Group Mindfulness Coaching

We live in a world with unprecedented levels of stress and worry. We worry about money, our relationships or our jobs. Often, these worries are based on a past experience that we re-play like a bad song stuck in our heads. Something happens to us in our lives, usually as a child or young adult. In a similar situation later in life, our memories are triggered and our brains instinctively believe that the same thing is going to happen again.

Then we re-live our past over and over. The same patterns tend to occur in our lives until we can change the associations in our brains.

The good news is that we can work past our worries and our stress. The number one best way to do by developing a regular meditation practice.

Before you think "I can't do meditation" or "Meditation doesn't work for me," consider that meditation practice can change your life. It associated with decreased levels of psychological distress, such as less anxiety, anger, depression and worry. Studies have found that the brain actually changes with meditation.

Beginning in March 2019, I will be offering group mindfulness coaching for a small group of people. This is an opportunity to get support from a like-minded group of people and from me who seek to invite peace, quiet and a sense of presence into their lives.

We will meet in a small group 8 times over 2 months, as it takes about this amount of time to create new habits! The series will cover the following topics:

• Breath as Foundation
• Body Scan/Progressive Muscle Relaxation
• Mindfulness of Emotions
• Mindfulness of Thoughts
• Mindful Walking and Stretching
• Working through Resistance
• Working with Energy
• Opening Intuition and Connecting with Higher Guidance

In this program, you will train your brain to let go of attachment to negative thoughts in your everyday life. You will to “re-wire” the cycle of thought chatter and invented stories by practicing letting go of thoughts, focusing on your breath (or a healing phrase/object), and then by practicing just being aware of sensations (sounds, feelings, etc.) in your body or environment and releasing judging them as good/bad/unwanted.

Each gathering will include:

• Individual check-ins
• Individual times for each participant to share about their mindfulness practice and receive coaching guidance from me and from other participants
• Writing tools and handouts specific incorporating “quieting the mind” into daily moments in our lives
• Establishing action steps you intend to take between each session
• Guided meditations each week
• “Accountability/intention partners” to check in with each other in between sessions
• Free 2-month membership in the Soulful Work Community (includes monthly gatherings (virtual or in-person), videos/guided meditations/tools in an online platform, and a private group)

This class will meet for 8 sessions over 2 months starting March 7th on Thursday evenings from 6-7:30 pm. The dates are: March 7, March 14, March 28, April 11, April 18, May 9, May 23 and May 30. We will be meeting at Sage Wellness, 980 Forest Avenue, Suite 204, Portland, Maine.

Class size is limited to 6 people only to ensure personalized attention. Virtual participation is an option!

By the end of the program, you will :

• Have lower levels of stress and anxiety
• Establish a regular, daily meditation practice
• Be able to identify and separate from negative thoughts and emotions
• Have heightened intuition and an enhanced connection with divine guidance
• Enjoy a greater sense of peace, calm and contentment
• Experience transformation rippling over into all areas in your life!

This is a payment plan of $35/week over 8 weeks ($280 total). $30/week for Soulful Work Community members. Join us to create lasting changes in your brain, habits and life!
