Make your difficult changes easier

Are you going through change?

What can this toolkit do for you?

Change can be tough and stressful. It's not easy to admit that we may be struggling, frustrated or worried.

Using change management (a profession that helps people through change) principles together with mindfulness and meditation, this toolkit contains specialized guided meditation recordings that can improve your experience through difficult changes in your life. 

This guides you through the change lifecycle, asks powerful questions, and leaves you with time for exploration, self-reflection and creative thinking.

You can create a better experience of your journey through difficult change by:

  • getting out of auto-pilot mode in how you react to difficult change,
  • raising your awareness of how the change is affecting you,
  • understanding what is challenging for you and why,
  • learning what acceptance really means and preparing you to move forward, and
  • committing to creating the experience you would rather have and being your own advocate.

Get to a better place.

Build your resilience to change, because change is constant.

Backed by research

ALL participants received positive benefits, regardless of their prior meditation experience!

"Dealing with change is constant for everyone. Wendy has done an excellent job providing tools for meeting change in healthy, balanced, much needed ways." Marc was the CEO of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, and has authored several books including "Know Yourself, Forget Yourself", "Less: Accomplishing More By Doing Less", and the upcoming "Seven Practices of a Mindful Leader".

The difference I’ve experienced in my change has been remarkable!


I am a pretty positive person, and although I was dealing with the change before using the meditation, it was definitely getting me down and interfering with my work. Now I am more intentional about my reactions and conscious of my emotions. It allowed me to stop being so reactive to my emotions, and become more contemplative and intentional. I've been letting others know about the great results.

Mindfulness is the missing piece

Steve Doherty, CCMP, Co-founder of Light Trail Consulting

As a senior change practitioner, I've spent over 20 years helping organizations, managers and individuals adapt to change. After participating in this Toolkit, I realized that the mindfulness component was a missing piece of the jigsaw. In a world that's running at 100 miles per hour, helping individuals slow their minds down to connect with themselves first is a key element in successful change. This experience helped me connect with myself and ultimately be a better change manager!

I found the root of the problem


By following the meditation, I found the root of the problem and the way I was feeling and behaving. It helped me understand and change my response to the change. It gave me the tools to cope. It gave me strength and turned negative emotions into positive ones.

Feeling confident and in charge of my situation


I found myself looking forward to doing the meditation daily and then felt empowered throughout my day knowing that I had done the meditation. I still use the meditation when I run into tough changes.
