Mindful Life Program

Jessica has learned in her years as a healer that the power of the mind in healing is unparalleled.  Her passion has always been to help empower her patients in their own healing journey.  Both she and her husband Dusty have become certified Mindful Life Program teachers and are now offering 8 week courses as well as weekend intensives on mindfulness and meditation.  These courses are made to be universal, practical, and accessible to anyone from any background.  To see their current course offerings visit


Other current offerings:  Dusty is hosting Mindful Mondays in the Mountaineer Field House at Western Colorado University (Mondays at 4:00pm - free to Field House members or $5 to general public).  To learn more call Dusty at (970) 641-3898.  We are also hosting a free monthly meetup for alumni of our 8 week Mindfulness Foundations courses to provide ongoing support and practice.  These will be held at the Here and Now Center on the third Sunday of each month at 5:00 pm for one hour.  


Mindfulness as taught through the Mindful Life Program includes learning the skills of meditation and building attention as well as the skills and practices of understanding our values, wisdom with ourselves and the world, and work with relationships.  To learn more visit
