Quieting The Mind Through Living Mindfully
A Women's Group Celebrating The Beauty Of Being Human
Innate in our being human is the desire to be at peace, feel happy, whole, and live from our full potential. Often the capacity to see and be our essential nature is veiled by limiting thoughts, beliefs, fears and emotions. Through simple mindfulness practices, we can increase awareness, gain skills, and see options that allow us to be more accepting and loving of ourselves and others.
This women's process group is a very supportive environment to explore and inquire into these beliefs and self limiting stories, and embrace all aspects of the beauty of being human. This creates an opening for transforming our patterns and to living a rich, full life with purpose, passion, and sharing of our unique gifts with one another.
Do you want more joy and peace in your life? I invite you on this journey!
