Example Coaching Itinerary for 6 Sessions

Coaching schedule is personalized based on your needs and goals.

Session 1: Introductions and intentions. In this session we determine our goals, define mindfulness, identify blocks to happiness, and begin our journey of incorporating mindfulness into daily life. 

Session 3: Mindfulness of emotions. We will learn to recognize and befriend emotions through the "RAIN" practice.

Session 5: Compassion for ourselves and others. We will learn the practice of working skillfully with our own and others challenges, increasing a sense of connection, empathy, and care. 

Session 2: Mindfulness of thoughts. We will learn to create a wise relationship with our thoughts so that they work for us and not against us. 

Session 4: Mindfulness and Nature. We will learn to let nature be our guide to the present moment through attention to our senses. 

Session 6: Gladdening the mind and seeing the good in life. We will learn how to shift our attention to what uplifts us using scientifically proven strategies for well being.
