Mindful Presence

Learning to practice mindfulness provides a way of relating directly with whatever is happening in your life It's a way of taking charge of your life by consciously and systematically noticing and responding to your own stress, pain, challenges, and demands in way that allows you to live better.

This starts with cultivating present-moment attention in an open, nonjudgmental way. Our program is nonsectarian, based on scientific study, and in harmony with any faith-based tradition. 

What is Mindfulness?

The Science of Mindfulness:


  • 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 attitude or 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 suffering you are experiencing.
  • Improved sense of well-being:  Learn how to be present and appreciate the simple pleasures of everyday life, connect with yourself, and the experience of being alive
