Hi, my name is R.J. I am a mindfulness teacher. I work with adults interested in learning mindfulness meditation (moment-to-moment, nonjudgemental awareness) to relieve stress, worry, anxiety, and negative patterns of thinking.

In addition to learning mindfulness practices, I also coach my clients around how to best integrate mindful presence into their everyday lives. Mindfully working with one's own goals and intentions is another key piece to the work I do.

I ask that new clients commit to at least 4 weekly sessions (or biweekly), with the option to continue on an as-needs basis.

A typical session with me includes:
- creating and setting (and reflecting on) personal goals
- learning mindfulness practice, including the theory and science
- discussing ways to integrate mindfulness into your day
- practicing mindfulness meditation together

Meditations I teach:
- mindfulness of breathing/body (including body scan)
- lovingkindness & compassion
- mindfulness of thoughts (noting)
- mindful movement: walking meditation & yoga
- open awareness noting (advanced)
- mindful listening & speaking (informal practice)
- mindful eating (informal practice)

A few benefits from mindfulness practice:
- manage and quell strong emotions
- be more present with others
- more resilience and flexibility with difficult situations
- less reactivity; more thoughtful discernment
- increased kindness and compassion
- increased sustained attention
- improved discipline
- increased contentment, happiness, and overall well-being

Additionally, working with me you also get...
- access to recordings of guided meditations
- the option to text and email me to support you between sessions
- a "pleasant (and unpleasant) moments" calendar to track your progress (optional)

RJ is open, warm hearted and knowledgable. I felt he was able to meet me right where I was in my own experience and broaden my understanding of a variety of meditation practices, from a simple concentration practice, to an open awareness practice to cultivation practices. I would whole heartedly recommend him as a guide and coach.
