Pause for Calm and Connection

Guided Meditation and optional Sharing

Wednesdays 12:15-12:45pm PT via  Zoom

Drop Ins are Welcome! Feel free to invite others. The lovely group is usually between 20-30 people–some faces visible, others just listening! The sessions are not cumulative, although the more often you practice, the more fluent and easily you can BE with your responses and emotions from a calm, curious, compassionate place.

You’ll be muted automatically and can choose to have your camera/video on or off. Log in anytime after noon so you’re technically settled in time! At 12:15pm PT, I’ll welcome us, lead a 10-15 minute meditation, then give you a moment for writing or quiet reflection before opening the call up to some brief sharing.  All  are welcome!

There is no charge for the Pauses, but if you find them supportive and are inclined, donations are appreciated to help defray costs of continuing to offer them. You may make a credit card donation here  or via ApplePay or VenMo (@LauraschmidtLMFT phone # ending in 0622). Thank you so much, in advance!
