For women curious about a mindfulness-based approach to relating to their experiences. Women typically express an interest in connecting with me from a place of struggle or challenge, or an interest in trying an alternative approach to meeting these difficulties. Prenatally and postpartum, or for the mother of a toddler, this may look like a feeling of lack of clarity or direction, a difficult first pregnancy or birth, anxiety, challenges conceiving, mixed emotions regarding a pregnancy, or confusion regarding career choices in the years following a birth.
My practice extends well beyond the perinatal period and into the years after as women encounter shifting challenges that may look like reconnecting with ones own identity and needs, her role within the home or partnership, emergence or old or new habits, and a myriad of others. With a regular practice we use our pain or struggle as a seed through which we connect to the teachings of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and those on Mindfulness of thoughts, emotions, breath; they become an integral part of our work, as we begin to explore the mind and our thoughts with great curiosity. Our challenges and our reactions to these are our greatest teachers.
Mindfulness Meetings typically look like approximately hour-long sessions, once weekly, in your home. During our meetings we use the specific struggles in your present-day experience as the ground from which we learn and build upon teachings rooted in Mindfulness and Buddhist tradition.
