Classes, Private Sessions, Family Practice, & Professional Development
"We have learned how to be curious about our feelings and needs. This has resulted in less reactivity, greater patience, and more peace in our house."
"I took this class with my son, but I see how it is benefiting our whole family. When my son and I practice being more compassionate to ourselves, we model these behaviors and can recommend them to the rest of our family. I think we will continue to use these techniques for years to come!"

"My daughter and I really looked forward to our time every week with Jamie Lynn. She has such a calming presence and was able to facilitate discussions between my daughter and I that wouldn’t have happened otherwise. Jamie Lynn introduced many very practical strategies to help my daughter and I deal with the stress of life, I feel as if I understand better how to help my daughter get what she needs in order to be happy. " -Beth A., Whitefish Bay

"Dear Jamie Lynn,
It has been a privilege to have a professional of your depth in our home dispensing tailored Mindfulness training. I am thrilled with the new levels of inner balance I experience. And I know exactly what I am doing (and not doing!) to be balanced. The class experience is entirely reproducible in my daily work and play. It gives me confidence and I highly recommend anyone considering a group or private course put themselves into your capable hands.
It is a rare and wonderful thing to find material profoundly relevant, and both my daughter and I had this occur.
In our eight weeks together, we have delved into Mindfulness, skillfully relating to difficult feelings, and into positive Neuroplasticity. The information has naturally opened the conversation in our home to include our inner lives of emotion and awareness. With a child on the threshold of adulthood and another on the threshold of puberty, these skills come at a critical time. What better way to hold on to the tender connection with our two growing children than to meet one another’s inner abstract world."

Jamie Lynn’s class was very helpful to me because I learned a lot about mindfulness. For example, I learned how to talk about my emotions in a nice way. I learned things I could do instead of screaming at people. My favorite thing I learned was 8 shakes. It taught me how to shake away my anger.
