GENERAL

INDIVIDUALLY CUSTOMIZED APPROACH

Dallas Mindfulness provides uniquely integrative opportunities for self-growth and actualization. Licensed clinical psychologist, Dr. Heather Robbins, and published author and national lecturer, James Robbins, combine their complimentary skills to provide flexible, individually customized learning formats. 

After meeting for an initial consultation, a curriculum of practices, study and holistic healing is agreed upon, as well as a reasonable rate structure.  This curriculum and fee format is custom-tailored to the individual's background, available time, financial resources and life goals.  As such, work with Dallas Mindfulness will likely integrate a number of traditional and contemporary disciplines.  Moreover, some courses of study will emphasize solely James or Heather Robbins, whereas others will involve a cooperative effort of their unique specialties.

All individual sessions are 45 minutes.  (Group study is also offered, although there are no openings at this time.)  Most commonly, individuals choose to meet once per week on a regular basis—although irregular meeting schedules are also accommodated.  Availability fluctuates considerably, although sessions are generally scheduled on Sunday afternoons, or weekdays, afternoons and evenings.

MEDITATION AND OTHER CLASSES          

LEARNING FORMATS

Dallas Mindfulness offers both structured, time-limited study formats (typically 6-12 weeks in duration, meeting once per week), and more loosely structured, ongoing study.  These classes may focus on a single practice or topic such as concentration meditation or Zen Buddhism or may involve an integration of a number of wisdom traditions and cotemporary disciplines.

After an initial consultation, an individually customized study plan and meeting schedule is mapped out, which may include any of the following elements, and more:

  • concentration meditation, for calming the restless mind

  • lucid dreaming practice, for maximizing the latent potential of the dream and sleep states

  • Zen or Tibetan Buddhist teachings

  • Taoist studies

  • integrative, cognitive-behavioral counseling

  • holistic, psychodynamic psychotherapy applications

  • contemplation practice, toward integrating the relaxed, meditative state with the activities of one's daily life

  • traditional or holistic couples' counseling

  • exercises for cultivating one's creativity and artistic expression

  • journaling techniques

  • automatic thought diaries

  • Native American paths and practices  

You need not know in advance which of these best suits your individual needs, backgrounds and goals.  Each of these factors will be discussed in the initial consultation, and the best program of holistic study and healing will be flexibly designed based on client input.

INITIAL CONSULTATION

The initial consultation is a 45 minute session, with a fee of $75.  In this initial meeting, the client's background, needs and life goals will be discussed, and a customized course of study will be agreed upon.  Rates for ongoing sessions will also be discussed at this initial consultation, and set based upon financial resources and other factors.  A regular or irregular meeting schedule will be determined to maximize both financial and time resources.

RATES

LEARNING FORMATS

It is the goal of Dallas Mindfulness to make its services available to all those sincerely interested in, and genuinely dedicated to, the path of spirituality and expanding awareness.  For this reason, fee structure is flexible, although only those individuals with true economic hardship and an authentic, manifest desire to grow will be accommodated in this manner.

The fee for the initial consultation is fixed at $75.  Fees for ongoing sessions will be set at this initial meeting.  It should be emphasized that individual fees are not set arbitrarily or subjectively, but are derived from a simple, "sliding scale" income based formula.
