Introduction to Mindfulness & Emotional Intelligence

When: TBD

Facilitator: Steve Smith, LMFT (408-910-4257)

The practice of mindfulness and the cultivation of emotional intelligence are invaluable skills for living today. With all of the pressures and distractions, it can be quite a challenge to live mindfully and in self-awareness. The practice of Mindfulness allows one to live more in the present moment and successfully navigate emotional experiences. Developing these skills can have many practical benefits, including better relationships, improved work performance, better health, the ability to respond rather than react, and an overall sense of well-being.

This class is for both men and women and will include both experiential exercises as well as informational learning.

When: TBD

Facilitator: Steve Smith, LMFT (408-910-4257)

In order to excel in a particular activity or endeavor in life, it is import to practice the fundamentals associated with that endeavor. We often don’t think of love and relationships in this way, but it is really no different. There are fundamentals and skills we can (and must!) practice if we want to maintain a loving relationship with our partners. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to engage in experiential exercises with your partner that will help: 

  1. Reconnect/Repair after conflict

  2. Dissolve emotional barriers and defensiveness

  3. Foster greater love/connection with each other. 

  4. Improve authentic communication

What workshop participants said…

"Steve, I wanted to thank you for the great workshop. I don't have enough words to tell you how much I appreciate you, your time, and the way you addressed the different issues we all have to deal with as a couple or individuals. Before attending your workshop my husband was a little anti all  these kinds of workshops, or other treatments that focus on couples and general human relationships with others. He really likes you and your workshop and we are both planning on continuing to attend. Thanks for putting the effort and time to provide us with knowledge and new tools to improve ourselves as individuals and as a couple." —Workshop Participant
