You are bombarded every day with stresses, distractions and chaos, but within all that you can find inner calm, clarity and focus; you just have to learn to tap into those places. Mindfulness is about slowing down and paying attention to what is happening in the here and now and not letting yourself get lost in your past regrets and worries of the future. Mindfulness teaches you to open your mind and heart in such a way that you are aware of things as they are and can make clearer decisions, respond with care and be more focused and attentive to yourself and those around you.
The Art of the P.A.U.S.E.™ - P.A.U.S.E.™ is a five step mindfulness practice that can be use in a present moment interaction or upset or can be utilized in a deeper more self-reflect practice. The retreats are designed to show you how easily you can access your greatest tool, your mind, for greater peace and possibility in your life at home and at work, and especially in all of your relationships. Please contact me to design a retreat for your next corporate get away, team retreat or conference. The P.A.U.S.E.™ workshop is perfect for sales teams, community leaders, coaches and entrepreneurs.
What you will gain in a P.A.U.S.E.™ retreat :
Personal Growth -
The only person you can change is yourself. THAT'S IT! You are an ever changing being and can get stuck in a cycle of habits, emotional responses and ways of looking at and thinking about things. But if you take the time to open your awareness around what is working in your life and what is not, then you will begin to understand how to make positive changes. WITHOUT JUDGMENT! This workshop will help you raise that awareness and shift your perspective so you can examine yourself and understand how your mind is your control tower. You will understand how to best work with your personality temperaments, access your greatest strengths, gifts and experiences and design the life you want; one of peace, clarity, creativity and joy.
YES, THIS IS POSSIBLE.
Balance in your life -
You are bombarded everyday with challenges at work and at home that throw you out of the present moment and into worry, stress, confusion and frustration. I want to show you simple ways to stay present in each moment; the moment where life is happening and positive action can be taken. Getting lost in your past frustrations or future worries does you no good. My aim is to show you why it's important to be mindful of the present and how by doing this you can make better choices, find more openness for ideas and creativity and feel more at peace and balanced when life is comin' at ya fast.
Ah, here is where you take a deep breath!
Clarity and focus -
Through a variety of meditations and interactive exercises you will begin to understand how your mind works and how to better listen to the wisdom it has for you. With the focus and clarity that comes from a mindfulness practice you learn to positively and compassionately respond to your emotional triggers verses reacting to them with anger, frustration or confusion. This allows you to make clearer decisions and choices in your life and you can literally reshape the way you see your world and focus on more positivity, possibility, expansion and growth.
Now doesn't that sound amazing?

Mindful Photography - We take so many more pictures than we used to because we have a camera at our fingertips, right there in our phones. But are we really looking carefully and seeing the beauty in the everyday things and people in our lives? Looking carefully helps us stay present to the ordinary which builds gratitude, inner peace and respect for the lives we have. The ordinary becomes more extraordinary. This practice helps us feel more content, appreciative and at ease in our lives. I love teaching this workshop to new and advanced photographers as a way to help them be more present for their subjects and to office teams and retreat and student groups as a fun way to practice mindfulness.
