This group is free/by donation, designed to be accessible and available to anyone interested.
Drop-In Meditation Group
A chance to sit and practice together, with opportunities for connection, discussion, and Q&A.
Themes will be based on the needs of the participants with a focus on authenticity, self-compassion, dealing with negative thoughts, and finding our own path towards peace amid a chaotic mind.
Open to anyone who is interested, regardless of experience or background. All you need is a relatively stable internet connection. And even then, I will do my best to record and post all meditations online.
We use Zoom for all online courses. It’s free and simple.
I am teaching this course through Embodied Wisdom. For pricing information and to register, please visit Embodied Wisdom’s Event Page.

You are not alone. If you feel like you are sometimes failing as a parent. If you feel like you yell at your kids more than you ever thought you would.
