Journey Mindfulness is committed to teaching clients how to navigate life throughout happy times and hardships by simply living in the present. Our goal is to share mindfulness and psychotherepeutic interventions with those who desire to elevate their lives- whether you’re a first responder, healthcare or other professional, elite athlete, or working parent trying to balance it all - we’re here to help you find your flow in order to enjoy all of life’s special moments.
“If you can breathe, you can meditate.”
Learn how to cultivate the power of mindfulness to help increase Awareness, Compassion, and Performance. Mindfulness gives us a lens to what is happening now, which is the only time you have to take action. Learning to respond skillfully to the present moment can ground us in the midst of the storms of our lives and help us to bounce back with greater resiliency.

An extraordinary service to the community. Jim has the tools to share with anyone who wants to improve their life. Jim is great with individuals and all types of groups. Jim has been helping me for years and serves with various nonprofits to give back. Highly recommend!
Extremely understanding, encouraging and warm-hearted instructor. His courses + coaching have helped me to overcome the thoughts and emotions that get in the way of pursuing my personal, professional and athletic goals! I can't recommend his programs enough! He has helped me tremendously in leaning on my own understanding and cultivating a self-belief that is true and visceral. Whether for yourself or for someone you love, both MBSR and MPEAK are transformational and unparalleled. DOOOOOO IT!!! :)

Having taken a mindfulness class with Jim, I can attest to his ability to walk his students through learning mindfulness and meditation strategies. He is a calm and empathic presence and a skilled clinician.
If there is still space, I allow new participants to join up through the second meeting. Once the course has met twice, no new participants are brought in; if this has occurred, please contact me for information about the next course time.
In order to get the most out of the course, both regular attendance of the classes and regular work with the material between classes is required. Home practice might take the form of practicing one or more of the mindfulness meditations, or applying mindfulness to daily life situations, for instance, practicing "mindful eating" between classes. Bringing mindfulness to our daily activities does not take any more time than not being mindful of them. Practicing meditations do take time and its important to make this a priority during the class, which may include re-prioritizing your daily activities to find minutes during the day. As someone recently said, "If you have time for Facebook or Twitter, you have time for meditation." Likewise "if you can breathe, you can meditate." Support and ideas for finding time for the home practices is available during the course, however, it will still require your commitment to make this happen, and your own strong determination. The goal is simply to share the teaching to those willing to learn.
