Contemplative Practices

So much to report! The new Meditation Incubator class is almost ready to launch – so excited. Putting the finishing touches on the site this month.  It’s 10 weeks with over 33 meditations and visualizations applied to deepening creativity and creating a life/career plan. Here is the course outline:

Course Outline – At a Glance   Meditation Incubator – Creative Mind Business Mind

Over the last year and a half I’ve received a total of 326 applications to participate and accepted 200 into the program I run at Pratt Institute.

Summary of our survey data for participants in the SP14, FA 14, SP15:

On average 91 % of participants continue to meditate and visualize after the class.

As a result of practicing meditation and visualization participants who attended each session and finished the course experienced:

100% feel less stressed

100% greater clarity of mind

100% feel more creative

100 % feel more directed in their career and job search

100% feel more able to set goals and take action steps

100% feel learning to meditate and visualize has been a valuable part of this course

This year I’m offering the online course to the public for the first time – from my living room to wordpress.  I’ve worked on it looking forward to sharing.

And this weekend I head up to Smith College for the Summer Session on Contemplative Pedagogy, August 27, 2015, with over 140 educators sponsored by The Association for Contemplative Mind in Higher Education (ACMHE).
