I was inspired to create the Mindful Living Essentials Program because I suffered for so long under the guise of success as an entrepreneur. Many, many years with that empty feeling.. that void in life. The small dull ache of feeling incomplete. And when I solved that for myself with Mindfulness, I could not do anything less than share those learnings with my fellow man.  

It’s a gift and must be made accessible and simple for all”   

Aaron Kahlow

“Living with chronic illness led me in the direction of Mindfulness. After years of searching and seeking for answers to healing outside of myself, the only place that I had left to go was within. Deploying the everyday skills of Mindful Living has changed my life and has deeply impacted how I look at myself and the world around me. It is from this place of fullness that I purposefully share and teach my own learnings with others.”

Cultivating a Life of Mindfulness

The time has come to simplify the burdens of our modern minds, to lead a life of meaning and purpose.

It’s time to have a deeper sense of calm and clarity. Time for greater awareness of the here and now. Time to experience joy in all moments of life!

Our natural state is one of peace and happiness: let’s reclaim it. By tapping into a deeper and greater sense of inner knowing, we can create more meaningful connections with ourselves and others, allowing us to just be.

Creating Your Mindful Living Practice

Mindfulness is the most logical, practical way to regain control of your life. Science and research have proven the benefits and millions serve as living testimonies of its impacts.

The Mindful Living Essentials Program is designed to make the teachings of mindfulness both simple and accessible to our busy modern day lives. Its goal is to take individuals (and teams) through a step-by-step process to comprehend, commit and sustain a modern-day mindfulness practice. By using proven methodologies, we have created a comprehensive program for mindful living that is simple in its teachings and profound in its wisdom.  You’ll find the teachings accessible and easy to understand, without any religious dogma, preaching or woo woo.

Students will walk away with a better understanding of self, deeper compassion for others, and an unshakeable sense of meaningful purpose to bring into your work, relationships and everyday moments.

Working together, we will re-discover our truest selves, to live a life of meaningful purpose, ease and greater joy.
