Meditation Classes with Special Guest Sarah McLean

The Inner Journey with Guest Sarah McLean

Take a journey into your interior realm. This session will introduce you to mindfulness meditation practices to help cultivate present moment awareness. Living mindfully allows for a deeper, more fulfilling experience of life. This is because the good stuff—your inspiration, feeling love, wonderful experiences, the power of choice, connecting to others, and the freedom to be who you are—is revealed and savored in the present moment. Though life unfolds in the present, the mind frequently travels into the past and the future. This inability to pay attention to what matters most to you can distract you from important moments of your life. Explore easy ways to create personal moments of sanctuary to maintain your inner peace.

Be Kind to You with Guest Sarah McLean

Most people know how easy it is be kind to those we care about—yet we can find it difficult to treat ourselves with the same care. The Western culture teaches us that self-criticism and being hard on yourself is the way to motivate yourself, and that competition with self and others is the pathway to self-esteem. In this session you’ll re-learn the essential skill of being supportive toward yourself, and you’ll find increased wellbeing, motivation, and resilience.

Getting Out of Your Own Way with Guest Sarah McLean

Discover new ways to be kinder to yourself by incorporating a more self-honoring internal dialogue.  With mindfulness as a way of being, you’ll being to become more aware of your inner dialogue and may discover habits of mind that keep you stuck and stressed, such as comparing yourself to others and negative self-talk. You’ll learn a tool that will keep you from falling back into old, patterns that limit you: a simple self-inquiry process to help you get unstuck from beliefs so you can be empowered to move forward to manifest your desires. You’ll also develop affirmations that will replace the beliefs that hold you back and be guided into a modern version of an ancient compassion meditation practice which will reveal to you how you can best love yourself as well as others.
