"What study after study shows is that meditation and mindfulness training profoundly affects every aspect of our lives - our bodies, minds, physical health, and our emotional and spiritual well-being. When you consider all the benefits of meditation ... it's not an exaggeration to call meditation a miracle drug."
- Arianna Huffington, Thrive
Introduction to Mindfulness
Learn the basics of mindfulness
Mindfulness meditation may be described as practicing a moment to moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment without judgment. There is an ever-growing body of empirical evidence showing that mindfulness can help us regulate our mood and thoughts, build resilience in the face of stress and challenges, increase productivity, decrease pain, and cultivate calm and ease in our lives.
Evidence-based parenting for high stress times
Research tells us that a parent’s ability to manage their own stress is one of the most important factors for children’s success and happiness! Mindful parenting combines hands-on exercises and education about stress, the neuroscience, parenting, and mindfulness to help parents bring full awareness to raising children with compassion and wisdom.
