  1. Hi everyone! I just wanted to share one of the things I run for free a few times a year that's starting next week: my Path to Presence Retreat. It's a free 5-day virtual meditation retreat that is focused on building a sustainable meditation practice that sticks. It intends to get folks working ON their practice and seeing it as a habit that can grow with them as life shifts. One and all are welcome, we meet each day over zoom and Facebook live April 12-16 9 am EST. There are replays and watch parties available from inside the Facebook group for the whole week as well. For more info and to sign up please check out: https://www.seasidefamilyacupuncture.com/path-to-presence Thanks, Zoe
  2. I don't seem to be able to sign in to the meeting today (now). Can someone send me more info so I can try another way or is anyone else having this issue?

    Path to Presence Retreat is going to take you through 5 strategies to develop a meditation practice that works for you even if you are busy or overwhelmed! Maybe you've never meditated before or maybe you have tried it but it's hard to keep it up when life gets in the way. I recognize consistency and accountability are huge issues with building a meditation practice so I created this retreat to help everyone build a meditation practice that sticks. If your meditation practice works for you then consistently show up and begin to feel more present, connected and calm. This free retreat is Jan 18-22 with some bonus days! It is self-paced and entirely virtual, there are live components on zoom and Facebook live or you can watch a replay on Facebook later when it suits you. We'll come together for just half an hour each day and I'll talk about specific strategies to integrate a meditation practice into your daily life and then I will lead us into a guided meditation and a brief period of stillness everyday.

  4. Wait I just had a reply from Sean: We are here now: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86212966262
  5. Today a 30 minute practice in patience. I'm going to stop waiting for zoom though, let me know if any breakthroughs happen and hope the afternoon call works!!
  6. Mine also says host has another meeting in progress. I thought maybe last week was off because of veteran's day and the holiday? It wasn't listed on the dashboard. I tried the usual link anyway but no luck.
  7. I tried the other link for the later call just in case but nobody was on there either. Maybe something came up and Sean wasn't able to do this call or is having some technical difficulties? Too bad since there was no call last week. At least there's one later today that hopefully works.
  8. Hi everyone, I thought I'd make an official introduction and hello to the community. I have joined this program in the last couple of weeks and am tuning in from the north shore of Boston, MA. I am an acupuncturist, shiatsu practitioner and herbalist who also teaches meditation and mindful movement. My clinic is located in Salem, MA and endeavors to integrate these different branches of oriental medicine. The majority of my work is practicing acupuncture and teaching meditation. I work with all kinds of people in both and I do a short guided meditation for each of my patients. The meditation is as important as the needles and each acupuncture point. In my private practice I work a lot with fertility to postpartum and women's health. I have also been working in a hospital in the PACE program which stands for Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly and is for low-income high-needs patients over 55. I also do some home visits through a local hospice, providing acupuncture, bodywork and meditation. I love to work with people in transition in their lives. During the pandemic I have had my hospital and hospice work on an indefinite hold and am using this time to pivot to offering meditation and mindfulness online and to deepen my own training. I've been practicing myself off and on for 20 years or so and have been more serious about teaching it the past year. I have attended several silent retreats at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA in the past 10 years. I taught meditation combined with mindful movement like qi gong and yin yoga and meridian stretches here and there over the past 7 years. I developed a 6 week program that I am teaching virtually now. I'm happy to be here and hope to learn more about helping others overcome obstacles in their practice and how to more masterfully guide others. I actually had frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) last year and it was a painful and debilitating condition and it began to dramatically lessen once I started teaching my 6 week program and I felt that teaching mindfulness and meditation is definitely the direction I need to move towards.
