“To stop your mind does not mean to stop the activities of the mind. It means your mind pervades your whole body." - Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Master

"Thank you Jamie for your work, for your journeys from the outside in with physical stepping stones that help me to anchor in and connect with the physicality of my being. It is truly a treasure for me." - Elisabeth, Teacher

2024 Modules 2 & 3

Module 2: Theory and Application

Pre-requisite: Module 1

Module 2 is an online study group in the application and transmission of Embodied Mindfulness practice. The focus of this module is to externalize the inner experience of Embodied Mindfulness into action as well as through language for those who wish to teach. This module can be taken for personal practice or for professional practice.

Module 2 personal practice participants recycle the Module 1 content to deepen practice, attend seminars to expand understanding of the approach, and receive individual coaching for practice applications.

Module 2 teacher track participants receive all of the above, plus peer group feedback to gain confidence in presentation and mastery of the material. Over the course of the teacher track program, you will learn how to:

Find your own language
Gain clarity with directions for guiding
Use your voice mindfully
Pace your rhythm of guiding
Apply these foundational practices to your work
Develop your own unique style
