Hot Mess to Cool Oasis in 6 Weeks

Six doable lessons to more calm and less overwhelm

An online course for busy, warm-hearted folks

Learn mindfulness skills to feel better and more peaceful in your busy life, with six lessons of easy to access tools that are simple but profoundly impactful.

You’re super-busy. You don’t want one more thing on your to-do list.

“Doing mindfulness helps me to breathe and think about what I’m going to say next. I haven’t been yelling at my husband as much since I’ve been using it.” – Shondra

This course will benefit you if any of this describes you:

  • You’re someone who’s dealing with a lot on your plate
  • You’ve been through more than your share of heartache.
  • You’ve already done a lot of work to understand yourself, but you need more support
  • You work hard to be a good friend, parent, partner, son or daughter, professional.
  • You want the benefits of mindfulness, but you’re not sure you have the time for it.
  •  You haven’t found a mindfulness group that feels like home
  • You’re a person of color or someone who appreciates the chance to be part of a diverse group of warm wonderful individuals

Testimonials from wonderful, busy folks:

“I had a wonderful and powerful experience with the meditations.” – Susan

“The HEAL mindfulness practice we did was a great culminating practice for the day. It made me go deeper and grapple, more than just relax. It helped me to open up more. Exciting!” – Diana

“I learned a lot about myself in a short time and found nonjudgmental space for myself.”        – Kate

“ This course was an oasis in the middle of my week. I found myself paying attention to how I think about things throughout the week and liked being conscious of paying attention. I felt a lot of peacefulness throughout the week”– Primula

Here’s how the course works:

Each week for six weeks you will receive a lesson that will take about 15 – 20 minutes to digest, that will include video, audio and written parts about bringing mindfulness into your daily life. You can do these and practice between sessions at your own pace.

A few days later, we will have a 45 minute group call to deepen your experience. We’ll see how the practices are going, offer feedback, answer questions and make sure it’s working for YOU. Each lesson contains a combination of talk about the benefits of mindfulness in daily life, along with my favorite and most impactful guided meditations, writing practices and videos designed to help you create an oasis of calm in your busy life and to appeal to your different ways of learning.


But I really don’t have time for this.

This course is designed for busy souls who are juggling a hundred responsibilities. People like you have found they could not only benefit from the course when they first do the practices, but they can continue to find ways to use these skills in their daily lives.

All of the lessons are broken down into short manageable pieces that you can do in your own time. The calls will be recorded so if you can’t make all of them, you can listen later when the time is right for you.  You will discover that the benefits of mindfulness last much longer than the actual minutes spent doing a practice. Your life is too important to not spend a few minutes a day checking in with yourself!
