Mindfulness in the Mess
FINALLY. A science-based mindfulness training that changes lives in 8 weeks!
Discover how mindfulness can make drastically psotive shifts in your physical and mental health. As moms of teens and tweens, we know that life can be crazy. Getting caught up in the busyness of life and our own thoughts and emotions happens quickly. This can cause conflict and strife both in our relationships and in our selves. Mindfulness is a practice that can help us center ourselves and refocus on what really matters to us. It can help instill peace in our hearts and homes. This 8-week course provides an introduction to mindfulness. We will learn what mindfulness is, what it is not and how to practice it.
Research has shown that people who are more mindful are generally happier and report less anxiety, symptoms of depression, anger, and worries. A higher degree of mindfulness is also associated with reduced stress and increased gratitude, hope, and vitality. So if practicing mindfulness holds such powerful potential for our wellbeing, why aren’t we all doing it every day? The reason is often that we need more guidance and support than simply downloading an app. We need to better understand the underlying processes and research behind mindfulness. My new program Mindfulness in the Mess is designed to walk you through everything you need to fully understand mindfulness and experience the profound effects it can have on your life.

What Others Are Saying
“It has helped me see and understand my helpful and unhelpful habitual ways of thinking and behaving, which in turn has helped me respond differently, more kindly and compassionately to myself, others and life’s challenges.”
― Karen Liebenguth, coach, mindfulness trainer
“When we commit ourselves to paying attention in an open way, without falling prey to our own likes and dislikes, opinions and prejudices, projections and expectations, new possibilities open up and we have a chance to free ourselves from the straitjacket of unconsciousness.”
― Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
“Learning about mindfulness taught me what equanimity means, and that’s something I knew that I needed in my life. Now, I’m able to sit with my emotion and turn toward it and accept it. I can see my emotion as a leaf that’s gently floating down a stream past me. Knowing that my negative emotion will eventually pass allows me to embrace it without trying to resist what I’m experiencing in that very moment.”
― Chris Boutté, started practicing mindfulness after being diagnosed with congestive heart failure
How long does this program take to complete?
This is an 8 week program, starting on April 1 and finishing May 20.
What is the format of Mindfulness in the Mess?
We will be gathering via Zoom. However, you will need to have enough space to lie flat during portions of the call, as we do several guided meditations throughout the 8 weeks that require a laying position. So, please keep that in mind when signing up for the course.
How much time do I need to complete the homework exercises? What will that look like?
This training requires about 15 to 30 minutes a day and is most effective when done at home. Different types of exercises include formal meditation and more informal daily practices.
I’ve tried Mindfulness before and I’m not very good at it. How do I know that this program will be different?
At its core, Mindfulness is about starting over again and again. Even if you feel like you’re not making ‘progress’, if you have patience and try to practice regularly to the best of your ability, your efforts will pay off. In this program, we’ll approach mindfulness in a way that addresses all of the common stumbling blocks, and you’ll be free to share your specific concerns so we can troubleshoot them together.
Are the resources in Mindfulness in the Mess based on scientific evidence?
Yes. Over 3,000 peer-reviewed research studies have validated the benefits of mindfulness, and we have made sure that everything in this program is underpinned by rigorous science and references.
What is the cost?
The cost is $375.
