Mindfulness Foundations

A SCIENCE BASED MINDFULNESS TRAINING THAT CHANGES LIVES IN 8 WEEKS

“Mindfulness practice means that we commit fully in each moment to be present; inviting ourselves to interface with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mindfulness, and equanimity right here and right now.”

John Kabat - Zinn

Research has shown that people who are more mindful are generally happier and report less anxiety, symptoms of depression, anger, and worries. A higher degree of mindfulness is also associated with reduced stress and increased gratitude, hope, and vitality.

So if practicing mindfulness holds such powerful potential for our wellbeing, why aren’t we all doing it every day? The reason is often that we need more guidance and support than simply downloading an app. We need to better understand the underlying processes and research behind mindfulness.

Our new program Mindfulness Foundations is designed to walk you through everything you need to fully understand mindfulness and experience the profound effects it can have on your life.
