YOUR GUIDE - Jim Aldrich

 STOP - LOOK - LISTEN is the result of a decade plus calling. My purpose with this undertaking is offer a resource  designed to support participants in their quest to be the person they are meant to be: Empowered, content with their personhood, confident, responsive and to genuinely care about others and their world.

While the  approach is easy to learn, each step along its path can be a challenge. The Payoff: A radically different way of experiencing your world. Over my lifetime I’ve consistently worked to challenge others and myself to be all we can be.

This included serving as a minister in several community and church settings, work is hospice and other medical settings, while earning a B.S.W. degree From Colorado State University and a Masters Degree in Religion from the Iliff School of Theology, Denver, CO where I studied adult education and human development.

My last 35 years of employment has been as a social worker in a variety of capacities. It was during the later years of my career that I became involved in helping people apply mindfulness in their lives. In addition, I now enjoy a second career as a published writer. I look forward to a relationship based on each of us learning from and teaching the other.

In addition, I am an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church.

Why a program? “Learning” Mindfulness is a life-long pursuit. There are no short-cuts, no Cliff Notes summarizing what to do, and no “just getting by.”

For those seekers who stay with Mindfulness there will be  doubters. Your  life will change, you will change. As I like to tell people learning Mindfulness is really quite simple; there a few mysteries involved. Practicing it s hard.

It is in the program that you will experience ongoing support, a chance to participate in the education of yourself and others.
