Start this new and unusual school year by consciously creating your life to match your authentic self. A chance to find support with other travelers on the path who are asking similar questions. Try a variety of mindfulness practices and experiment with integrating them into your daily life.
We will explore the following themes:

• Develop a mindful, compassionate definition of success
• How to work with weaknesses and difficult emotions such as fear, loneliness, frustration or uncertainty

The course includes weekly 50 minute zoom workshops with interactive group exercises, self-awareness and mindfulness practices to try at home, and a meeting with a staff coach. You will be guided in practicing daily mindfulness exercises in your own time and submit a short weekly reflection about your experiences of these exercises.
