The themes for Rosh Chodesh Elul are forgiveness, compassion, and waking up, as we prepare for the High Holidays. We are happy to welcome Julie Potiker who will be leading a Mindfulness Class for our next Rosh Chodesh.

Through her Mindful Methods for Life program offerings and her book — “Life Falls Apart, but You Don’t Have To: Mindful Methods for Staying Calm in the Midst of Chaos” — Julie helps others bring more peace and wellness into their lives.

Julie is an attorney who began her serious study and investigation of mindfulness after graduating from the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program at the University of California, San Diego. She was trained by Kristin Neff, Christopher Germer, and UCSD as a Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher. She went on to study with Rick Hanson, becoming a graduate of his Positive Neuroplasticity Training Professional Course. Julie also completed Brené Brown’s Living Brave Semester. Her work has been featured by The Oprah Magazine, Costco Connection, AP News, NBC, CBS, Fox, The CW, and many more.
