Workshops and Presentations
This 2 hour workshop will teach and explore how to welcome the experience of a broken heart and is intended for anyone who has ever experienced loss. Understanding that the heart is on its own timeline for healing. I will be leading this workshop with Yoga Garden SF teacher Meredith Holt who will guide a gentle flow and restorative poses to release stagnant energy in the body and facilitate emotional healing. I will be teaching practical techniques of mindfulness practice that will deepen your sense of self-compassion, self-forgiveness, and inner trust.
This workshop will hold space for the confused, disoriented, and fragile parts of you that long for repair and inner healing. Together we will explore how meditation, yoga, and psychology can facilitate a space of learning and growth.
I offer presentations and workshops on mindfulness meditation and well-being to groups, organizations, and corporations in the Bay Area.
Mindfulness Based Self-Compassion 8-week Program
This program has been adapted from the UCSF course I developed for the Faculty and Staff Assistance program in 2017 that was offered to Faculty, Staff, and Clinical Residents. This 8-week mindfulness based self-compassion course was developed to foster self-awareness, self-acceptance, healing, and growth. In this program you will learn tools that facilitate in an increased ability to allow difficult emotions and provide self-soothing techniques during moments of inner chaos. Through practice, planting these seeds of mindfulness and self-compassion can result in the healing of old self-defeating patterns such as self-criticism, blame, and shame. Overtime, and with the support of a group, the subtler qualities of self-compassion, wisdom, and inner stability can emerge through concentrated mindfulness practices.
