Mindfulness is a Mind-Body-Heart training and practice that re-engages your natural human capacity to be fully present in the direct experience of your own life


Vivaldi wrote his most famous work The Four Seasons in the early 1700s. Vivaldi was an innovative artist of music for his time and The Four Seasons became "one of the earliest and most detailed examples of what would come to be called program music—i.e., music with a narrative element." (wikipedia: The Four Seasons) The music will be instantly familiar to you!  

I invite you to sit back, bring your awareness to your natural breath simply coming in and falling out, and take a few minutes to just "be" with Vivaldi's Autumn. 

Fa​ll Song

     Another year gone, leaving everywhere

     its rich spiced residues: vines, leaves,

     the uneaten fruits crumbling damply

     in the shadows, unmattering back

     from the particular island

     of this summer, this NOW, that now is nowhere

     except underfoot, moldering

     in that black subterranean castle

     of unobservable mysteries - roots and sealed seeds

     and the wanderings of water. This

     I try to remember when time's measure

     painfully chafes, for instance when autumn

     flares out at the last, boisterous and like us longing

     to stay - how everything lives, shifting

     from one bright vision to another, forever

     in these momentary pastures.


-  Mary Oliver

The Science of Mindfulness:

LOVING KINDNESS PRACTICE CREATES REAL AND LASTING CHANGES

Mindfulness training and practice are much more than a meditation practice once or twice a day. Our bodies are designed to live fully and spaciously in each moment of our lives - yet our minds are acculturated to live much more in the past and future, often with stress and worry, than we are actually present in our own lives in each present moment.  

Loving Kindness practice is just about everyone's favorite and transformative form of mindfulness meditation and practice. At least eighteen formal studies have demonstrated tremendous benefits specific to Loving Kindness practice in the areas of 

  • Well-being 
  • Healing
  • Emotional intelligence in the brain
  • The stress response
  • Social connection
  • Self-love

Psychology Today summarized the results of eighteen scientific studies specifically focused on studying just this one form of mindfulness practice.

Non-Violent Communication Training in Tallahassee

Communication Solution Intensive

September 27 & 28

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Dr. Cindy Stolls Landis Bigbie

I have the greatest respect for Non-violent Communication training for relationships. It is essential that every one of us learn how to communicate positively, connect authentically, and build co-creative communities that work for all of us. Unfortunately, this is NOT how we were brought up in the modern world. Communication is more disconnecting and broken now than it has ever been. 

 Dr. Cindie Stolls Landis Bigbie, PhD., Certified Non-Violent Communication trainer, has been and continues to be a tireless pioneer for non-violent communication and restorative justice in our community. I have volunteered at the wonderful restorative justice program Cindy and others implemented at the Palmer Monroe Teen Center on the south side of Tallahassee.
