Improving Quality of Life

6-Week Mindfulness Based Program

Mindfulness is the gentle effort to be continuously and consistently present with experience. In essence, mindfulness involves paying attention “on purpose”. Mindfulness involves a conscious direction of our awareness.

Learning a mindfulness based approach allows you to:
  • Understand why you feel the way you do
  • Gain control of your emotions — both the positive and negative ones
  • Retrain your mind to think and respond more positively
  • Deal more effectively with anxiety associated with your current life events
  • Reduce stress
  • Calm your mind and let go of unhealthy thoughts
  • Feel good about yourself and extend those feelings to someone else
  • Enhance your relationships
