We all need more peace & quiet in our lives – less stress and more precious moments
to be present and enjoy where we are and who we are with. The good news - you don't have to radically change
your life to find greater balance, better health and more moments of clarity and calm. 

2bpresent is my journey to a more peaceful, joy-filled, healthier life
through the powerful practice of Mindfulness. 

Mindfulness works. It can change your life - it changed mine.
My goal is to share with you ways to be truly present and awake for your life.

I hope you will join me on this journey! You deserve it, your family deserves it and the
world deserves to have the real you (the calm, peaceful, joyful one) truly present in it!

Cheryl Vigder Brause, Mindfulness Instructor

Recently featured in Mindful Magazine, my path to being a certified mindfulness instructor has been quite a journey!  Once a corporate litigator and investment banker, I now write, speak and teach about the practice of mindfulness meditation and how you can use a few simple tools each day to create a more peaceful, joy-filled, healthier life. As the Co-Founder and Executive Director of 2bpresent, I have created hundreds of programs and taught mindfulness to thousands of adults, teens and children in corporations, schools and privately, helping people not only cope, but thrive.


2bpresent uses the latest research in Neuroscience and Psychology, combined with Mindful Awareness Practices to teach evidence-based, practical and accessible tools and techniques to help you lower your stress, increase your focus and find your happiness — no matter who you are and where you are.
