A Deepening Mindfulness Practice Series

The Nine Attitudinal Foundations of Mindfulness

Interactive Online Program

In this four-part series we will unpack the Nine Attitudinal Foundations of Mindfulness. We will work to understand and integrate them into our lives both in our formal and informal practices.

This class is for experienced practitioners of mindfulness, graduates of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and graduates of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy who would like to go deeper in their practice, who would like support in working with, and through, the various obstacles and challenges that arise, and who would like to further integrate this practice into their daily lives.

Each 105-minute class will include a period of meditation, group discussion, and opportunities to ask questions, as we explore ways to, more consistently, embody mindfulness with increased clarity, compassion, and tenderness, while bringing more presence and aliveness to our moment-by-moment experience. In so doing we increase our resilience and deepen our wisdom and bring this into our daily life.

She teaches Mindfulness at the Orchard Hill Center (formerly known as The Princeton Center for Yoga & Health) as well as additional virtual classes on various platforms. Her offerings include the renowned 8-week (MBSR) Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program, mindfulness programs for experienced practitioners and mindfulness programs for graduates of MBSR and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. In addition to teaching, she partners with individuals to provide one-on-one mindfulness based integrative health and well-being coaching. She also works with organizations to design and deliver customized mindfulness-based training programs and volunteers in schools to bring mindfulness to students in grades K-12.

Prior to this, Serena spent 13 years in a non-profit management and fundraising career where she supported several large-scale organizations including the Boys & Girls Club, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and the Drumthwacket Foundation. She is also a trained Montessori teacher and spent three years teaching in the classroom.

Serena sat her first silent 10-day meditation retreat in her early 20’s and knew that this path was one she would walk on again in life. Ten years ago, she gave birth to her first child and thus began the ultimate quest for work / life balance which ultimately led her to delve deeper into health and wellness and eventually shift careers.

She finds deep purpose in the path to health, well-being, and stress reduction. She has witnessed the first-hand positive effects it has had on herself and her community. She believes that individuals hold the ultimate power in creating the lives they wish to live and by cultivating a mindful awareness, they can utilize the best means they have to do so, themselves.

Serena’s mission as a mindfulness teacher / facilitator and coach is to make the world a more mindful and compassionate one by making the teachings of mindfulness and well-being more easily accessible for all individuals helping them to become more fully present and empowering them to envision and create the changes they want for healthier and happier lives.
