Mindfulness Meditation: Living in the Now!


Mindfulness is an ability to focus and stay in the present moment. With practice, you too can train yourself to increase the amount of time spent in the moment, versus ruminating the past or fretting future events that may never develop. Time is perhaps your greatest resource. Learn to invest time in the here and now, where it may be best leveraged to your advantage.

The evidence of life improvements stemming from meditation has steadily grown and accumulated over the past 4-5 decades. The “off the cushion” benefits are simply amazing. So much so, that meditation instruction is offered to diverse groups such as elementary through college students, police officers, active military personal and veterans, prison populations and athletes. It is recognized as a way to create a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life. In clinical settings, it is added to treatments for anxiety, depression, PTSD, immune system and numerous stress related conditions.

In this workshop, Paul offers highlights from and 8-part meditation series he developed and instructs. The exercises are progressively designed to ratchet down overcharged 21 st century nervous systems so that participants can easily begin a sitting practice. He uses his hypnotherapy skills to help participants develop this life positive habit and increase their motivation to stay with it.

Bring firm meditation cushions and/or folded blankets to help maintain proper meditation posture. Chairs will be available for those unable to sit restfully on the ground. Wear loose comfortable clothing.


Paul DiFranco


Through his company, Holistic Pathways, Paul offers hypnotherapy, mindfulness meditation and yoga. With these, he assists individuals and groups to optimize their health, performance and in some cases make life-changing transformations. All three complementary practices share the ability to align the mind, body, and spirit towards a common purpose.

Paul has dedicated his life to exploring mind-body-spirit applications, and has developed programs for the holistically minded. He holds a MLHR from The Ohio State University, a BA in Psychology from Baldwin Wallace University, and has been trained in Heart–Centered Hypnotherapy at the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Integrative Medicine.
