Learn Mindfulness and Meditation

What if You Could
Make Mindfulness a Habit 
That's Hard to Break?

You can.
Intro to Mindfulness Course
4 Tuesdays, Starting 10 

Do you find yourself stretched, stressed and anxious? Would you like to meditate, but can't find the time, can't "stop" the thoughts or sit "still"? Would you like to move through life more peacefully and with more awareness?

This invitation is for you. 

Whether you are new to meditation, mindfulness or spiritual practice or would like to take your current practice further, this course will meet you where you are at and help you develop your practice in a way that's right for you.

Mindfulness is a big buzz-word these days so it's surprising how it is misunderstood and often practised incorrectly. It is not about holding still, focusing on breathing or pushing away thoughts, trying to be serene or looking like you are. It's much simpler than that! Once you bring mindfulness into your everyday life you'll find greater awareness that leads to more presence and peace, regardless of the situation or circumstance

Probably the best part is that this practice is embedded into everyday life and is geared for active minds and lifestyles. Or maybe the best part is that the January 2023 course is Pay-What-You-Choose!

In the Intro to Mindfulness Course, you'll:

  • Develop a simple mindfulness and meditation practice - on and off the "cushion"
  • Learn when it's appropriate to practice meditation vs. mindfulness 
  • Learn how to make mindfulness part of your daily routine and your daily life
  • Live with greater day to day self-awareness, peace and understanding
  • Lay the foundation and habits to create lasting peace and freedom from stress and anxiety
  • Learn the keys to correct mindfulness that most teachers don't talk about 
  • Automatically start letting go of unhealthy coping and lifestyle habits (I left behind coffee, alcohol, smoking, meat and shopping -- and feel lighter and freer than ever!)
  • View stress and pain from a place of greater understanding, patience and calm
  • Be more present, engaged, productive and happily authentic in your everyday life, no matter what the situation or circumstance.

This program gives you:

  • Four Weekly sessions designed to take you, the beginner or seasoned meditator. through a life-changing journey
  • Mindful reminders with tips and inspiration between sessions
  • Audio talks or readings to support your learning and practice to listen to
  • Personal attention, guidance and coaching, based on your real and practical experience.
This course includes individual guidance and coaching. During this course, I'll teach in the group and work individually with you to clearly identify your practice challenges and support you, to develop and improve your practice -- and your life.

Heartfelt gratitude for this teaching and guidance. You created a safe space for us to learn and build a practice, which I am already seeing serve me well. Looking forward to building on this practice. It is my saving grace on the most difficult days and a welcomed breath of fresh air on good days.

Thanks so much for everything, Salima. I really enjoyed the course, and sharing your beautiful presence and energy. I continue to practice every day. I feel brighter, and my mind less chaotic. I’ve let go of the need to be constantly looking things up on my phone. It’s quite liberating. Thank you so much! I’m excited to continue.
- Anna S., Toronto

I am so grateful to hear that you are offering the recorded course after this month's mindfulness course. Attending class throughout January was the highlight of my week (and helped me through the lockdown). Thank you,
