Welcome

Welcome to Waking Up With Mindfulness, a 28-day immersion delving into the foundational practices of meditation. 

This course is designed to introduce the meditation-curious to simple, sustainable practices, while also offering support to those with previous experience.

Practising mindfulness meditation can offer many personal benefits. Mental stability, emotional regulation, resilience, compassion...these are a few of the positive qualities we can cultivate through this work on our cushions that helps us as individuals and extends beyond to our communities at large.

Each day, tune in for a 20-minute video of Adrienne unpacking the how’s and why’s of mindfulness, and engage in the guided practice. While this course is designed to be done over 28 consecutive days, you will be granted 60 days of access (starting on the date of purchase) to accommodate for life’s hiccups.

Each week contains a theme that builds on the previous lessons; by the end of the course, gain the tools and confidence to carry on with your own practice.

What people are saying about this course

Didn’t want it to end

J Conrad

“This was wonderful. Of all the meditations that I’ve attempted, this is the first time that I didn’t want it to end. I’ve always had difficulty in getting through guided meditations. Adrienne has a special way of drawing me into a calm state, helping me focus on the right things...Thank you for this.”

Wow

Jason F

Wow, the audio is just exemplary. So impressed!

A habit!

Nat F

Your meditation series got me into a habit! It’s the first time I’ve done an almost daily practice ever! [As a musician] I have a lot of performance anxieties, but I took some moments throughout my set to hear your voice and come back to my breath.

Less anxiety

Mel S

After having gotten COVID, I’ve had a lot of anxiety. These meditations are really helping. Adrienne has the most soothing voice.
