Healing through mindfulness meditation to cope with the stress of life ... is closer than you think!
This program explores and teaches the life skills everyone needs to learn in order to live, work or study effectively, compassionately & enthusiastically with self-awareness and self-confidence.
The practice of Mindfulness, non-judgmental awareness of one’s experience in the present moment, helps my clients to become self-aware, manage and regulate their own emotions and understand their role within the group and how his or her actions contribute to a group’s success and struggles. They learn to become socially aware, improve their relationship skills and make mindful decisions over time.
30 years of data has proven that regular mindfulness practice is linked to improved attentional ability and emotional self-regulation in adults, fundamental life skills that are critical to working effectively with others.
Mindfulness practices supports our nervous systems. When we do this practice in our community the fabric and culture of our community start to change for better and we will have a more mindful, caring and compassionate community and ultimately mindful society as a whole!

Check out what some of my clients said about this course:
"I have been meditating for the past two years, mostly using guided meditation apps and attending group sessions. Although I benefited from those forms of meditation, it was not until I took a 8 weeks personalized mindful meditation course taught by Gita Nilforoush that my practice became disciplined and I finally learned what mindfulness really means. Gita is an excellent instructor, she made me feel so at ease, and I was looking forward to each meditation course because I knew I would learn yet another important tool to implement into my everyday life. Gita guided me week after week into various mindfulness practices and explained my personal hurdles in a way that made sense to me and I was immediately able to implement her teachings into my daily routine. Honestly, this course helped me more than seeing my therapist, or any other workshop/self improvement practice that I have tried in the past. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to take this course, and I absolutely recommend it to anyone who is looking to improve their current practice or learn to meditate." Sofya V
"Gita’s 8-week meditation course gave me the tools to effectively incorporate mindfulness into my daily challenges. As an experienced meditator, I did not think that meditation courses had much to offer me. However, I did struggle with consistency in my practice, which is arguably the most important component.
Gita took mindfulness down to the bare essentials, which made it easy for me to stay on track with my practice. Now I have a solid regular practice and I owe that to Gita’s simple program. Her relaxing presence was reassuring, helping me to build my daily routine. I still use her mini meditations daily; they are quick and leave me feeling refreshed and ready to attack my day!"
