JUNE MINDFULNESS SERIES: HOW TO NAVIGATE THE NEW
Due to many requests from our attendees, we are thrilled to extend our Zoom mindfulness webinars, complimentary to our Mohonk family! Nina is delighted to add additional sessions in June, as we continue our preparations to reopen the Mountain House on June 15.
Join Nina for these June sessions to enhance your skills and deepen the neural path you’ve been building for mindfulness. Along with breathing, body scans, compassion, and gratitude exercises, we’ll explore how understanding the concept of “Both / And” can open our hearts and minds to the spaciousness of each moment.

PAST MINDFULNESS WEBINAR RECORDINGS
Mindfulness in Minutes: Enhancing Resilience
Before registering for our Mindfulness in May webinar series, please use following recording of Nina’s introductory session, to develop a basis familiarity with Nina’s mindfulness series.
Relationship to Self: Discovering Opportunities for Insight and Compassion
Minds like to judge things, events, people – and that includes judging ourselves! In fact, we can sometimes be harder on ourselves than we’d be on anyone else.
Learning to listen mindfully and with compassion to the voice in your head can help open your heart – to yourself.
Relationship to Others: Mindfulness While You’re Sheltering at Home
Throughout the day, we may be interacting with spouse/ partner and children, communicating with friends, extended family, colleagues, and trying to find a moment for ourselves.
Discover how a mindful approach to interactions can lead to more skillful relationships.
Mindful Eating / Mindful Drinking: The Simplicity of Self Care
Learning to make skillful choices regarding food and drink can be simple, if we allow it to be. Moment-to-moment awareness paired with curiosity and some simple self-questions can help you work towards lasting change.
Exploring a Mindful Approach to Uncertainty
Calling these times “uncertain” barely begins to describe the layers of thoughts and feelings that can arise at any moment.
Developing a practice mindfulness meditation to learn a way to clear the mind and calm the body again and again, as needed, as wanted.
