"I began this course with a defined purpose; I was stuck re-visiting a toxic pattern in my environment. Through the practices, lessons contemplated, and efforts to improve and lessen the stressors that come from such encounters, I now “know” what has allowed me the freedom to move past these recurring patterns of negative exposure. The awareness of “surrender” in a mindful way - is a powerful, health altering, healing practice. Thank You!"

Amanda Pinero-Trombly, Counselor, Palmetto Senior High School

You are the world expert on your life, your body, and your mind, or at least you are in the best position to become that expert if you observe carefully. Part of the adventure of meditation is to use yourself as a laboratory to find out who you are and what you are capable of doing.”           Jon Kabat-Zinn - Full Catastrophe Living.

Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is unfolding in your life, moment-to-moment, with awareness, compassion, acceptance, and curiosity. This course is a secular, scientifically informed approach that operates in harmony with any belief system or spiritual background and can be practiced by people of all backgrounds. No prior experience is necessary.

Over three decades of scientific research at medical centers all over the world demonstrate that training in mindfulness can positively and profoundly affect participants’ ability to reduce medical symptoms and psychological distress while learning to live life with more enjoyment and balance.
