These four key areas of mindfulness empower us to be attentive to our thoughts, feelings and the environment with clarity and discernment. These skills help us to make mindful choices and act in ways that are in alignment with our values—choices that are both healthy and beneficial to ourselves and to those around us. When we live mindfully, we are able to cultivate more inner peace, resiliency, genuine well-being and, ultimately, live the life we find most meaningful. We can become the person we choose to be instead of a prisoner of our habits, tendencies, and unconscious conditioning.

A wonderful course. Very thought provoking and a great exercise in examining what’s important in your life. Gave me some good tools to continue to grow into a more meaningful life!  -Amy Ward

This course has helped me live more consciously in this interesting pandemic period of our world. Huge gratitude to Deborah and the mindful life community. Thank you!  – Sarah Hansen

I couldn’t have been more satisfied with this experience, honestly. I feel like I redirected the path of my life.  I can’t say enough kind words about my Teacher Deborah, as she was supportive, but also willing to share her story and give specific examples, which helped humanize her. She was non-judgemental, very committed to her practice. Deborah is very organized and an excellent role model. -Jesse Hutt

For some time I had been interested in a mindfulness/meditation course for many years but just not invested the time in myself until this course which I found very interesting and resulted in my changing many of the way I think, react and notice habits.  I continue to use my new skills as the COVID19 crisis has escalated, along with general life challenges.   I feel The Four Keys of Mindfulness are something that has made navigating daily life much easier and the program has provided me with many concrete tools.   Deborah is wonderful as a facilitator. She is always kind and available for any questions during or after the program.   You won’t be disappointed, in fact, the program is something that can be life changing. -Carlan Maynes
