Mindfulness Meditation & MBSR in the Shenandoah Valley

3f909365e1563d73a0abe3d48ad26f46Warm greetings; thank you for visiting us, and for your interest in pursuing mindfulness in the Northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. These offerings are available for those new to mindfulness, as well as more experienced practitioners who wish to deepen their practice. All are welcome.

Along with 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) workshops  – offered in partnership with Valley Health’s Integrative Care Program – we offer a variety of Insight (Vipassana) meditation retreats, workshops, and classes throughout the valley and in the greater Washington D.C. area – all designed to help you reduce stress and pain (emotional and physical), and discover more calm, joy, and sense of well-being through the practice of mindfulness.

We also offer tailored meditation workshops and classes for groups and businesses, as well as private coaching sessions for those who wish to explore and deepen their ongoing practice with an experienced teacher.
