Embodied Mindfulness: Coaching, Mentoring and Group Consulting

Embodied Mindfulness is a practice that releases us from pre-occupation into presence and to be present at any time, and in any place. The practice of kind attention invites a spacious awareness, that in the most difficult and challenging of moments guides us skillfully with kindness, discernment and wisdom and opens into the capacity to absorb and appreciate moments of joy and ease as well.

Embodied Mindfulness Coaching, Mentoring and Consulting is an individual or group approach that culls from the skillful means of mindfulness, meditation and somatic practices. Drawing from over 3 decades of teaching and practice experience, Jill guides clients and students into what might best apply to the conditions of an individual or group setting.

A given session will offer accessible, sane and practical mindfulness, meditation, somatic and compassion enhancing practices to work with whatever is current  — in ones life, profession or community.

Resiliency, self compassion, clarity, emotional intelligence and empathy are a few of the benefits of mindfulness. Happiness and joy,  inner peace and ease are some of the benefits of compassion practices. Waking up to life, re-evaluating and deepening an understanding of what matters and creating intentions are what guide us towards our natural heart of goodness and shared humanity. Together we walk a spiritual path worth taking for ourselves, each other and the world.

 Some of the Benefits of Embodied Mindfulness:

  • Supports the development of a personal and sustainable practice of mindfulness or enhances and re-vitalizes what you already have  
  • Cultivates compassion, emotional intelligence and the capacity to take kind care of yourself and others – at home, and at work

  • Supports the integration of mind/body tools to add to your professional work as a therapist, school teacher, coach, counselor, healthcare provider, mindfulness facilitator, employee, manager
  • Is helpful when working with a (or your) body and mind that might not be at it’s best, with illness, pain, trauma, addictions and or aging
  • Facilitates a clarity of mind that can navigate tough decisions and solve complex problems at work, or at home guided by ethical non harming principles
