    Could you address dealing with resistance to a daily practice? I tried being rigid with a defined schedule and that didn’t work for me. I tried setting a time and doing what I was led to do that day from my favorite practices and that was better but I still resisted. Then I tried holding space for embracing my resistance which allowed me to go deeper in my personal understanding. How do you approach ‘resistance’ in a way that allows for healing and long term growth?

    How do I present mindfulness practices to health clubs or yoga centers. I exercised too much in the past to the point of developing a chronic back pain. I did not find a counselor in these venues, who were prepare to help me during the days that I need to exercise but also needed a practice like mindfulness to bring balance in my life?

    Very happy that my friend Margo set me up with this 21 day meditation. I am now sure it is going to be part of my everyday or night plan. It led me to realize that quiet time is as important as the busy life I love. Thanks and looking forward to the 9th live stream.

    Is it possible to access your meditations we have practice. Your tone, space between talking and allowing quiet meditation is perfect balance. I’d love to continue practicing yours.

    Elisha, I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on how to effectively use mindfulness if you have experienced , and are healing and recovering from, complex trauma (developmental trauma). Thank you, Esther

    I had difficulties focusing on my breathing and coming back to that when my mind went away from the focus on breathing. The meditations when there was plenty of talking like the Body Scan meditation helped me best and any with what felt like oceans of silence were the hardest for me. So how to keep coming back to a breathing focus without beating myself up for my mind moving away from that focus?
