Mindfulness is a friendly, non-judging, allowing, moment-to-moment awareness. It is cultivated by purposely paying attention to things we ordinarily never give a moment’s thought to. We settle the mind on a focal point that is decidedly in the here and now, with the goal of experiencing growth in our capacity to be present with clarity and openness.

By regular daily practice, the chattering, unruly mind gradually becomes calmer and clearer. The way our mind works becomes less confusing to us and we begin to understand the habits of the mind that hold us back from happiness and freedom. We become kinder to ourselves and those around us.


Somatic Meditation means “of the body” in contrast to “of the mind” or the psyche. The Soma points us to the raw material of the human body rather than the mind. We connect with the inherent, self-existing wakefulness that is already present within our body itself.

In Somatic Meditation, we meet the body as a coherent intelligence with a point of view, a process with direction, a source of wisdom, and a limitless benevolence. We will see that it holds and “wants” to protect our entire person; and it constantly communicates information, whether about our own innermost journey, about what is ultimately real in this present existence of ours, or about how to handle specific situations in our lives. It is a supremely intelligent dynamism, a living force, a supreme guardian and guide in our own process of living, loving and unfolding.


RAIN Meditation is a powerful spiritual tool for cultivating compassion in the face of difficult emotions, limiting beliefs and conflicts with others.

Through the acronym RAIN (Recognize-Allow-Investigate-Nurture) we can awaken the qualities of mature compassion: an embodied, mindful presence, active caring, and all-inclusive heart.
