Wednesdays @ 10-11 AM EST
Instinctive meditation means it’s natural and our bodies are wired to do it easily and efficiently. All we need to do is to set up the right conditions and our bodies will eagerly cooperate. Learn the skill set needed to meditate on your own even if you have a racing mind and little spare time. Come to one or all of the sessions in this drop-in 12-week series hosted through LIVE interactive Zoom sessions. Each week you will learn a new skill or two, practice them in short spurts and then, experience a guided meditation.
Before attending any drop-in classes, we strongly suggest that you watch the recording of the April 22 introductory class (below) if you were unable to attend the live event. This class covers some important concepts around the instinctive approach to meditation and help you develop your meditation skillset during the series.

Wren Cook; Stay-At-Home Mom
"Meditation with Berni has been life-changing in a powerful, yet subtle way. I never thought I was the “meditating type”—too much chatter in my head, not enough time, etc. Berni has taught me that there are no rules in meditation, and she has given me simple skills to mindfully experience small moments of rest and restoration. It’s as simple as giving myself permission to rest and pausing long enough to notice. As a stay-at-home mom, finding any time to myself is challenging. Berni is teaching me how to take a minute here and there, to experience my full range of emotions, and to honor my instincts. I am grateful for Berni’s gifts and guidance!"
Clara Cataldo; Philadelphia, PA
"I entered Berni's presentation having already studied meditation for many years. I was sure that I would not learn anything new - I was thankfully very wrong. Berni's teachings blew me away. In just a few exercises I felt more positive and relaxed than I ever had before. The hope that I could manage a busy life and schedule and still enjoy resting in the beauty of life seemed within reach - in just a few exercises!"
Katie Stadler; Kindergarten Teacher, Alexandria, VA
"Berni helped me learn to trigger the relaxation response just about any time I want to experience it. I look forward to meditation and realize it's something I can do any time of day. I also use this technique with my kindergarten students! They love it, and they even ask me about the kind of meditation we will do next."
Melanie Stanton; EdD, LAT, ATC, Wellness Committee, Head Athletic Trainer, Phys Ed Dept. Chair, St. Stephens and St. Agnes School, Alexandria, VA
“I thought meditation was all about breathing, but I learned it was so much more. Berni helped me, even with a busy schedule, to give myself permission to rest, take some time for myself, re-energize, and feel more ‘in the moment.’”
Marny Hyde; Science Teacher, Tunkhannock, PA
“I learned how to bring meditation into my classroom one minute at a time. My students’ reaction was so positive. I could see and feel the difference this made immediately. Now, this “daily minute” opens and closes our time together and they never let me forget!”
Gena Lengel; Teacher & Writer
“Berni embodies everything you would hope for in a mediation teacher. She is is knowledgeable, encouraging, and supportive. I look forward to every class, and hate to ever miss. I like that Bernie encourages her students to share, and each class, she offers a slightly different approach. The result, however, is always the same–I leave feeling relaxed, refreshed, and renewed. Her class has added a connection and calm to my life that I am so grateful for!”
