Zen-at-Home Guided Silent Retreats
Most people are very busy with multiple responsibilities and endless to-do lists. We are a stressed society and many of us could use a day off to relax, rejuvenate, and learn valuable tools to keep the stress at bay. The idea of enjoying a one-day silent meditation retreat sounds inviting but not always practical, with the travel expenses, time away from home and logistics. Zen-at-Home brings the retreat to you!
Host an 8-hour meditation retreat at your own home and invite up to 10 people total. We will take care of the rest.
Living Stress Free® Life Coaching
Sometimes people get stuck in a rut, feel like life lost its purpose, and need some inspiration to create healthy change. LSF Life Coaching is perfect for anyone who is looking to make a change or add a new direction to their life. What makes our life coaching unique is the focus on reality as it is and learning how to accept barriers and challenges with curiosity, allowing for the unknown factors of life to cultivate flexibility and a sense of humor. Often it's ironic to find that the journey is more valuable than the destination.
LSF Counseling/Psychotherapy/Music Therapy
Seeing a therapist is not something that most people explore as a possibility for self-improvement. Therapy is seen as something offered for people who are "crazy" or unable to function in the world. On the contrary, LSF Counseling is for anyone interested in improving their mental health, finding more balance in their life and learning skills that can help lower stress and increase happiness, health, and success. If anxiety or depression is a barrier, LSF Counseling can help release the attachment to thoughts about the past or the future and help people live in the present more fully. Music Therapy is used to decrease stress and learn mindfulness tools.
Yoga Music Therapy Group
Imagine having a place to go one night per week to release your stress, express your thoughts and feelings, learn meditation techniques and completely relax your body. Yoga Music Therapy will give you this opportunity on Wednesday evenings from September 5th to October 24th. It is often the case that people do not have a safe outlet to let go and connect with others for group support. This group affords you a creative opportunity to nourish mind, body, and soul, and make new friends in the process.
Silent Group Meditation Classes
Formerly known as Team Meditation and Mindercise, Silent Group Meditation Class is held once per month for three-month sessions. Silence is becoming a rare commodity that is needed but difficult to access. Spend an evening once per month learning sitting meditation, walking meditation, music-sound meditation, and other stress-reducing techniques for mental wellness. Full instruction and verbal coaching will guide you through the process that you will be able to take home with you as a daily stress management tool.
LSF Meditation Instruction
Have you ever wanted to learn how to meditate after hearing all the amazing benefits for your health, wellness, job performance, creativity, productivity, attentiveness, attitude, and compassion? What usually stops people from learning meditation is the conviction they cannot concentrate, they cannot stop their mind from thinking, they cannot clear the mind, they cannot sit cross-legged on the floor, or it goes against their religious beliefs. LSF Meditation does not require any of these misconceptions. It is non-directive mindfulness meditation that does not require concentration, allows thinking to continue, provides an easy, relaxed posture, and does not conflict with any religion. In fact, it enhances spirituality spontaneously. LSF Meditation Instruction is offered in person in Rochester NY, or through eMeditation anywhere in the world.
