Mindfulness Meditation

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 Advanced Yoga Nidra Certification through the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts/Amrit Yoga Institute. I also LOVE the benefits of Sound Healing, and have recently completed the first in a series of Gong and Singing Bowl workshops.

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.

Katherine Ryan

Katherine is certified to lead group or private sessions in both Qigong and Tai Chi including the practice areas of ~ meditation, mindfulness, affirmation, visualization, guided imagery, deep relaxation, progressive relaxation, breathing practices and gentle movement.

Sessions are designed to facilitate and engage the relaxation response, thereby maximizing benefits to body, mind and spirit. Qigong practices are rooted in the Chinese Medical Style also known as Healing Qigong. Tai Chi practices are rooted in the simplified, non-lineage format of traditional Tai Chi and performed in Single Form or Temple Style. This style embraces the repetition of movements (rather than sequential movements as performed in short and long form traditions) as an enhanced pathway to cultivating the awareness and flow of Qi / Chi ~ that healing, living energy that exists within us all.

Katherine is truly grateful that some of her best moments in life are spent in the company of her (undoubtedly fully enlightened) canine companion, Bodhi…she also thinks strands of little white lights make everything better…they just do.
