Using the stunning campus of Virginia's Theological Seminary, learn to approach meditation in a natural way, using your senses as doorways into meditative moments that will help you find more ease in your days.
You'll develop a meditation practice unique to you, that you crave, and that you can squeeze into existing moments. You'll be surprised that meditation doesn’t take a lot of time or discipline in order for it to work.
Being more present in the moment can have a positive impact on classroom outcomes for your students.
The meditation session was fantastic. I was able to let go and relax and had the best night of sleep I’ve had in a long time."

"Tears welled up in my eyes the first time I said 'I give myself permission to rest.' What a concept for educators. We aren't use to putting ourselves at the top of any lists."
-Denise Yassine, 5th-grade teacher Congressional School, VA
"Not only did meditation help me cope, I learned ways to share these tools with my students. Talk about a win-win situation! I highly recommend her classes for a modern approach to meditation."
-Jen Muriel, Oley Valley School District, PA
After a period of severe grief and health issues, Berni discovered meditation as a tool to help her be at her very best, both professionally and personally.
She learned how to reverse the very real and devastating impact of stress through simple and easy techniques. And then she started sharing these strategies with her students.
Berni is passionate about helping teachers to restore and sustain balance in life, starting with getting over the guilt of taking a rest.
In addition to continuing her work in meditation, Berni will return to the traditional classroom and will be teaching Biology & Chemistry this fall at Shorecrest Preparatory School in St. Petersburg, FL.

I believe in the power of meditation and have been dabbling in it for the past couple of years through books, podcasts, etc., but Berni helped me to turn the corner and make it a part of my life.
