Start Your Week with
the Power of Intention

What would be different if you started your week with time for you?  What if, in a space of quiet and calm, you could hear your heart and build your plans with its wisdom?

With Mindful Mondays, you will embark on a weekly practice that connects you to your inner compass and allows you to develop and focus your plans based on insight and self-trust.

The practice is simple. The impact is palpable.

This season, start each week grounded in your heart’s truth.

Start your week with Mindful Mondays.


Mindful Mondays

Mindful Mondays is an online series of live practice sessions that will help your begin your week with focus, clarity and intention.

Imagine looking at your plans, your lists, your to-dos and knowing that they are rooted in your heart, your truth, your desire.

Imagine starting your week by entering a dedicated space and time for you, your wisdom and your life.

Mindful Mondays are working sessions. During our time together, we will bring our focused attention to the process of knowing ourselves and planning our lives, one week at a time.

Mindful Mondays Gives You…

An Intentional Practice

Each Monday we will meet and engage in a regular practice of tuning into ourselves and intentionally developing the week’s plans and to-dos based on the insight and wisdom we discover.

Powerful Tools

In Mindful Mondays we will use the following tools:

  • Journaling: Each week we will journal to clear our cluttered minds and access the voice of wisdom that lies underneath the noise.
  • Meditation: During each session, we will take time to meditate and be present with ourselves and one another.
  • Focus Areas: In our introductory meeting, we will name and claim our true priorities in the form of focus areas. Each subsequent week we will develop our plans and to-do lists based on what really matters.

A Supportive Structure

Even though we know things like journaling, meditation and getting clear on our priorities would make a difference in our lives, we often find it hard to get them on our schedule! With Mindful Mondays, you will have a time and a place to show up for yourself and for your life.

An Intentional Community

You won’t be alone on this journey! You’ll be a part of a group of creative hearts learning, growing and creating a life of intention right alongside you. Plus you’ll have the guidance of a creative living coach and trained meditation instructor – that’s me!

Insight & Magic

Whenever we engage in a regular practice that brings us face-to-face with ourselves, whenever we show up with intention and love, our awareness expands and our insight grows.  Inevitably we find some magic along the way.

Psst…. here’s what participants have to say about the magic of Mindful Mondays…

Mindful Monday’s helped me to design my week consciously and mindfully. Being ‘on purpose’ instead of reacting to whatever happens each day. It’s not simply having a plan but a mindset and Jamie skillfully leads us through a simple yet powerful process in about forty-five minutes. Her meditations are simple and doable and give me a space of calm and help me open to receive. If you’re looking for a way to lean into organizing your to do’s and your want to do’s into a format you can take with you I invite you to lean into your week with Mindful Mondays. Laura Allen

Mindful Mondays gave me the practice I was looking for, a way to regularly stay in touch with what is meaningful in my life and what I want to create in my life. Being able to return week after week to the practice of tuning in to my deepest yearnings, and considering them even in the swirl of life’s responsibilities gave me a structure and confidence that I was staying true to myself. Spending Monday mornings in a circle of wise women was a deeply grounding force that shaped my weeks this winter. Helen Yee

Starting the week off with Monday is rough for me! But starting the week off with Mindful Mondays – Jamie at the helm and surrounded by sisters – creates room to breathe and sets the tone for a creative, supported week. I’ve come to look forward to this beginning practice that enables me to stop, focus honestly on where I am and where I hope to go. Carol Kitchell

 Do you look forward to Mondays or dread its arrival? If the latter is your answer, no more when you begin your week with Mindful Monday! This practice is the very best way to live a week that is filled with joy, peace, mindfulness, progress, productivity and happiness. Led by Jamie you’ll “live for Monday!” Come on in! Join us! Mindful Mondays is for everyone! Cheers! Honore Francois

 I love Mindful Mondays! My whole week became focused and took on a hopeful tone because of one hour spent together, writing, sharing, encouraging. I loved the process, the celebration, the touchstone words. I plan to sign up again right away. This Practice really made a difference in how I journeyed through winter. Paula White

When I decided to sign up I already thought I had a pretty good process in place to review my week and fill in my focus areas in my yearbook. But participating in this group was so much better than doing it on my own. I find that I look forward to this focused time to get my week off to a great start. I know I got things done this season that I wouldn’t have otherwise because I had a place to announce my celebrations.  I loved hearing everyone’s comments each week, gathering inspiration from their touchstones and celebrating our accomplishments. While I found it challenging to get up earlier the first few weeks, it’s now a dedicated part of my week that I really look forward to. Starting Mondays like this has helped me focus more mindfully throughout the week. Thank you Jamie and everyone in the circle. Mindful Mondays made my winter more magical. Such a supportive, insightful group of women. I will miss you all during the break. Who knew that one special hour could mean so much? Amy Christaldi  

 Mindful Mondays provided the missing piece in my planning process: a way to keep my long-term, creative goals in the foreground, and not let them be driven out by urgent but less important tasks. It’s been well worth getting up earlier than usual to be there for the live session. Taking time to consider the shape of the week ahead and set my intention for it, supported by the energy of the group, kept me in touch with my truer, deeper priorities as I made choices about how to spend my time and energy. It was always a surprise to review my focus areas the following week and see how much of what I envisioned had gotten done. I’ll continue the practice on my own until it’s time for the winter session. Anne DeMarsay
