As women our gender conditioning trains us to discount our own experience, give our power away to others, strive to be pleasing and perfect, and depend on others for validation and approval.  This habit of “othering” breeds self-doubt, anxiety and depression.  Through mindfulness we learn to relate to our authentic experience with respect and kindness, build self-acceptance and trust in our own authority, and gradually build unshakeable confidence in being our authentic selves.


Foundation Class 

In this 10-session class we will learn the basic principles and methods of mindfulness. We will then apply the practice to the various habits of “othering” in order to restore connection with our trustworthy and wise authentic self.  For new and experienced meditators. Retreat on November 18 is part of this class



Practice Class

For women who've taken the Foundation class and feel confident in understanding the basics of mindfulness practice. In this 9 session class, we'll go deeper into applying the practice to find more freedom from "othering" and to expand and deepen our connection and confidence in being our authentic selves. Includes the Day of Mindfulness retreat on November 18. Choose daytime or evening class. Fee is $180.

The Tuesday afternoon 1:30-3:00pm and evening 6:30-8:00pm classes are full.
