Inspire- Support- Connect
“We need each other. We need to make alternate families of small groups of women who support each other, talk to each other regularly, can speak their truths and their experiences and find they’re not alone in them.” – Gloria Steinem
Club Mindful is a group of like-minded women in Westchester County who have connected to form a private community based on the mindfulness concepts of non-judgment, compassion, empathy and gratitude.
Under the direction and leadership of psychotherapist, Jodi Baretz, we offer a unique way to practice mindfulness and get support while simultaneously socializing and giving back to the community.
We are social creatures and we thrive on having ties with others and being part of a social fabric. Our growing reliance on technology rather than face to face interaction makes us feel isolated. There is a relationship between mental health and belonging to a community. Participation in our program provides opportunities to network and socialize through fun mindfulness-based activities.
Personal awareness, emotional intelligence and spirituality are important components to fulfilment. Activities are planned to help foster growth in these areas.
As a mindful community, gratitude is incorporated into our program. When possible, we engage in activities through charitable service.
Jodi Baretz, LCSW, CHHC Facilitator of Club Mindful meetings which consist of meditations and discussions of personal challenges taking place for group members. Common topics include issues with food, stress and relationships.
Sabra Staudenmaier - Program Coordinator, Sabra creates opportunities for the group to interact socially, while practicing mindfulness concepts. She organizes a seasonal book club and monthly social events that promote the cultivation of mindfulness, self-development and spirituality.
