A 6-Week Mindfulness Journey Within
Discover tools and practices to tranform your relationship to your mind!
Over 2,500 years ago, the Buddha described the mind as filled with drunken monkeys, jumping around, screeching, chattering, and carrying on endlessly. Having a bunch of "monkeys" chattering in our heads all day is stressful, isn't it? This constant chatter distracts you from your authentic power, purpose and potential, draining your energy and taking your time.
These disjointed flow of thoughts that fly through our minds during a typical day, can be anything from distracting to truly disruptive. It may include a stream of "I'm not good enough because…” statements, even harsh criticism of everything about our lives, body image, finances, relationships, work, you name it.
However, because most of this goes on below the waterline of our conscious awareness and we've been swimming in this inner climate for so long, it seems "normal." While we are seldom given any space to develop the ability to observe this inner chatter objectively, to question it's accuracy, or to meet it with curiousity, and compassion. This can cause internal conflict and strife. Cultivating a regular Mindfulness practice can support you to create a more peaceful internal environment, so you can move forward in life with more confidence and peace.

Integrative Healing Coach
Hi, I am Adrienne!
As a Certified Mindfulness Educator, I have facilitated countless hours of mindfulness instruction in public schools, with students, parents, school staff, and my surrounding community since 2015.
Having benefited so much from my own 23-year meditative and yogic practice, I naturally felt called to share it with others.
Over the last 30 years, I embarked on an internal, self-healing journey, to come home to myself, where meditation, yoga, and non-violet communication principles played a big part.
I am also a Quantum Life Coach, a yoga teacher, energy healer, transpersonal hypnotherapist and clairvoyant intuitive. I now serve as a tour guide of sorts, sharing my knowledge, wisdom, and experience of the terrain of the soul with other inner voyagers!
