The statistics are staggering. The number of people suffering from stress-related issues is fast approaching 100%. According to the American Psychological Association reports, 8 out of 10 people are experiencing some form of physical and/or emotional issues related to stress. Mindfulness is a powerful, scientifically proven resource for breaking free from harmful emotional ruts and mindless habits in order to live with full awareness and greater freedom.

"We can only change that which
we are first aware of"

Mindfulness is a life preserver of resilience that increases our ability to recognize our internal experience of mind, body, and thought. This recognition can lead to greater clarity of thought, less chaos in our day-to-day lives, and allows us to learn to direct where we place our focus and attention.

Exploring concepts such as: acceptance, patience, non-judging, non-striving, trust, letting go/letting be, gratitude and generosity can lead to self-discovery, personal growth, and inner healing.

Mindfulness is a practice in ‘being’ rather than one more thing that needs doing.

The 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course is appropriate for anyone wanting to explore mindfulness and its potential benefits in their lives.

The course is designed to introduce mindfulness through a variety of practices, practical tips, exercises, and resources. Sessions include the following topics:
