In A World of Separation
To breathe is nearly a radical act today.
Imagine a world where we come together as a community to practice staying mindfully present, as well as explore what’s hard to experience in our times. We envision what it means to hold the high watch together, mindfully turning toward our highest selves, rather than polarizing toward separation due to fear or hurt.
We collectively believe that waking up is hard to do,
yet what is necessary now.
Gather & Study with us for the
What Is The #MindfulHighWatch2020?
In today’s stormy seas, we offer a 2-part series that includes two distinct mindfulness experiences.
A Time to Gather and a Time to Study.
Get grounded with ancient practices:
Build our collective ability to share compassion, cultivate tolerance and even allow civil disagreement. Our present heartfulness and active listening connect us. Dignity and decency hold us. Witness our inner journey and that of those around us.
Radically choose not to run away.
This is all about checking-in versus checking out.
Come to one, some or all of the Time to Gather for the next 8 weeks. In our talk show format, hear from thought leaders, civic activists, and real people who realize that as we wake up, we must take action.
Commit to the 6-week Time to Study. Establish a vibrant, nourishing foundational mindfulness practice into your daily life.JOIN US NOW

Meet Suzanne Jewell, The Mindful Entrepreneur
Suzanne Jewell, CEO of The Mindful Entrepreneur is former global TV executive turned mindfulness teacher because the practice saved her life. Through awareness during a 3-day migraine, she sensed something wasn’t “right” in her bodily experience, heading to the ER, where a small, 2mm unruptured aneurysm was detected. Grateful to be alive, she lives by the mantra, #WokeUpAboveGround.

Practical takeaways are Suzanne’s expertise, like the PBS (Pause.Breathe.Smile) as well as her beloved Anti-anxiety Breath Practice.

Learn To Breathe
Calm your Nerves
Anxiety highjacks your nervous system and your state of mind.
The Jewell’s beloved Anti-Anxiety Breath helps.
- 6 seconds breathe in through the nose.
- 1 second let the breath gently circulate inside.
- 8 seconds of exhalation , pursing your lips.
- 10 cycles of 6-1-8 anti-anxiety breathing slows your roll.
