Introduction to Mindfulness


A free virtual 4-week mindfulness education and skills development program for the patient community of the Belleville Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic!

Start your mindfulness journey by learning tools for managing stress and increasing your well-being!

The Introduction to Mindfulness program is an online, interactive 4-session program that will teach you about evidence-based mindfulness practices through experiential learning, discussions, and practices. Each of the four 1-hour sessions will focus on exploring how mindfulness and compassion-based practices can assist with working with stress more skillfully. Outcomes from research on mindfulness have shown to assist people with improved sleep, fewer reports of subjective experiences of pain, improved quality of life, improved stress management, and overall wellness.

This workshop is led by experienced healthcare and advanced mindfulness professionals using evidence-based trauma-informed methods to help you develop awareness to be more resilient in your everyday life.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Learn what mindfulness is and what it is not

  • Learn how to practice mindfulness and compassion-based practices with feedback and guidance

  • Learn mindfulness skills and their direct application to daily life

  • Receive support from skilled teachers around incorporating mindfulness meditation and practices
