Four Keys of Living Mindfully

While meditation is one key to a mindful life, there are other keys that improve the quality of one’s life, relationships, sense of clarity, and meaning. In this course, you will learn how to develop the skills to integrate these four keys in your daily life and gain insight into how these mindfulness practices can offer you a greater sense of well-being, resiliency, and a deeper sense of meaning for your life.

Who is this course for?

Everyone can benefit from practicing mindfulness, regardless of cultural, economic, religious, or spiritual background. Drawing from decades of training, personal practice, education, and application in daily life, we provide you with skills that are practical, accessible, and universal.

Whether you’ve been practicing mindfulness for a long time or just starting out, this course will offer you specific tools and relevant teachings. No prior study of mindfulness or experience in meditation is required. If you have been practicing mindfulness and meditation, this course will deepen and enhance your practice.

Customize your mindfulness practice to align with your own deepest values. The Mindful Life Program and teachings encourage you to identify your own values and learn to apply practices to live in alignment with them. In other words, we do not ask you to conform to a pre-determined set of values or ideals. Instead, we encourage you to get to know yourself on a daily basis, discover your own values, and determine a daily program that sets a course toward a more enriching and meaningful life.

“John has a very compassionate, peaceful and engaging presence.  I felt very present and joyful all weekend.  The meditations were simple and enjoyable, and I feel like I can apply what we learned to my life in a practical way.  I also felt I made big steps in letting go of some old “stuff” that occupied my mind often, I did this without even trying.   Perceptions shifted, old baggage fell away.  That is awesome and quite amazing.”   –Patti Spadaro

“I look back on my 3 day Mindfulness Workshop and feel the benefits I received. Your approach is so peaceful, loving and motivates one with the feeling of “Yes, I can do that.”  I remember more than once, during another recent retreat, thinking, “This is what John was teaching, but John made it seem so much easier and attainable” and a 24 minute meditation to boot!  You have a marvelous gift for teaching and your talents inspire others to learn.  Thank you so much for the work you are doing.” David Karg, Naples, FL

“I benefited greatly, and so has my family, from my participation in the Mindful Life Program. In two days I learned the tools needed to begin to interrupt my lifetime of preemptive and reactive thinking.   In the month following, I have found some things easy to apply and others very challenging.  I continue to challenge myself towards that change though and that is due to the knowledge gained through John and the other participants.  Thank you, John, for the work you do and I look forward to participating in your future programs and offerings.” Amber Wolfrom, Findlay, Ohio

“John offers the wisdom of a Buddhist sage embodied through his life experiences. His humor has reminded me not to take myself too seriously, rather take risks, have fun as consciously and gratefully as is possible in every step of life. He has offered me deep insights every time I sit with him. In love and gratitude.” – Tecumseh, Durango, Colorado

“Every event I have hosted for John Bruna has had excellent reviews from attendees, the most commonly asked question is “when will he return?” John has a gift for teaching. If you are considering hosting John for your group – he delivers every time with humor and grace, leaving participants with a new view of themselves and the world.” Dr. Joan Coff
