1.8.16 Meditation; Nancy Griffis, Licensed Heartmath Mentor

The Institute of HeartMath is an internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization that focuses it’s research efforts on how we can skillfully anchor our minds in our hearts, to facilitate a place of well-being in the body researchers refer to as “coherence.”  We have been fortunate to receive permission to use one of their evidence based techniques, Heart Lock-In®, for the Albany Peace Project.  Today’s meditation leader, Nancy Griffis, is an Institute of Heartmath Licensed Mentor, certifying that she has completed training in all of the evidence based protocols offered through the Institute of Heartmath.

I love working with Nancy because she really embraces the concept of “physiology first,” which means, if we really want to manage our emotions, the first place to start is with managing our own nervous system.  After we have our stress response quelled, then we can more skillfully work to resolve any residual negative emotions.

Nancy is demonstrating this work in action, as she discusses how years of training in these skills has prepared her to manage her husband’s terminal illness with grace and presence.

How Do We Love…Well?????    (It may not be what you think)
James Peterson, LCSW-R, Founder True Heart Path
Wednesday January 13 at 7:00 PM
Unity Church of Albany

Have you ever regretted how you ended a relationship wishing you had not taken certain things for granted?
Has someone who means a lot to you ever hurt you deeply by an offhanded comment?
If you were to die tomorrow, would you you be remembered by your deep love for those around you…or something else?

We would be well advised to keep these questions fresh in our mind.  At the end of our lives, we will review our choices, and how well we loved will be the most important questions we ask ourselves.    Unfortunately, these questions are often forgotten as we strive to meet the urgency of life’s daily demands.  But, in this class, James Peterson, LMSW-C, will remind us how important it is that we not only love…. but love well. 

What does it mean to love ourselves and others well?

Even more importantly, what keeps us from loving?

James created the True Heart Path Program to help people come back into alignment with what he calls, their “true heart.”  The True Heart is what resides underneath so many of our actions, however it’s expression gets obscured through life’s demands and challenges.  James reminds people of their deepest wisdom as he adeptly guides them back to their greatest teacher, the teacher within of the True Heart.

James guides people to see all of our circumstances as opportunities to release from what no longer serves us and discover true peace within.

See how you can learn to add more power and beauty into your moment to moment existence to help make your life and our world a better place for peace and love to prosper.

Mindfulness For Busy People
Anne-Marie Serre, IT Specialist/Corporate Meditation Leader
Wednesday January 20 at 7:00 PM, Unity Church of Albany

This session will help you apply the transformative power of mindfulness to your busy life, helping you find the coherent calm space within you, as you focus yourself for whatever challenges you face.

Mindfulness is not mystical or magical, it is actually somewhat methodical.  There are basic techniques you can use to broaden your perceptions at any moment, which enables you to resource a much broader palette of elevated feelings, including greater joy, clarity and sustained well-being.

As an IT consultant, Anne-Marie Serre, has had to hone her ability to stay calm under pressure.  In this talk, she will share the best mindfulness techniques she has cherry picked to help us work gracefully under periods of intense stress.  She will discuss how mindfulness techniques do not actually take any “time” at all, because brief periods of mindfulness actually improves focus, energy, efficiency and creativity all which yield greater results in less time.

Programs are held weekly at Unity Church of Albany, 21 King Ave, Albany
