To form a group of bold individuals who believe that meditation training is an important skill in today’s environment. These participants commit to practice meditation at their own pace daily during the workshop course. The Mindful Warrior workshop is an experiential self-discovery of what meditation is, how it works and why it effects change. While each person faces his or her own unique conditions and obstacles; it is believed that each person has the innate ability to cultivate the skills necessary to address these obstacles successfully. It is hoped that everyone will discover and understand how facing one’s challenges can lead directly to your best opportunity.
In a group setting each individual practices activities of physical, energetic and mental awareness. The group will meet weekly over a 5 week period to develop new habits and skills. Everyone will be asked to practice and journal their mindful action witnessed throughout their day to day activities. Group sharing these experiences each week is where the profound understanding occurs.

Thank you Dan. You have opened my eyes to how I can incorporate meditation and reflection in small ways in my daily life. I do need to work on making time for longer more focused periods of meditation, but I do have hope. Knowing I can easily meditate for 10 mins is a great start. I was also surprised how much we worked muscles, without a lot of movements and positions; by holding and breathing through positions for a longer period of time.

Dan, I want to thank you again, I really found the classes to be valuable. I enjoyed both the yoga, and the meditation exercises; now the challenge is to incorporate them into the other days of the week!

Thanks so much for sharing your time and wisdom with us. It was a really interesting experience, and something I will try and keep up in my personal life. Each time we meditated, it seemed to get a little easier to relax (and the time passed quicker) – the deep breathing is something I now find myself incorporating throughout the day (seems to help with stress). So, again, thank you!
