Hello friends – 
A reminder that I’ll be hosting a course in mindfulness meditation this fall. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is a well researched and scientific approach to cognitive training, helping participants learn to be more aware and present in their daily lives, increase capacities for concentration and creativity and resilience, reduce counter-productive reactive thoughts and behaviors that serve us poorly, and reduce overall stress. Here is a link to a youTube video by the instructor…
Tuition is $425 through Fri 8/28 ($495 after 8/28). I found the course to be extremely valuable, and am glad for the opportunity to take it again and offer it to friends in Bloomington/Normal. The class will be limited to 15 participants meeting in my home on Thursday evenings in September/October from 6-9PM, with a day long retreat (9AM-4PM) on Saturday 10/17. A complete schedule is below, and you can register on the website for Q-4 consulting at this address…
I hope you will consider taking part, and am confident that you will enjoy and benefit from the learnings. Please feel welcome to be in touch if you have any questions, and to share this invitation with others if you are so inclined.
