Course Details

Now more than ever, our 5 Session Fundamentals of Mindful Well-Being series provides timely resources to support you, your family, your school, and your workplace.

Using neuro-scientific research as our guide, our courses are designed to help you build and practice the skills necessary to reduce stress and burn-out, build resilience, and cultivate kinder, more compassionate relationships and communities. 

  • Learn to develop nurturing habits rather than feeling progressively drained from wrestling with recurring thoughts and strong emotions.
  • Practice guiding your attention to increase mental clarity, inner stability, creativity, and focus.
  • Incorporate purposeful pauses to cope with stress, reduce bias and reactivity, and lay the foundation for more meaningful and connected relationships.
  • Learn how qualities such as happiness, generosity, compassion and kindness can be hardwired by harnessing the power of neuroplasticity.
  • Create a plan for your personal well-being based on your values and motivations, and observe the ripple effect your best self has on those around you.

Incorporating mindfulness-based practices in our lives has been shown to positively influence our mental and physical health.

It’s more than a feel-good idea.

World-renowned neuroscientist Dr. Richard Davidson and his team at the Center for Healthy Minds have demonstrated through brain imaging studies that the practice of mindfulness leads to changes in the way the brain functions and even in the physical structure of the brain. Research has found a host of benefits such as: reduction in pain, anxiety, depression, and the stress response and increased happiness, and compassion for oneself and others.
