What Will You Get Out of This Class?

As a mental health professional, do you wish you had a regular meditation practice that felt easy, accessible, and gave you results? Do you recommend meditation to your clients, yet struggle with being consistent in your own practice? Are you or your staff starting to show signs of burnout or compassion fatigue? Maybe you have a great personal meditation practice, but need more language to help others open the door into meditation.

If you are new to meditation or looking to refresh your practice, come to this introductory class where we will bust myths about meditation that might be holding you back from experiencing all the benefits.  Meditation done instinctively feels more indulgent than disciplined, keeping you coming back for more.

Learn how to meditate quickly and easily even if you have a racing mind and little spare time. In this practical, embodied Western approach, meditation doesn’t take a lot of time or discipline in order for it to “work.” Gain confidence quickly even as a beginner. In the workshop, you will learn the principals behind instinctive meditation, practice short skills, and then experience a longer guided meditation.

“As a therapist who often utilizes mindfulness with clients, I find Berni’s approach to be especially helpful in working with people who struggle with the practice. Her approach uses a heavy dose of science and realistic expectations to craft a mindfulness practice that is both effective and easily accessible.”  Erin Shadle, LCSW, Director, Behavioral Sleep Solutions, Cognitive -Behavioral Therapy Center of WNC, P.A.
