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, calm and happiness. 

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!

Holding Space

One of the most beautiful gifts we can give the people in our lives is to hold space for them. This is a courageous and radical act of love. There is an “art” to holding space, learn more about how to hold sacred space for those you love in my latest blog . . .


The Really Big Picture

Many people learn to meditate to find tools to lower stress, focus attention, enhance performance and improve sleep. You can stop there and enjoy the health benefits of practicing meditation, and many people do. But, if you are interested in exploring and deepening your practice, you will find a deeply meaningful path that can help you feel greater peace and happiness.

Cheryl Vigder Brause, Mindfulness Instructor

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. I created 2bpresent to share with others the true gift of learning how to slow down and connect inward to your inner strengths, stillness and unlimited potential.  As the Co-Founder and Executive Director of 2bpresent, I am dedicated to helping people find calm, happiness and wellbeing in their very busy lives. I work with private clients and lead workshops in schools, businesses, retreat centers and conferences. I teach stress-reduction, self-compassion and resiliency techniques to professionals, including educators, attorneys and executives, as well as parents, college students, adolescents, and children and have lead workshops, spoken at conferences, consulted on panels and presented a variety of mindfulness sessions to many local, statewide and national audiences. 


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.

Diving Deeper

New Spring Classes forming Now!

Meditation offers us much more then stress reduction, focused attention or an escape from the busyness of our lives. Meditation can help us quiet our busy minds so that we can connect inward to a profound stillness where our insight and wisdom lie.

Perfect for those who may feel “stuck” in their meditation practice, need motivation or want to learn ways to explore and deepen your practice.
