“It’s amazing what just one minute can do. I felt the stress leaving my body…”

Live in the moment.

Your ability to create an extraordinary life and to discover the best version of yourself – balanced, resilient, loving, and happy – begins right here, in this moment. 

Mindfulness helps you slow down, quiet the noise, feel a sense of wonder and peace, and make space for what matters most.

It’s all there underneath the hustle. When you pause, you’ll find it. 


Meditation can be practiced anywhere, but it's powerful to experience with a group.


We've created a peaceful and welcoming space in the heart of Portland where you can learn to meditate and deepen your practice with an inspiring community.


We look forward to sharing this journey with you.

I always leave here feeling better than when I walked in. It's my little 'reset' button.

Making peace with the present moment is key.

Feel free to linger on positive notes.

Allow them to fill you with hope.

Now move forward.


Make it a priority to release negative moments.

Forgive. It’s over. Let go.

“Perfect” is a perception and does not exist.

Accept that everything is as it should be.

Realize that each moment
is an opportunity to make a choice.

Go left or right.

Do good or bad.

Love or hate.

Shape your life.

Move with the river.

Don’t get stuck behind rocks.


Truly experience the feeling of letting go,

and living in the present moment will be

the only thing that makes any sense.
