Do you ever feel like your brain has been hacked by your ‘smart’ phone?

Check out this 2 minute video to learn more (placeholder)

In the digital age mindfulness is a superpower for managing the fire hose of stimulus and distraction coming from our devices. Our most precious asset is ATTENTION because what we focus on grows. Today it is considered ‘normal’ to spend 7 or more hours a day staring blankly at a screen!
Its a zero sum equation: the more time and attention you invest in abstract, virtualized relationships in the cloud, the less you have for the humans and deep work in the real world that feed your soul.


GOING OFFLINE is a 4 week mindfulness based digital detox and social fitness bootcamp is designed to help you reset your relationship with technology (your phone or laptop) so you can have more time and focus for relationships in the real world.


> Your phone is starting to feel like a personal appendage that you can’t live without

> You want to be more focused and present at work and home

> You want to feel more connection, creativity and contentment in everyday life

> You want to reset your attention palette for more self care, deep work and community building in the real world

>THIS TRAINING IS NOT FOR YOU IF: You are not able to examine the habitual patterns and emotions driving your use of social media and other apps. This course discusses potent topics including loneliness, intimate relationships, self perception, social anxiety and addictions. Please first consult a trusted health professional if you are struggling with a serious mental health condition.

4 weeks to more FOCUS & FUN offline

WEEK 1: Attention reset

In this module we will discuss why attention is the key to healthy relationships and how social media and other forms of digital communication can wreck havoc on our attention and sense of self.  In this session you will also learn a simple mindfulness meditation practice, a morning routine and goals to set the container for this digital detox.

WEEK 2: Going through the fire

When we set limits on our online communication via social media or other apps there can be a sense of becoming persona nongrata. FOMO, anxiety and boredom can come to the surface to hook us. In this session we discuss working with habitual patterns and emotions using mindfulness and self compassion 

WEEK 3: Bids for connection

In this module we discuss mindful communication and relating in the wild. Connecting to fellow humans involves a skill set that many of us have forgotten. Social media and other digital forms of communication have habituated us to presenting a curated version of ourselves to the world. In this session we will explore the role vulnerability and working with fear in forming new relationships and making bids for connection.

WEEK 4: Social fitness for life

Social fitness, like physical fitness, is based on creating a supportive lifestyle. In this final session we will focus on reengaging digital communication as a tool to strengthen social bonds in the real world. By the end of this program you will have a plan to reinvest some of the time recaptured from screens into personal and community relationships.
