About Mindful Me – 3 sessions/4 progressive modules
This powerful awareness-training program, created by Certified MBSR/Mindfulness Educator, Cassie Schindler, is currently taught on the Silicon Valley campuses of Apple.

Mindful Me is designed to guide, empower and support participants in the skillful cultivation of mindful awareness for personal/professional growth and overall well-being.

Participants receive a total of 8 “playing cards”, distributed throughout the 3 modules. These beautiful cards illustrate core concepts, and outline suggested home practices that reinforce learning, and in turn, create new, healthy behaviors.


Students are asked to bring a journal to record their “in-the-moment” impressions of in-class prompts, as well as challenges or triumphs experienced throughout the retreat (both contribute to group discussion – if appropriate).

Each module includes small and large group discussion, brief didactic, one or more formal meditation practice and plenty of informal methods to bring mindfulness to everyday life.

CATERING  will consist of delicious, simple vegetarian/vegan meals. Please note dietary restrictions in the comments field of the contact form below and feel free to bring (pre-prepared) NON-vegan, protein options that may be stored in your room refrigerator (or the conference room refrigerator).
