Mindfulness has become who I am. I am more focused and no longer pride myself on the ability to multi-task.

Moreover, I have developed a sense of diligence and oneness in each task I do as a solitary task, one that is purposeful not mundane.

Some of the courses I offer:

  • Mindfulness for personal well being
  • Mindful living
  • Mindfulness for teens/children
  • Mindfulness workshops and retreats
  • Mindfulness for stress reduction

"We found that only those trained in meditation stayed on tasks longer and made fewer task switches, as well as reporting less negative emotion after task performance, as compared with the other two groups. In addition, both the meditation and the relaxation groups showed improved memory for the tasks they performed.”
