Changing the world outside by changing the world within.
We facilitate raising awareness and improving life by encouraging a life-long mindfulness practice.
Well-designed, peer-reviewed studies have shown mindfulness to be a valid treatment for conditions including depression, chronic pain, and anxiety —with benefits for patients that are similar in effect to other existing treatments. Studies further suggest mindfulness increases attention, improves interpersonal relationships, strengthens compassion, and
confers a host of other benefits. We believe the benefits of a mindfulness practice help to reduce suffering, improve effectiveness and lead to long-term improvements in life.
"The faculty of voluntarily bringing back a wandering attention, over and over again, is the very root of judgment, character, and will... An education which should improve this faculty would be the education par excellence."
William James, psychologist.
Grow Through Mindfulness is working to take mindfulness and wisdom into classrooms to sow the seeds of self-awareness and cultivate kindness and compassion in young minds. After the successful launch of the program at Harper Elementary School in Wilmette, 2017, we are working on bringing the message into other local schools to sow the seeds of self-awareness and to cultivate kindness, resilience and compassion in our communities.
“Mindfulness has helped me calm down when I lose something. And I told my mom about it, and it helped my mom calm down.”
As we continue to Grow Through Mindfulness, we bring the messages of conscious communication and conscious conflict resolution into corporations. Is there an event at your workplace that we can lead? Can we plan activities to introduce your community to mindfulness, meditation and conscious action?
Email us. Together we will customize a program just for you!
