Mindful awareness is for anyone wishing peace of mind.

Mindfulness is so much more than a way to calm your mind. It gives you proven tools for gaining mastery over the most challenging aspects of your life — difficult health conditions (including depression, sleeplessness, eating disorders and high blood sugar), workplace anxiety and stress, and problems like uncontrolled anger that send relationships into a tailspin. That’s why mindfulness meditation is one of the hottest health trends of 2017, and you’ve probably seen reports on the mindfulness revolution and its scientifically proven benefits all over the media, including special editions of Time Magazine and Yoga Journal

Come and join the revolution! In this 4-week class with Dr. Bill Epperly you’ll learn powerful practices that will help you gain mastery over your life. Each week you’ll learn new mindfulness tools for working with the big four areas of life:

  1. Mindfulness of the self. You’ll learn tools for conquering anxiety, worry, depression, and anger, and how to finally gain mastery over repetitive troubling thoughts and emotions.
  2. Mindfulness of the body. You’ll learn proven techniques for working with pain, food issues, sleeplessness, and other physical challenges.
  3. Mindful relationships. How often have thoughtless, angry words torpedoed your relationship? You will learn techniques for mindful speaking, mindful listening, and compassion fatigue (aka burnout). You might consider taking this class with your partner!
  4. Mindful approaches to work that bring the self into greater harmony and fulfillment

Each class will include presentations of new ideas and mindfulness practices, group practice time to increase your understanding of the tools and build your confidence in using them, and group sharing time, to share insights and learn from your classmates.

No prior experience with mindfulness or meditation is required.  Please wear comfortable clothing suitable for light stretching and meditation while lying down. Yoga mats will be provided.

Spirit Group: Supporting Spiritual Growth and Awakening

Meets the 3rd Sunday of every month, from 12noon to 3pm. Andersonville, Chicago, IL.iStock_000020299712XSmall

At a certain point, we become interested in deepening our spiritual lives. We hear the call from our deeper selves, our True Self, and we decide to dive in. I coach many people on their spiritual lives individually, but there is always something especially rich about working with a group. In this group, you will learn meditations and other practices to accelerate your spiritual unfolding. And you’ll be invited to share your path with others in sacred space. People tell me that they gain from their shares, the feedback they receive, and by listening to the shares of the other group members. It’s a great way to catalyze your ongoing awakening. Contact me for more information. $20 donation suggested/session.

 

Mindfulness and Embodiment Group

Forming soon. Dates TBA
Pre-registration is required for this program.

You’ll learn powerful meditations and easy qi gong exercises that release the blockages held in body & mind, allowing you to more fully engage with life in the moment. Learn to relax into the now and release your resistance to living the life of your dreams. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. Contact me for more information. Registration is required. $25/session or buy 6 sessions for $125.

 

Exploring the “We-Space:” the Mysticism of Group Experience

Dates and location, TBA.

There is an energy about us, something we intuitively sense all the time but seldom stop to explore. In this workshop, you will explore the felt-experience of being with others in groups and pairs. We’ll explore the extraordinary potential for experiencing the Divine in each other through dialogue, mindful relating, and contemplative group exercises. I’m sure that you are going to love discovering new ways to make relationships of all kinds part of your spiritual path. Some experience with silent, contemplative prayer and/or meditation is required. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. Contact me today for more information.

At a certain point, we become interested in deepening our spiritual lives. We hear the call from our deeper selves, our True Self, and we decide to dive in. I coach many people on their spiritual lives individually, but there is always something especially rich about working with a group. In this group, you will learn meditations and other practices to accelerate your spiritual unfolding. And you’ll be invited to share your path with others in sacred space. People tell me that they gain both from their shares, the feedback they receive, and by listening to the shares of the other group members. It’s a great way to catalyze your ongoing awakening. The online format means you can meet from the comfort of your home. Meeting by Skype on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. Contact me for more information. The group is limited to four individuals. $25/session.
