Mindful Self-Esteem – Cultivating Self-Acceptance and Self-Compassion course at IMSB’s Saratoga location on Thursday nights has developed into a close-knit and dedicated group. The instructor, Dr. Janetti Marotta, skillfully leads the class with guided meditations, small group exercises, and easy homework assignments that help the participants to learn positive attributes and simultaneously build mindfulness skills and self-esteem. In-class exercises from the first session quickly ‘broke the ice’ and continue to support students as they grow in acceptance and compassion toward themselves and others.
