SESSION 1: The masks we wear, the feelings behind them.
In this session, you will be introduced to a new way of looking at fear. By understanding the different masks we wear to hide from fear, you can start to build awareness around how you show up in the world. We will look at the different emotions we are trying to hide from and what powerful messages they are trying to offer us
SESSION 2: Limiting beliefs
In this session, limiting beliefs are introduced by exploring how you feel and what you believe to be true about yourself. Looking at your limiting beliefs shows you where you are holding your self back. By becoming aware of these self judgments, you can start to cultivate a new relationship with yourself and understand where you are actually (not) limited.
SESSION 3: The inner child
Working with the inner child is a powerful experience. This part of your subconscious harbours your suppressed needs. These suppressed needs are often the root cause of the problems that constantly show up in our relationships with others. By working with your inner child you have a chance to heal this aspect of you, mending the pattern of projecting your needs onto loved ones. This practice teaches you how to self soothe and take care of your own needs. How empowering!
SESSION 4: The shadow self
The shadow self is a tough aspect to work with. This session ill be heavier than the others and there is a strong chance you will be triggered; but that’s kind of the point with the shadow. Triggers are treasures, showing you parts of your true self that you have suppressed so deep in your subconscious that the only way you can now access them is through your projection of them onto others. All the things that others do that make you cringe, that’s your shadow talking.
Although this session seems intense, it is quite liberating. Shadow work allows you to release major judgements, let go of grief and reclaim yourself in a powerful way. You deserve that.
SESSION 5: Boundaries + Integrations
Boundaries have personally been the most powerful practice for me in terms of reclaiming my self worth. When we place our boundaries with love and kindness, we practice the ultimate form of self care. This powerful practice will help you integrate all that you have learned and come up with a game plan so that you can apply all this wisdom to your every day reality.
SESSION 6: Private session

For the final week you will have a private session with Jasmine so she can fully support you on the next step of your spiritual process. Having this one on one time will allow you to ask anything you didn’t feel comfortable bringing up in the group, as well as allowing all the focus to be on you. Let’s ground you in a plan that feels good and allows you to flow with life.
6 WEEK PROGRAM
Facilitated by Younion's Founder and Therapist, Natasha Grey
This program will help you develop the leadership and emotional intelligence skills needed to intensify your focus, manage stress, harness creativity and improve resilience. As a result, people from all walks of life are gaining better self-awareness, improving communication skills and leading with compassion. It all adds up to a greater well-being and happiness.
Since 2000, the number of scientific studies on mindfulness has increased significantly. As a result of these studies, valuable insights about both the effects of mindfulness and the underlying mechanisms have emerged.
This program was developed to systematically increase mindfulness not only through mindfulness practice, but also by considering the underlying mechanisms of mindfulness at play. This program answers questions such as, “What happens when I meditate?” Why and how does mindfulness increase well-being? How is acceptance of emotions different from suppression and distraction? What are the effects of mindfulness and how can it improve my life?
This program offers experiential practices including the latest tools and techniques of neuroscience, psychology and the study of well-being. By addressing the most important elements of mindfulness, one-by-one, this program breaks down mindfulness in a comprehensive way. After completing this program, participants will have learned how to integrate mindfulness into their daily lives and have gained a deeper understanding of the essence of the construct itself.
Each session is a combination of lecture, practice, and discussion.

Overview of Mindfulness
- Obstacles to Mindfulness

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE PROGRAM
“The subtle transition over six weeks has yielded a transformational impact on my life, which has allowed me to slow down, take charge of my thoughts, and nurture a deep connection with myself and those around me.”-- Pamela W.

SESSION 1: Attention & the Now
In this session, you will learn about the two most important building blocks of mindfulness: attention and the present moment awareness. The role of thoughts and their relationship with the present moment is introduced.
SESSION 2: Judgment
In this session, open awareness is introduced by addressing the evaluative nature of the mind. While open awareness involves non-judgment, countless judgments and evaluations cloud most of our daily awareness. By becoming aware of these judgments, an important obstacle of open awareness is removed. In this session, participants experience the judgmental nature of their mind and learn about the problematic aspects of judgments.
SESSION 3: Acceptance
The goal of this session is to introduce the concept of acceptance. Mindfulness promotes an accepting stance towards experiences. Rather than fighting or avoiding experiences, mindfulness requires willingness to experience them. Acceptance, however, is a complex and paradoxical construct. This session aims to clarify the essence of acceptance by learning to apply acceptance to difficult emotions and by explaining the goal of acceptance.
SESSION 4: Compassion
In this session, participants will become acquainted with their inner critic and by increasing their awareness of the inner critic and practicing self-compassion through meditation and self-caring action, they will learn to effectively cultivate a friendly and caring relationship with the self.
SESSION 5: Intention and Goals
This session clarifies the relationship between intentions and goals and how mindfulness plays a massive role in the fulfillment of attaining any goal.
SESSION 6: Integration
This session focuses on the ways in which mindfulness can be integrated in daily life. In this session, participants are invited to create a personal plan for sustainably incorporating mindfulness in their daily lives after completing this training.

“Self-compassion is the ability to turn understanding, acceptance, and love inward - toward ourselves.” - Kristen Neff
Many people are able to extend compassion toward others but find it difficult to extend the same compassion toward themselves.
Research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, coping with life challenges, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more satisfying personal relationships.
This 4 week series is a compilation of fourth wave psychology combining the skills of mindfulness and the work of Kristen Neff's self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional wellbeing.
We will practice using mindfulness to help us tune inward with kind awareness toward difficult experience (thoughts, emotions, and sensations). And incorporate self-compassion by bringing loving awareness to ourselves. Together, mindfulness and self-compassion comprise a state of warm, connected, presence during difficult moments in our life.
Self-compassion is an inner strength that enables us to be more fully human—to acknowledge our shortcomings, learn from them, and make necessary changes with an attitude of kindness and care. Self-compassion can be learned by anyone.
You will learn:
- how to stop being so hard on yourself
- how to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
- how to encourage yourself rather than criticise yourself
- mindfulness and self-compassion practices for everyday life
- how to practice self-appreciation
This 4 week series includes discussion of specific topics, experiential exercises, meditations, small group interaction and home practices.
If you are going through a life transition or a difficult time or just want to learn and practice the skill and art of Self-Compassion, this 4 week series is for you!
It is encouraged to have completed the Mindfulness FX Program, however, it is not a requirement.
Please note that space is limited to 8 people ONLY to keep the safety and intimacy of the group.
