Amie Summers is a parent, therapist, and mindfulness practitioner. She consults with and trains therapists —and has her own practice working with children, teens, families, and parents. On September 27th, 9am PDT, join us live as Amie shares about her evolving mindfulness journey as a parent and as a professional.
Amie describes her decade-long mindfulness journey as having “many clunky stops and starts.” She’ll share with us the “perfect storm” of recent experiences that has brought her into living more fully with mindfulness as a practice of her everyday, and the impact this has had on her, her family, and the children and families with whom she works.
Amie will share resources she has found to be particularly supportive during her “stops and starts,” as well as reflections on mindfulness and family life - how what seemed like a solo meditation practice has now become an invitation to her children to join in family connection through mindfulness practice. The conversation on the challenge and creativity of adapting mindfulness practice to family, and family to practice, will give hope and encouragement to all of us who engage the process of developing a more mindful and enjoyable life.JOIN US LIVE!
In the third episode of the free Clinical Mindfulness Webinar Series meditation teacher and OI Coach, Brent Morton, talks with host Steve Hoskinson about pleasure in early Buddhist teachings and how it applies today. We hear how this ancient spirituality has empowered people’s joyful living and provided skillful support of others through pleasure and presence.
We didn’t get to finish the conversation at a crucial point: What are some tools we can use to help ourselves with the Five Hindrances? Brent offered to continue our conversation and returned for a second hour of conversation in Buddha's Pleasure Part II: Antidotes to the Five Hindrances, in which he shared tools and practices of counterbalance for the Five Hindrances.WATCH EPISODE 3: PART I & Part II
When it comes to Organic Intelligence® “midwifery” is the most compelling metaphor of our style of accompanying presence. Life is moving in, around and through us. Each moment may become another birth of consciousness for us individually and collectively. With an adept midwife life unfolds most naturally, and especially well in case of complications. Natural, rhythmic cycles of contraction and respite are tended, supported and all held in compassionate embrace. Michelle Borok brings this presence to everything she does. Midwife, fertility guide, teacher, mindfulness practitioner, OI coach, friend… Listen as Michelle shares her perspectives on midwifery, empowerment, healing and mindfulness.WATCH EPISODE 2
Most psychotherapists use some elements of mindfulness in their practice. Both supportive and adverse effects of mindfulness interventions are well documented. By understanding what happens in a mindfulness or meditation practice, and some simple, yet fundamental, neuro-biological principles of human systems, therapists can more skillfully offer these practices to their clients and minimize the potential for adverse effects. In this first of the Clinical Mindfulness Series' free webinars, Robin Craig chats with OI Founder Steve Hoskinson on common misconceptions of mindfulness, adverse effects, and how mindfulness can be 'applied' to boost your effectiveness, heal from burn-out, and benefit those for whom you care.WATCH EPISODE 1
