Is it time to get serious about learning to meditate? We've made it easy for you. In a 2 hour class you'll receive all the information you need to get going. 

For many years I searched for a simple, intellectual, straightforward method of learning meditation that wasn’t attached to a specific religion or philosophy.  After 30 years of reading, practicing, getting confused, drifting toward and away from my meditation practice I stumbled upon the Simple Easy Every Day Meditation class and said “wow, now this makes sense!”  It felt like it took all the good stuff and made it accessible to any type of learner at any stage of their life and I didn’t have to sit in lotus or wear funny clothes (nothing against funny clothes, they just don’t look good on me).  I knew I had to incorporate this program into my teaching.

This program is ideal for any level - whether you are a beginning meditator, or want to get back on track with meditation. It's true that meditation can help you to find inner peace, creativity, inspiration, harmonious relationships, fulfillment, better health, more self-awareness, and so much more. Each of us has our own reason for wanting to learn to meditate, and whether you want to create mental, physical, or emotional balance, or be more inwardly connected, you'll find this meditation will help you. The mainstay of the program is breath awareness and silent sound meditation, both which direct your attention inward and help you to reconnect with your center point of peace and enhance your well being.

The program includes:
  • An Introduction to several meditation practices and how they work
  • Demystifying the now overly popular buzz word,“Mindfulness”
  • Discovering the Benefits of Meditation
  • Understanding the Effects of Stress
  • Looking at the Brain and how it works on and off meditation
  • The 5 Essentials for a Successful Meditation
  • Easy to use Meditation Techniques
  • Guided Meditation & Personalized Meditation Instruction
  • Creating Your Own Personal Practice

You'll be guided in various ways to meditate, discover the basics of successful meditation, find out what meditation is and what it isn’t, and explore experiences you might have during meditation. You’ll learn a powerful, yet easy meditation method you can use every day. The Simple, Easy, Every Day Meditation Method is perfect for anyone.  And besides that, you will have a ton of fun and walk away with great tools that you can carry around for a lifetime.

 

Individual Coaching

Would you like to experience individual coaching or a class like environment?  The key is “What works for YOU?”  Life is so much easier when we just accept that at this moment, at this time we feel a need for something.  That something might be taking a class and being around other like-minded people or it may feel good to put your oxygen mask on first and not even have anyone around to help or listen to but yourself.  It is not selfish but selfless.   

In an individual session, we can dig into your own questions and concerns about mindfulness and meditation and what it means to you.   We tend to live our lives from the outside in; multiple issues/concerns all going on at the same time that not only become overwhelming and ineffective but they affect how we feel and react.  In individual coaching we can discover how to tap into your calm, wise and intuitive mind to find out the better way to approach life; from the inside out.   

Here is a sample of what an individual coaching session with Alexa consists of: 

  • Discovery session on how meditation can enhance your life based on your current needs.  Perhaps you are dealing with issues such as:

  • The session will end with a guided Meditation and discussion of experiences.

Corporate Affairs

Meditation and mindfulness seem to be the hot buzzwords lately.  It’s come out of the closet and into the limelight but what does that really mean to your company?

It has been on the cover of the Harvard Business Review, National Geographic, Time Magazine and it keeps popping up in every newspaper.  What is all this business about quieting the mind, being more efficient, more focused, healthier and down right happier?  Meditation is no longer a word used for cloaked monks or people who can sit cross-legged for hours, nor is just what is portrayed in the book/movie “Eat, Love, Pray.”

Healthcare costs are skyrocketing and stressed out employees not only affect employee sick time, productivity, creativity and satisfaction issues… it is all connected to a company’s bottom line.  The World Health Organization estimates that stress costs American businesses $300 billion dollars a year.  Work and home are no longer something that must be balanced, they cannot be separated.  

Helping employees manage their minds through meditation and mindfulness is the easiest and cheapest tool you can give your leaders and employees.  The benefits are both personal and professional.  A happier person is always a happier employee.

Over 35% of companies already have mindfulness programs in place! With increasing evidence that these programs help create high functioning teams that are healthier, more productive and engaged, who wouldn't want to add efficiency, better decision making and increased creativity in their company?
