This course has been proven effective worldwide. It is based on the core principles found within Jon Kabat Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course (MBSR) and Mark Williams’ Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy course (MBCT), however the weekly training sessions and home practices are shorter to be more accessible and affordable.   MBSR and MBCT are the two most well-researched and evidence-based mindfulness programs available.  For many the course can lead to immediate and striking results: feeling happier, calmer, more focused, sleeping better, as well improving connection and communication for better relationships. 

8-week Course Fees:  $349 

 

Course Schedule:

Session 1:  Wed. Evenings 6:30-8:15pm – 

Session 2:  Thur. Mornings 11am -12:30pm  

You may have heard of mindfulness from your doctor or have seen some of the recent media coverage. A great deal of this interest is the result of the large body of research in neuroscience from Harvard, U of Mass, Oxford, Cambridge, Stanford and other institutions regarding the wide-reaching benefits of mindfulness.

  • resiliency to stress
  • peak-performance
  • reduced fatigue, anxiety, depression, better sleep
  • focus and concentration skills
  • emotional agility and intelligence
  • productive communication skills
  • creativity and innovation
  • levels of happiness, calmness, fulfillment from life
  • compassion and empathy skills

When we practice mindfulness, we’re modelling one of the greatest life skills. Just ONE person practicing mindfulness can calm the workplace, the whole house, the whole classroom. Mindfulness calms without words.

As adults, if we aren’t practicing mindfulness ourselves, we can’t teach it to our children. This doesn’t mean they have to see us meditating every day, but it does mean we need personal experience with the challenges and benefits of mindfulness, understanding it fully before we can teach it to others and helping create mindful leaders of the future.
