This 7-week class will introduce aspects of mindfulness as well as explore meditation to help each of us find more moments of calm, reduce stress/worry and enhance or bring about a greater sense of well being to everyday life.

This program is based, in part, upon the wonderful 8 week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program, MBSR, that was developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Introduced some 30 years ago, it has given rise to well over 700 programs offered worldwide in hospitals, schools, businesses and health care centers.

The Mindful Living class in Goffstown, NH is an exploration of that MBSR program, a “taste” if you will, of what the full 8-week program has to offer. It is an opportunity to learn about mindfulness and meditation in a fun, informal manner that will give everyone a chance to develop some new skills to help tackle problems and feel more at ease with life. 

In addition to teaching this Mindful Living class, I provide meditation instruction, both privately and in class settings. I have over 20 years of personal experience in mindfulness, meditation and yoga. In 2012, I completed the professional teacher-training practicum at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. My much earlier corporate career was in the banking, manufacturing and computer industries  where, in addition to my management/sales/marketing responsibilities,  I taught and developed a myriad of training programs focused on team building and leadership skills.

Please Note: The Mindful Living class is not meant to take the place of the actual, consecutive 8-week MBSR program. It is, however, a great way to learn more about elements of the program, along with several meditation techniques that could enhance your current meditation or mindfulness practices. In addition, if you are or have been a participant of MBSR, this class may help you to refresh your knowledge of its benefits as well.
