Engaged Mindfulness Series

Welcome to this 8 week series on engaged mindfulness. Each session can be experienced on its own; however, they are best if experienced in order. The three themes are courage, compassion and connection.

Click on each title to be brought to the written post, which includes both the guided meditations and informal practices.

May this series help you to build and strengthen your mindfulness practice and grow your compassionate heart. Please reach out with questions or to share with me the impact of these practices.
