EXPLORING YOUR OWN NATURE
We teach a secular type of meditation known as mindfulness. Defining mindfulness is challenging because it is experiential, and we each relate to our experiences through different world views, beliefs, values and desires.
So here are just some of the benefits we've experienced from practicing and teaching mindfulness.
Restored Ability to Cope
In practice, we think of mindfulness as learning to passively observe our inner workings, while gaining insights into our automatic thoughts, assumptions, judgments and expectations. Overtime, we learn to dissociate from the thoughts that don't serve us, and relate to ourselves as whole and complete.

If mindfulness is the passive observation of your inner workings (in a nutshell), then values work is a more active way of discovering your inner-self, through the practice of identifying your personal values and creating a lifestyle around them. Values work is also experiential, so here are just some of the ways our clients report shifting in their own awareness:
- from overwhelmed to overjoyed
- from confused to inspired
- from stuck to free
- from unheard to empowered
- from self-destructive to self-honoring
- from directionless to fulfilled
- from frustrated to peaceful
- from angry to warrior
- from unloved to cherished
In a short period of reflection, we can transcend the "truths" and standards others set for us (knowingly and unknowingly) and begin to define our lives to our own standards, honor our own values and create a life that reflects our own personal truths.
