It’s hard to stay on the path of meditation!

And it’s even harder going it alone. So we’ve created this website in hopes of providing you some support, guidance, and overall benefit in relation to your practice of mindfulness. I’ve been practicing mindfulness for about 20 years now, teaching it for 15, (my father taught for over 25 years before me…this is actually our family business!) and I currently teach about 25 Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programs a year in Albuquerque, NM. I teach at the University of New Mexico Center for Life, at the New Mexico Heart Institute, Sandia National Laboratories, and I teach one of the only court mandated mindfulness programs in the country for people getting out of jail after multiple DUI’s. And what I’ve learned from this incredibly diverse group of practitioners is precisely what I hope to share with you here on this website.

You can sign up for our weekly delivery of video teachings delivered straight to your inbox, you can leave comments and questions on any given topic, and you can straight out ask for teachings on anything mindfulness related and I’ll sure do my best to answer them.

Check out some of the videos below  on the topics of Stress Reduction, Sleep Issues, Workplace Stress and Learning How to Meditate to get started.

We hope so so much they bring you benefit!

With tons of love,
Michelle

SLEEP ISSUES
Middle of the Night Meditation

The next best thing to sleep is rest. If you can use this meditation to help you move into a state of rest, you are at least now moving in a good direction. So don't be discouraged if it doesn't put you right to sleep. Use it to put you to rest, and then see what happens.

I hope so much this helps,
