Intro Program

Learn Effortless Mindfulness step by step

Learn to unhook from your chattering mind

A “mindful glimpse” is a way of letting go or shifting out of our contracted small mind and into our already awake mind. This allows a natural clarity, freedom and connectedness to emerge. A glimpse from effortless mindfulness heals suffering at the root so it immediately refreshes and reboots our whole body-mind system. Mindful glimpses take from 10 seconds to 10 minutes to do. These can be done with eyes closed or open, anytime during your day.

The goal of mindful glimpses is not just to cultivate or create a temporary calm state or relieve the symptoms of stress but to discover the natural calm and clarity that refreshes and renews us at the core. In deliberate mindfulness we learn to narrow our focus on the breath or the content of consciousness. In effortless mindfulness we begin by opening to the already alert awareness that has a greater capacity to be with our emotions and thoughts. Glimpsing is being mindful from our awake heart mind which, amazingly, is already installed within each of us!

Find the glimpses that work for your learning style

Different mindful glimpses work well for different people. This introductory program allows you to sample a wide variety of glimpses so you can find the ones that work best for you.
