Are you ready to get serious about living mindfully and intentionally?


Take a deep breath and imagine yourself….

:: Skillfully handling the stressors that come your way with measured responses instead of impulsive reactions

:: Being happier and more optimistic

:: Being able to focus on what you want when you want, and tuning out distractions

:: Sleeping better, feeling better, and being healthier

:: Having stronger relationships with others and being kinder to yourself
:: and living with a lot less stress and anxiety… 

You may be thinking this sounds too good to be true. You may be thinking that life is supposed to be chaotic and crazy-making, and all the stress and overwhelm is just the price you pay for having a full life.

 

But what if that’s actually part of our problem?
 

What if there was a way to DO THE IMPORTANT THINGS WE NEED TO DO EACH DAY AND FEEL AT EASE AND CALM AND PEACEFUL while we do them?
.
.
.
.
Well, guess what? There IS a way... and I am excited to share it with you.

Let me tell you a little about my journey with mindfulness...

Years ago, as a new mother struggling with then-undiagnosed PostPartum Depression, I figured the stress and overwhelm and misery were, well, normal. I figured I could “fake it ‘till I make it,” power through…. and some day, things would get better.

But the things didn’t get better.

What finally DID make things better was GETTING HELP.

And one thing my doctor recommended I do was practice mindfulness.

At first, I thought she was crazy. I have ALLTHETHINGS I have to do and now you want me to find time to DO NOTHING on top of all of this??? 

But I tried it. And continued trying it. 

And OMG IT WAS LIFE-CHANGING.

That doesn't mean there weren't problems...

I had my struggles with:

* being quite certain I was doing it wrong
* resisting the temptation to skip meditating "just this one time because I'm really busy..."
* dealing with ALL THE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS that kept popping up in my head
* feeling uncomfortable or bored or restless or sleepy every time I tried to meditate

Maybe YOU have had some of these struggles, too.

Perhaps you’ve downloaded some meditation apps, or found some cool meditations on YouTube, but it doesn't seem to be working. Because, as helpful as they can be, they can't provide you with a lot of support. A super soothing voice on your phone isn’t going to be able to hold you accountable for practicing, or guide you when problems begin to arise.

You're here because you want to get to the peace and calm and stillness and quiet promised by meditation … but you’re realizing this simple practice isn’t always EASY. 

You’re ready to live in a way that feels EASE-full and intentional. You’re ready to stop overreacting to the little things and start nurturing the important and positive BIG things in your life.

There are LOTS of ways we can cultivate self-growth and awareness, but the one that I have found to be COMPLETELY LIFE-CHANGING IS MINDFULNESS.

Once I started practicing mindfulness consistently, I found the peace and stillness I had been seeking. I could laugh and play and do the stuff I loved with pure joyfulness, AND deal with the difficulties with greater ease.

Mindfulness was so transformative for me I dedicated myself to studying it, and I even completed a 300-hour year-long training program to become a certified mindfulness instructor. I reached a point where I was ready to make THIS -- sharing the gift of mindfulness with others -- my life’s work.

In the last three years, I’ve taught mindfulness to thousands of people, and I can help you too.

What Can a Consistent Mindfulness Practice Do For YOU?
A growing body of research demonstrates that practicing mindfulness can lead to:
decreased emotional reactivity
better sleep, improved immune functioning, and less chronic pain
increased empathy and compassion
increased levels of happiness and optimism
reduced anxiety and depression
improved focus and concentration
Are you thinking, "I want all this, too!"
If you've ever given up on a new habit, or bailed on your New Year's Resolutions, you know that making a change in your life is tough.

You may have all the good intentions in the world to meditate every day and be more present, but soon life intervenes, you get busy, and...
you go back to your stressed-out, overwhelmed, living-on-autopilot ways.


Why does this always seem to happen?
(p.s. you're not the only one!)

 

Whenever we commit to something new, whether it's an exercise program or a diet or meditation, our new habit is vulnerable. 

If we don't have support and guidance, and a deep understanding of how this new practice will be woven into the fabric of our lives, meditation can easily become something we only do "when we feel like it."

 But meditation isn't a "use in case of emergency" practice. If our practice is intermittent, infrequent, or nonexistent, we won't really see any benefit from it. We'll still flip out over the things we know we don't need to flip out over, our stress will build, we'll get caught up in all the busy-ness, and we'll go right back to being overwhelmed, living on auto-pilot, and missing out on our own life!

I don't want that to be your experience!! 

I want to help you make your mindfulness practice an "all-weather system," something you can do consistently, no matter what might try to pull you away from it.

Because when we make time for mindfulness and meditation, THINGS JUST GO A WHOLE LOT BETTER IN OUR LIVES!
 

The Mindful Mastermind Will Support You in Your Mindfulness Practice With Loving Coaching and Community
Mindfulness is one of those things that looks deceptively simple.​​​​​
But when we sit down to actually do it, it can get kinda tricky.

In our always-on, always-busy world, when we shut off all the stimulation for a few minutes, our mind gets bored. Which means it starts wandering, looking for something interesting to occupy itself...which makes us get all annoyed and we convince ourselves we're doing it wrong.

OR we just fall asleep.


For many people, these frustrations lead them to abandon the practice... and they never get to the calm, the optimism, the peace, the balance, the focus, the compassion, the JOY they were seeking.

And that's why I created the Mindful Mastermind!
The Mindful Mastermind will help you avoid the most common problems that can derail your mindfulness practice:

1.
Feeling like you're "doing it wrong"
Mindfulness and meditation are quite unlike most of the things we do during our day because there's no "goal" or outcome to achieve. Ironically, that makes it really HARD for many of us!

In the Mindful Mastermind, you'll get to ask questions, talk about the frustrations you experience with meditation, and get specific guidance for the challenges YOU are facing.
2.
Experiencing unpleasant emotions
When we get quiet, all sorts of stuff can come up. Meditation isn't always happy thoughts and rainbows. Sometimes, deep insecurities, past traumas, or unpleasant memories can arise, and you need a lot more than your breath to be able to handle them.

With the Mindful Mastermind, you'll have a loving community to share these experiences with and help you hold space for the difficult feelings that can emerge. You'll be able to process your emotions instead of pushing them away (which only makes things worse).
3.
Thinking and thinking and thinking...
In meditation, we learn to work with an unruly mind that has become quite addicted to distraction and activity. And that is HARD!

In the Mastermind group, you'll learn skillful ways to work with your thoughts, including the most difficult ones, AND you'll develop a consistent practice with longer meditations to help your monkey mind settle down!
4.
Convincing yourself you don't have the time
Generally, when we have a choice between sitting down and being quiet, or doing pretty much anything else, we opt for "anything else." 

In the Mindful Mastermind, you will make a commitment to daily practice, and you will have a loving group to hold you accountable to your commitment. And we'll help you make the time!
An All-Too-Common Meditator's Journey
In my work as a mindfulness instructor, I meet many people's whose mindfulness journey goes something like this:
 
Let your journey be different!
Don't let the challenges derail you. Embark on your journey with a like-minded group of travellers, and a guide who's been on the path for many years.

Additionally, you will receive a new guided meditation from me each week. These will be developed based on the needs and feedback of the group. We'll start slowly, and build up to 40-minute practice sessions.
Deepen Your Understanding of Mindfulness
No more thinking you're doing it wrong!!
When you register, you'll fill out a short survey indicating your experience with mindfulness and the specific challenges you are facing. Based on this information, I will select a book (or books!) about mindfulness for the group to read together and discuss in an online book club!

Your book(s) will be mailed to you -- you'll learn more about mindfulness, and discuss the book with a like-minded community. OMG it's the best book club EVER!
Deepen Your Self-Nurturing & Self-Care

Make your own wellness a priority 
 
When you make time for yourself, you do amazing things for your mental and physical health. Meditation will help bring a much-needed calm and stillness to your days. You'll be able to connect to what is important to you. You will be more present for the people in your life -- and for YOU!
Deepen Your Connections with Others
Feed your heart & soul with authentic connection
Community is an important part of mindfulness. Through our weekly calls, online discussions, and practice partners, you will develop powerful connections with our Mastermind Group.

These kind souls will support you, cheer for you, share with you, advise you, nurture you, and hold you accountable in your practice.
The Mindful Mastermind is perfect for you if you are:

Frequently-Asked Questions
*
What kind of time commitment is involved?
The formal content of the Mindful Mastermind is about 90 minutes a week (a one-hour call + a weekly lesson). In addition, you are expected to commit to a formal meditation practice each day, which could be 5 minutes or 40 minutes! (You will receive guided meditations to use).

In addition, you will have access to a members-only online forum to write and view posts, and you can choose to have a practice partner. These will give you additional opportunities to connect with our group.

Long answer made short: 90 minutes a week + daily practice + additional participation (forum, book group, etc.)
*
I'm relatively new to mindfulness. Is that okay?
Absolutely! In fact, this is a great way to begin your practice, with lots of support and one-on-one guidance!

When you register, you will immediately gain access to one of my online courses. If you are new to mindfulness, I would recommend Brilliant Mindful YOU, as it is designed specifically for beginners. The sooner you register, the more time you will have to work through the course and begin learning about mindfulness before the Mastermind begins.
*
What qualifies you to teach mindfulness?
I have practiced and studied mindfulness for several years. I currently teach mindfulness to children, teens, and adults. I have been trained in the Mindful Schools curriculum and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and I have completed a 300-hour, year-long training program to become a Mindful Schools Certified Instructor.

I taught high school for 17 years — the many courses I have taught include Psychology and World Religions. Additionally, I write about mindfulness on my popular blog Left Brain Buddha, which has over 25,000 unique visitors each month. As the Executive Director of Brilliant Mindfulness, I teach mindfulness to students, teachers, parents, and children.
*
Is there anyone who shouldn't take this course?
This program isn’t for everyone. Specifically, this program may not be for you if:

- you are looking for a program with a strong religious component (either Buddhist, Christian, or something else)

- you are not willing to put in the time to practice mindfulness on a daily basis

- you are struggling with significant depression or anxiety and are not currently in treatment — if this is the case, I strongly encourage you to contact a mental health provider (this course is not intended to replace therapy or other mental health services)​​​​​​​
*
Can you really learn mindfulness online?
I know, it seems a little high-tech for a low-tech practice! But there is great power in our ability to connect with others from all over the globe in mindfulness practice, even if it is online! During our coaching sessions, we will use an online platform where we can all see and hear each other, which can create a deep level of intimacy and trust.

For many of us, this is the ideal way to learn mindfulness, for we may not have programs in our communities yet, or we may not have the time to attend a class on someone else's schedule.
*
What is your refund and cancellation policy?
I have worked hard to make this the BEST mindfulness coaching program I can. But I understand it may not work for everyone. If, after the first week, you realize that it's just not working for you, email me and you will receive a full refund.

No refunds will be issued after the first week.
*
What if I can't make a group coaching call?
All of the group coaching calls will be recorded and will be available for you to watch at any time.
*
When will we have our one-on-one calls? How do those work?
After you register, I will send you a link to sign up for your one-on-on calls. You will have the opportunity to choose the days and times that we meet. For those calls, we will connect online with Skype or Zoom (so we can see each other) or via phone, which ever you prefer.
*
What if I've already read the book that you pick for the book group?
Just let me know and I'll hand-pick a book for YOU! You can still join in on our conversations about the book the group is reading, and we can chat about your book (if you'd like) during our personal coaching sessions.
*
What information about me will be shared with other members of the Mastermind?
The crucial component of the Mastermind is connecting with other members, but I also understand the need to respect privacy. Your personal information (including your email) will not be shared with other members of the group unless you give me permission to do so. During our coaching sessions, you can choose to access the call via phone, so your name and face will not be visible.

That said, I will encourage everyone to be as open and receptive as possible to engaging with the Mastermind. It is an essential part of your experience!
*
Will this program eliminate all my stress and make me happy all the time?
No. Mindfulness is not a cure-all. It does not eliminate the stressors in our lives. The power of mindfulness comes from learning to live in wise relationship with our thoughts and emotions. Studies indicate that people who practice mindfulness do experience less stress and report greater levels happiness.

​​​​​​​That said, no one is happy all the time, and no one can avoid stressful events! As with many things in life, your mileage with mindfulness may vary. But this program will give you brilliant guidance and direction for the journey! I like to say that mindfulness transforms how we relate to our life — and that’s life-changing!​​​​​​​
*
You didn't answer my question. Can I contact you?
Absolutely! Just click here to send me an email.
