Ep. 10 - The Places That Scare You + Metta Meditation
In this episode, Deb shares on the book, The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times by Pema Chödrön. This will be the next book in the Peaceful Wellness Mindful Book Group. In the book, Pema Chödrön offers guidance for coping with the difficult moments in our lives--showing us how we can soften our hearts and open us to greater kindness. Deb cites her own protective walls that were built tightly around her from prior abuse, trauma, hurt, betrayal, grief and more. She realized that not only did the walls keep her safe but also it kept others outside. Through practice, she realized how precious her own heart really was. Once the heart is liberated by compassion, we can begin to treat our suffering with gentleness and tenderness. Are you ready to cultivated kindness? Included in this episode is a Metta (Loving-Kindness) meditation. Learn more at peacefulwellness.org and mindfulbookgroup.com

In this episode, Deb looks at the myths and mistaken beliefs around meditation and mindfulness. She discusses the benefits of a mindfulness meditation practice as well as an opportunity to learn with a short practice. When you can be fully aware of the present moment, you are able to release judgments, practice compassion, get out of the auto-pilot mind and its overreactions, and find a sense of calm abiding. Join Deb for the February 28 Days of Insight as she teaches and provides the practice of Insight (also known as Vipassana) Meditation. You can join daily or as often as you like. Additionally, there is an Insight Retreat scheduled on February 26th. Practicing with others, either in a group or private session, can increase your accountability and strengthen your practice.

Ep. 04 - The Heart of Self-Compassion + RAIN Meditation Practice
In this episode, Deb presents the importance of honoring our heart which is the home of our emotions. In Deb's experience, many times she did not know what she was feeling emotion-wise. In her upbringing and those of many others she has worked with, emotions were a message not received and accepted, and mostly denied. To counter this in our present moment experience, we can use a practice titled "RAIN" which can help us to be aware of our heart and to tenderly offer self-compassion. Included in this episode is the "RAIN" Meditation Practice.Join Deb at peacefulwellness.org
