A few of my favourite quotes speak to what mindfulness means to me ...

"... the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally"

- Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction 


"... the willingness and capacity to be equally near all events and experiences with kindness, curiosity and discernment"

- Christine Feldman, internationally recognized mindfulness teacher

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an effective, scientifically researched method for reducing physical and psychological suffering while building resilience, balance and peace of mind.

Learning to practice mindfulness provides a way of relating directly with whatever is happening in your life, a way of taking charge of your life, of consciously and systematically noticing and responding to your own stress and pain, and to the challenges and demands of living. This starts with cultivating present-moment attention in an open, nonjudgmental way. MBSR is a nonsectarian, scientifically researched approach.


Scientific research at medical and research centres around the world suggests that MBSR can positively and often profoundly affect participants' lives.

  • stress reduction

  • decreased medical symptoms

  • improved self-care

  • greater ability to manage anxiety and depression

  • loosening of the grip of negative habits and thinking

  • improvement in symptoms of burnout

  • clearer recognition of when your mood is beginning to change so you can become less reactive

  • discovery that difficult and unwanted thoughts and feelings can be seen from an altogether different perspective - a perspective that brings with it a sense of compassion and less judgment to the distress you are experiencing

  • improved sense of well-being and learning how to be present and appreciate the simple pleasures of everyday life, connect with yourself and others, and the experience of being alive
