OUR APPROACH

MINDFULNESS

Learning and embodying mindfulness is an essential practice for intentional living, and a cornerstone of our approach. First-hand experience is the best way to learn mindfulness. Our teachings and programs stem directly from the foundational practice of Mindfulness Meditation and focus on its’ practical application to everyday life.

What is mindfulness?

Being mindful is being aware of your present moment experience in a nonjudgmental manner. By observing both your internal and external experiences ‘in the moment’ you are stepping back and watching thoughts, feelings and sensations as they arise, without an expectation or mandate to change them. Mindfulness can be thought of as a way of experiencing the world not something that you ‘do’.

SCIENCE

We embrace and implement a science-based approach to wellness. Our programs incorporate a diversity of field research and practices - from neuroscience and psychology to evidence-based techniques in mindfulness and compassion - to offer you an integrative method for making the most effective wellness-informed decisions.

Science-based approach:

Empirical evidence shows that mindfulness-based interventions change brain structure and function, facilitate positive change and promote fuller engagement with life. With experience, mindfulness and compassion practice are shown to improve focus, working memory and reduce stress and negative affect (low mood states) [1]. Positive psychology and life coaching complement our approach by emphasizing skill development in value-identification [2].

COMPASSION

Living with compassion generates affirming thoughts & promotes a positive state of mind. We enhance the qualities of compassion - presence, connectedness & kindness - as foundations for intentional living. They're integrated into all our offerings to encourage the development of meaningful relationships with self & others.

What is compassion?

Compassion is an emotional response combined with an authentic desire to help when one perceives the suffering of another. Being compassionate is being present, connected and loving toward yourself and others and is fostered by honouring and accepting everyone’s humanness, without criticism or judgment.

 We demonstrate the most practical ways to integrate our approach into actionable, positive results in both professional and personal lives.
