"Linda was a guest speaker in a support group that I facilitate for individuals who are newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She guided our group through mindfulness meditations and discussions about their experiences. The group members greatly appreciated her visit! She presented information clearly and guided the meditations calmly and confidently. Several group members felt the immediate effects of a quieter mind and decreased worry and all members enjoyed the experiential learning process. I appreciate Linda for her professionalism and responsiveness and can’t wait to co-facilitate future groups with her! "

"I was initially intimidated by mindfulness and meditation, but Linda made it easy, simple, and approachable. Now, I work with Linda regularly and truly enjoy the benefits that mindfulness has brought to my life."

WHAT MINDFULNESS ISN'T:
Being "happy" all the time. Or calm.
But mindfulness training may indeed lead to those traits.
If we train our minds to gently focus, our bodies to relax, we can experience "being in the moment".
Which is essentially mindfulness in a nutshell.
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
There are a variety of techniques that I teach.
These include: simple yoga poses, stretching, a body scan, and walking/ sitting meditations.
My students report vitality and invigoration after every session.
