12:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

This program will be conducted via Zoom.

Explore the peace, harmony, and stillness within.

Feeling Stressed? Worried about the future?

Are you looking for happiness outside of yourself?

Want to stay grounded and centered in an ever-changing, chaotic world?

The Challenge
Let’s face it, our world is pretty crazy right now. It feels like it is in turmoil. War, outrage, political polarity, terrorism... the list can seem endless. There are over 7 billion people on our planet. Most of which sleepwalk through life, unaware of the gift the Present Moment brings. Many people feel they are in a constant state of trauma.  Our Minds have been conditioned to:  Relive and regret the past over and over again, suffer because the parts of our lives we love – people, youth, vibrance, etc.– have faded or gone away. Worry about the future, try endlessly to find happiness, success, and self-worth, push away negative thoughts, only to have them cycle back more powerfully than before.

The Solution
What about those who roll with what life brings... who are calm in the midst of chaos?  What magical gifts do they possess? How do you remain grounded and collected in such challenging times?

Enter - The Present Moment
In Mindful Resilience 1, we will explore and apply such practices as: sitting quietly, following our breath, walking meditation, relaxing our body and mind, eating mindful, and practicing easy yoga. These are tools that you can implement into your life to create greater peace, harmony, and stillness within.

Each time you uncover the peace within you, it becomes more natural to access. The tools and practices you learn in our precious time together will easily integrate into your daily life.

Mindful Resilience 2 will be offered on Sunday, November 7, 2021.

Completion of the Mindful Resilience 1 program is required to participate in the Mindful Resilience 2 program.

Maureen Lauer-Gatta, a transformation leader, teacher, and coach, empowers others to empower themselves with practical, insightful and experiential practices based in mindfulness, meditation and yoga through group and 1-on-1 classes and coaching.

Dena DeLuco, a new-thought leader, helps conscious women connect, nurture, and find joy in taking the next step (or quantum leap) on their spiritual path through empowering 1-on-1 coaching and group offerings.
