Connie’s Mindset

Jack Kornfield goes on to say “A good meditation practice is any one that develops awareness or mindfulness of our body and our senses, of our mind and heart”. 

There are many ways to meditate and Connie believes that it is important that you find what works for you, for your personality and your lifestyle. 

For instance, yoga can be practiced as a moving meditation, which is why her classes typically allow time to remain in poses allowing each individual to connect with their breath and body while bringing awareness and mindfulness to their movements. 

Daily Practices

Developing awareness and mindfulness doesn’t just take place on a cushion.  Mindfulness is also to be practiced in everyday living.  Bringing mindfulness to eating, to communicating, to meetings and even to driving are important to experiencing life at it’s fullest.

Connie really believes that you are either mindful or mindless.  Either present and aware, or lost in thought.

To develop and cultivate presence and awareness meditation is a necessary training.

Connie leads Guided Meditations, Mindfulness Meditations and most importantly does workshops on WHY we meditate.

It’s ability to improve your physical and mental well-being has been scientifically documented – and yet people find it very difficult to actually PRACTICE meditation.

We live in a world that looks for quick results. A meditation practice most likely won’t give instant gratification. It takes time and consistency. Knowing your WHY is important to being willing to keep the practice consistent is one of Connie’s passions.
