The information below provides a better idea of how my 5-session holistic law program is generally structured:

Session 1

In our initial meeting we will discuss your legal issues in the context of your current life situation, e.g., your home environment, work life, as well as your more broad circle of familial and social relationships.  We will begin to identify reactive tendencies that may be clouding optimal judgment at this point in time.

Sessions 2 and 3

In our second and third sessions, you will be provided with an introduction to “mindfulness” – understood as a heightened awareness of your present-moment experience. This awareness may be obtained through somatic attention to the breath, seated posture, contact with the floor, sounds in the environment, etc. In coming to more fully connect to your present-moment experience, you begin to move beyond learned conditioning and reactive thoughts and behaviors, and toward a more optimal approach to the situation(s) you are facing.

Session 4

Having begun to appreciate the freedom offered by simple mindful attention to present experience, we begin to further explore past thoughts and conditioned reactions to these thoughts that may have contributed to your current difficulties. While we look at these thoughts, we return to present-moment awareness in a way that further instills a foundational appreciation that you need not be defined by, nor have your behavior automatically spring from, your conditioned thinking.

Session 5

In our fifth session, we build on your foundation of present-moment awareness in defining a future plan of action to concretely address your current challenges. By committing to this plan, you will continuously enhance your ability to access inner peace and become far less reactive to challenging life situations.
