Micki is the founder of Mindful Living and pioneer of mindfulness in Houston, Texas since 1994.
Micki's Style and Philosophy
Micki's belief in the power of one's inherent goodness and capacity for healing strongly influences her work teaching mindfulness courses, workshops and ongoing meditation groups.
Her intention is to create a warm, supportive space in her mindfulness-based classes, groups and individual training to help people feel safe to explore their thoughts, emotions, relationships, and feelings. Mindfulness is the basis for her services. Healthy, positive change results from being able to experience what is happening in the current moment. "When you know where you are, you begin to know where you really want to go. Acceptance opens the door to healing." She will collaborate with you to help you open to your inner resources through cultivating mindful awareness and compassion.
