Mindful Values

An evidence-based course to help you clarify what's most important and live with intentionality.

Live with purpose

Mindful Values is a first-of-its-kind program helping you connect with what truly matters in your life and take action towards living with purpose.

During the course, you will:

  • Clarify your values and what's most important to you
  • Learn to work with the barriers that come up around living out your values more fully
  • Test out new concrete ways to put values into practice in your day-to-day life

By the end of the course, you'll have a clearer sense of what matters most to you and how to embody that more fully in how you choose to live.

Evidence-based practices

Mindful Values draws inspiration and practices from three highly-researched interventions:

Each of these programs has been shown to improve functioning and overall wellbeing in healthy individuals as well as those dealing with mental health issues.

Mindful Values takes the best of these interventions and combines them to create a new course that helps you clarify and live in alignment with your values.

While we draw inspiration from the above interventions, Mindful Values is a mindfulness program, not therapy. It is not designed to diagnose or treat mental disorders.

Course Logistics

Mindful Values is a live, synchronous online program beginning in February 2023. It will run for 8 weeks.

Our group will meet for 90 minutes each week on Zoom, and there will be 30-45 minutes per day of home mindfulness practices and reflective exercises.

During our intro sessions, we'll give you an experiential taste of what the course will be like and answer any questions you might have. Intro sessions will take place on:

  • Jan 15 @ 6pm EST (Sunday)
  • Jan 24 @ 6pm EST (Tuesday)
  • Jan 31 @ 6pm EST (Tuesday)

Curriculum Overview

The week-over-week curriculum for the program will look something like this:

  1. What do you Value? - exploring the foundations of mindfulness and values clarification / discovery
  2. Toward vs. Away - orienting our lives around moving toward meaning vs. avoiding fear or discomfort
  3. Defusion - learning how to work skillfully with the thoughts that lead us away from meaningful living
  4. Pain and Values - opening to discomfort in the service of moving toward what we care about
  5. Values and the Self - noticing where self-stories may be limiting us, and learning to hold them lightly and with compassion
  6. Values vs. Goals - using values to focus on the meaning in the journey, not just the destination
  7. Values in Practice - experimenting with new ways to move toward meaning in your day-to-day life
  8. Integration - how to continue values work on your own after the course ends.

About me

I'm Casey, a founder and executive coach based in NYC.

I got into meditation after taking an 8-week MBSR class in 2013, and have taken mindfulness teacher-trainings through Brown and UPenn. I'm currently enrolled in UCSD's MBSR teacher-training pathway.

In 2020, I discovered Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) through its research on values and started working in consultation with several psychologists to adapt it to the world of executive coaching.

I created Mindful Values as an outgrowth of my belief in the power of mindfulness interventions and ACT's theory around values-based living. It is the program I wish I'd had when I first started meditating a decade ago.

Outside of coaching, I spend my time writing and working on projects around secular meaning-making.

In their words...

"I'd recommend Casey's retreats to anyone, especially founders worried about how to align their company to their values and trying to figure out their next steps."

"Casey is a master at cutting to the core of what matters and getting you to think differently about things that have been personal obstacles for a while."

"Casey's retreat was an incredible experience– it was rejuvenating and contemplative, and allowed me to process a lot of the last several months of being a founder.”
