Brett teaches:

Oneness Meditation
Immerse yourself into the realm of being, where you can have a direct experience of oneness that goes beyond judgment and mind. This meditation is deep dive into the present moment, the experience of being. We will use the focus of breath and body sensing to land in the present moment experience, and then go deeper inside as we release thoughts and concerns that take us out of the moment.

Exploring Intuition 
Amplify and refine your intuitive capacity, safely, and avoid common issues such as mistaking projection for intuition. In this class you will learn the power of body sensing to enhance intuitive insights, explore how easily we can project our preconceptions onto others and mistake those projections for intuition, and learn the qualities of intuition that are hallmarks of an insight you can trust.

Intro to Mindfulness 
Curious or frustrated with mindfulness practice? Bring your questions and problems to this class as we’ll spend ½ the class “troubleshooting” people’s experience and answering questions, or giving a teaching point – and the rest in a mindful practice. Practices will include mindful meditation, movement, sound, body sensing, and others as suitable for those in attendance. Specifically intended to help you bring more presence to you moment-to-moment experiences throughout the day with easy-to-adopt, high-impact practices.
