More About This Workshop...

Session 1 – Zazen Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness Meditation is considered the heart of Buddhist meditation, but its essence is universal and of deep practical benefit to all. In essence, mindfulness is about wakefulness, to the present moment.  It is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally, in the service of self-understanding and wisdom. When we add Zazen to the fundamental Mindfulness technique, we practice to expand our awareness to encompass as many contexts of the present moment, and the larger Truth as we can. We’ll do an in-depth exploration and practice to bring the 9 Tenets of Mindfulness into your Life.

Meet your teacher. 

Maggie Pandolfi is an advocate for and practitioner of evolutionary impulse and wild awareness.  She is ravenous about exploration and thrives on curiosity.

Her background includes chapters spent as a Corporate Exec as she has her CPA and a graduate degree in International Business but thankfully, she is in remission at this time.  She has also happily spent a great amount of time raising her two sons and husband, which seems to be a never-ending project currently still in process.  

Additionally, she has recently achieved a 16 yr tenure of long-time sobriety, which created the opportunity for her to awaken from her Dark Night of the Soul, one of her greatest achievements.

During those years of recovery, she has been deeply engaged in a foray for personal discovery and empowerment.  This has taken her to study and train in multiple traditions, modalities, and paths.  She draws from a wealth of multi-dimensional educations, including Shamanism/Native Ritual, behavioral/depth psychology, Shadow Work, Energy Medicine, and Archetypal/Myth and Goddess teachings, among others. 

She traded in her corporate roles, to become an Executive Director of Inner Gold, a Board Member of Inner Yaga, a certified Transpersonal Life Coach of Inner Wisdom, the author of The Inferno Within, and a Temple Mama/Leader for Awakening Woman.  

She believes that strength is in the ability to be in the question, not the answer. She aspires to being in service to the bigger perspective and when not found painting and writing in her sanctuary, she can be found enjoying nature, wandering, and women’s communities.
