What if you had a practice that you could do anywhere that would help you feel grounded, connected, and deeply loved?
What if you could easily recenter on the days you feel lonely or like a hot mess?
What if meeting yourself right where you are could feel as comfortable as sliding into your slippers at the end of the day?
When I’m not sure what the next step should be,
when my heart feels full,
when I’m moving through the day on autopilot,
when there is simply too much clutter inside me,
when the loneliness taps at my edges,
when the beauty and joy are there but feel inaccessible,
when I think no one else will understand,
I come back to the one practice that always grounds me...
I come back to the mirror meditation.
Come along and get to know the one person who knows you best of all: You.
What is the mirror meditation?
In the simplest terms, it's pausing for a few moments to look at yourself in the mirror.
(Please keep reading even if that thought scares you to the tips of your toes.)
It is also a game-changer when it comes to soul care and creating space to listen to the wisdom within. It has profoundly changed my life.
The mirror meditation is a practice you can do almost anywhere at anytime. In the bathroom at work, in your reflection in a store window, in the car, in your bedroom, when you are on vacation, when you are visiting family.
The mirror meditation paired with using your camera (or phone) to take photos in the quiet spaces in your day is an accessible, daily practice that can help you feel deeply seen and reconnected in the midst of the unpredictability daily life can bring.
But it is also a practice that means getting into your "Inner Excavation" dig site and uncovering pieces of who you are. Deeply connecting with yourself takes work. Finding the quiet spaces and letting yourself just BE in them takes practice.
Before you read on for more juicy info, note that there are just 50 spots available in this course. If you’re ready to register, head over here.
This course is my offering to help you deepen your relationship with yourself while also creating a self-care and mindfulness practice you can do daily.
It includes a a journal I will send you in the mail. You’ll use it throughout the course, so you can really see how this practice supports you (you also have the option to upgrade to a bigger care package).
It includes written, audio, and some video lessons so you can deeply take in what you're learning.
And it includes community during and after to give you the opportunity to share and connect about your experiences.
I know this practice can profoundly enhance your life, and I’ve put several support systems in place to help you integrate it into daily life, so that you give yourself the gift of feeling deeply seen whenever you need it.
Come along for 5 weeks of reminders, community, and connection as you explore the mirror meditation.
Because even as you deeply reconnect with yourself, you don't have to go it alone.
Dates: April 29 - May 31
Your Being Seen experience includes:
* 5 weeks of guidance, stories, gentle reminders, and support through emails Monday - Friday as you practice the mirror meditation. Our first week will be spent gathering as a community and creating space in our days to practice the meditation. The next four weeks will be spent daily practicing the meditation + learning and connecting through the lessons and ideas presented.
* Being Seen: A Mirror Meditation Journal: This is a beautiful professionally designed and printed journal full of prompts with space for you to record your thoughts + add in some printed self-portraits if you’d like throughout your time with your practice. This is the second edition and updated version! The journal will be sent to you in the mail so you can use it during the course.
* Weekly self-portrait photography prompts as another form of the mirror meditation. (This is one of my favorite parts about this course and has been deeply supportive and enriching for the students who’ve taken it previously.)
* Breathing from the Heart: Four of my meditations (that will be downloadable for you to keep forever).
* A few + audio stories/lessons you can download and listen to again and again (including the story of the mirror meditation from The Gift of This Moment).
* Other juicy goodness to inspire you that is NEW to this round of the course: I’ll be sharing weekly poems, sharing about my practice of pulling inspiration/oracle cards as a way of being seen, and sharing about how you can use your Being Seen journal as more of an art journal as you document your experiences.
* An optional Facebook community for connection with others during our time together and for several weeks after the class ends as you continue to work with the meditation.
Care Package Upgrade
You can also add an optional care package upgrade along with your Being Seen journal. It will include:
A Soul Mantras pocket talisman just for this course.
A special Soul Mantras gemstone necklace created and chosen just for you.
A gemstone bundle created just for Being Seen.
And a few other surprises
This is your invitation to give yourself the gift of remembering your soul care needs, your stories, you.
Spots are limited: I have just 50 journals left in my studio, which means there are just 50 spots in this course, and this is the last time I will be teaching it in this form. Registration is open and will close April 25. The course is about half full at this time.
How this course will work
Emails to ground you :: From April 29 through May 30, you will receive letters from me to you in your inbox Monday through Friday. There will be five emails a week; three will be full of juicy sustenance for your journey and include stories, prompts to help you work with the meditation, photography prompts, gentle self-care reminders to keep you grounded throughout the experience, and other good things; two emails will be shorter inspiration + check-ins to encourage you and cheer you on.
Facebook community :: Beginning April 25 through the end of June, we will also gather in an optional Facebook group to share pieces of ourselves and support one another. Here you will be able to connect about your experiences with the mirror meditation, share photographs, and have space held for you as you need it. And this will be a space for you to be gently reminded that you are not alone as you spend time reconnecting with yourself in front of your mirror. Although the class ends mid-May, I continue sharing weekly in the Facebook group through the end of June to continue to support you as you work with this meditation and integrate it into your daily life.

What it the time commitment?
The emails will take a few minutes to read each day, and the rest of the time commitment will truly be up to you. The mirror meditation prompts will take between 1-10 minutes, and it will be up to you if you do them daily or a few times a week. Throughout the course, there will be frequent reminders to check in with yourself and to work with the meditation and other prompts at your pace.
I already have have the journal but want to join you for the class. What do I do?
Get in touch! Just send me an email and let me know when you purchased/received the journal and I will send you an invoice for the cost of the course minus the journal. If you still want to add in the optional care package without the journal, we can do that, too!
I'm intrigued but a bit scared, can you tell me more about the mirror meditation?
The mirror meditation can take many forms and we will explore several during this 5-week online experience. Sometimes I spend just a few seconds in front of the mirror checking in. Other times I create an entire experience around it. Most importantly, I create the quiet space to listen to what I most need, to what I know, to the true stories that rest within me.
Yes, you will be digging deep with this practice. But you won't be alone. And I know it will deepen the relationship you have with yourself, so this digging deeper will be so worth it.
