To make mindfulness more accessible, we’re expanding our personal programs Online, in North & East Toronto, Guelph, and Ottawa and our professional courses in and around Ontario, Québec, & BC.
We offer certified courses as well as teacher training in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC).
We work with more than 20 social service agencies and 7 healthcare partners to bring mindfulness-based interventions into underserved communities.
Increase attention, awareness and resilience at your workplace! We’ve brought mindfulness to organizations including The Department of National Defence, Corus Entertainment, TIFF, SickKids, YWCA, and the City of Toronto
“I suffered for years from a combination of pain, depression and sleep problems. I cycled back and forth between anti-depressants, sleeping aids and pain medications. My symptoms had become so tightly braided that nothing really helped. The self-knowledge and techniques I gained in the MBCT course has begun to loosen the knot — and has given me hope that I might be able to finally unravel it.”
– Grant Stewart
“I am not the same person as when I started. I am learning to trust my judgement and thoughts. I will continue to meditate on a daily basis and this has been so powerful and profound in my change that I will continue to pursue more avenues for learning about it.” – MBCT Participant
“Our partnership with the Centre for Mindfulness Studies provides an essential support for both our outpatient mental health and addiction patients and has been of particular value in training our clinical staff and evaluating group outcomes.”
– Dr. Jose Silveira, Psychiatrist-in-Chief & Medical Director of Mental Health and Addiction Programs, St. Joseph’s Health Centre
