Programs for Children
Deborah brings the magic of mindfulness to children as both a Mindfulness Consultant and author of the The Magical Mindful Day. Available for home and school visits, she works with groups and individuals to address everyday concerns and fears and helps children understand how decisions, emotions and actions impact the Earth and every living being. Through art, music, writing, reading and discussion, she enables children to find peace from within.

Compassion Cultivation Training
This 8-week course is designed to develop the qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness for oneself and others. The course, developed by a team of contemplative scholars, clinical psychologists, and researchers at Stanford University in 2009, combines traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and scientific research on compassion. The training includes: guided meditations and visualizations, experiential exercises, group discussion, informal lecturing, scientific research, and home practices geared to strengthen awareness, compassion, and resilience. Each year, Deborah will offer two Compassion Cultivation Trainings, including one free class in the Fall for a non-profit or an organization in need.
