Changing the world outside by changing the world within.
We value raising awareness and improving life by facilitating mindfulness and encouraging a commitment to live life mindfully, moment-by-moment, with a unique awareness and an open curiosity to all that is and all that can be.
We achieve our mission by teaching with integrity, compassion and love, by nurturing personal and mutually beneficial relationships with community partners, and with the cherished support of friends and contributors.
Who We Are
WE ARE a group of passionate, hard-working members dedicated to the mission of bringing about change in the world. We believe that the practice of mindfulness propels positive societal change through compassion.
Where We Work
Our motto is “Mindfulness wherever It takes us!” We see a great need to help others explore the world within. We work with schools, non-profit organizations, and workplaces. We are capable and ready to work with your community.
We believe nurturing a mindful life creates deep awareness and compassion. There is an avalanche of excellent research by leading academic institutions that corroborates this belief! Creating a mindful life, with guidance from a skilled and compassionate mindfulness facilitator, leads to a mindful community.
What We Do
We have created our own unique program drawing on contemplative teachings from ancient traditions combined with leading research and best practices in the fields of mindfulness, social emotional learning, cognitive neuroscience, psychology and mental health to make our programs effective and current.
How We Do It
Mindfulness is the cultivation of an attitude.
It is not a TO-DO list, rather a TO-BE list.
To be PRESENT.
To be OPEN.
To be FEARLESS.
Mindfulness can be learned, practiced and taught. There are simple and practical exercises and helpful ways to facilitate the changing of thought patterns that have been scientifically proven to create a treasure trove of benefits.
Learn to FOCUS through practices that bring one's attention to the present moment. By taking our attention off past-future thoughts, regrets and worries, we no longer lose our energy and health.
Learn to OBSERVE your life from a different perspective by depersonalizing unpleasant thoughts and feelings, even physical sensations, and seeing them as fleeting.
Learn in COMMUNITY. When people in a group talk about how they did with what they learned it helps everyone to grow. Grow Through Mindfulness in fact. And feel the support of a mindful community.
Why Do We Do It
And lastly WHY do we do this? It’s all about our MISSION. Changing the world outside by changing the world within.
Mindfulness leads to ENGAGEMENT. When we start to see, and care, and recognize and change our own patterns, and address our own stress, we naturally get excited about it and want to help others. That’s why at the end of our lessons we encourage becoming involved in community service to bring about the change you want to see in the world. Also, we understand that true happiness is not an individual matter, in the words of the Mindfulness Master Thich Nhat Hanh. As we share the joy, our own joy and well-being is enhanced.

Mindfulness has helped me because when my brother made me mad I took a belly breath and it made me brave and calm down.
