Meditation Express


This class is taught by:

Terri Kaiser

I was a stay at home mom to 3 beautiful children, and married to a busy ENT surgeon. My life revolved around carpools, meals, laundry and volunteering at their respective schools until suddenly - they all had their own lives, and before I knew it, they were all on their way out of the house. I felt overwhelmed with sadness of time gone by, yet the only real record I had of these past 24 years were pictures and videos. My recollection of things were scattered and took on a dream-like quality. My world was whizzing past me at an incredible rate of speed, and I couldn’t stop it. The more I tried, the dizzier I became. I wanted so badly for someone to hold out their arms and lift me up so that I could get a better view... and now I realize I’m not alone.

Our minds play such an important role in our everyday lives, yet we don’t seem to notice what’s going on around us. Because such a huge portion of our lives is spent inside our own heads, we don’t notice time going by. I wanted to learn how to appreciate every moment - that’s when I started researching Mindfulness Meditation and understanding its benefits. Learning how to just take a moment for myself wasn’t easy, and there are times when it still isn’t. But the difference it’s made in my awareness of myself and the world around me has been amazing. As a person who suffered frequent panic attacks, realizing that I had the ability to not only control them, but stop them in their tracks, was so incredibly freeing - it was a feeling I couldn’t wait to share with others.

I received my Certification for Meditation Instruction through the University of Holistic Theology, and have recently completed an insightful 4-week workshop on Mindfulness Meditation at A Mindfulness Life Center. I am currently enrolled in both Chakra and Mudra classes.

I want you to know that YOU have the ultimate power to heal yourself, to slow your life down by taking a moment to breathe, to listen, to see and to just ‘be’. It’s so important to me that you know how beautiful you are as an individual. My vision is to inspire you to get in touch with who you truly are, your unique qualities, and learn to love yourself, baggage and all.

Brooke's favorite foods are fried chicken, complex salads, pickled anything, and coffee. As a street social worker for 18 years, she appreciates the absurd and nonsensical. She is dedicated to lightening the load of everyday people as they trot through their daily experience.
 

Jennifer Martin

Jennifer is a certified Life Coach specializing in women’s health and wellness. She is a graduate of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program and has been passionate about mindfulness for over fourteen years. After experiencing life altering benefits from her own personal mindfulness practice, Jennifer began teaching mindfulness meditation so that others could also learn to experience the benefits in their own lives.

“When we allow ourselves to release and let go, we return to who we are at the core and we are then able to get a taste of the inner peacefulness that is always there. The more that I practice mindfulness and tap into this inner beauty, the more I want to be in that state throughout my days."

Jennifer grew up in Fairfield, Connecticut and moved to Arizona seven years ago with her husband, their two teenage daughters, and their two miniature dachshunds.

A 30-minute beginning meditation class held in a candlelit room with essential oils and peaceful background music.
 
Focus is on breath awareness, body awareness, and releasing stressful mental patterns.
