my life, and it did so in simple, beautiful ways. I followed up with the MSC course, which helped me hone what I had learned. The course instructors offered many tools to help me develop a practice that's right for me. I learned to nurture myself and take care of my mental health, which is now part of my everyday life routine. I cannot recommend these courses enough, and I suggest don't wait for the "right" moment. That moment is now."
