If you landed on this page, you are most likely wanting to learn more about Mindfulness in Conversation and Empathic Connection and Community.

One of the most important things I’ve discovered in my 20+ years of work in this space, is that furthering this kind of learning works best in a learning community.  Developing these skills and responding differently to the challenges in our personal lives and what’s happening in the world takes time and lots of practice and support. I’ve created an online learning community that I hope will provide an environment that does just that. 

The Mindfulness in Conversation online community is organized around learning and practicing in different levels of courses, which include live group video sessions with me, video, audio, and written learning materials However, it is also about meeting, connecting and interacting with others who share your interests and values. There are different ways to be in topic and discussion groups, and coordinate meeting up in person and organizing activities with people who live near you. 

The financial contribution to join the learning community is a monthly subscription of $9.99, which can be cancelled at any time. Once you subscribe, you have full access to the Intro 4 Week Self-Guided Course materials I’ve created, and also weekly 30 minute Live Q&A Group Connection Sessions with me, for as long as you are subscribed. The live sessions happen on the Zoom video conferencing system, and you can also participate by audio only or by phone. I will continue to add to the Self-Guided Course materials over time.
