Coronavirus Update for the Centre for Mindfulness Studies Community
March 16, 2020 – As the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve and the situation rapidly changes, the Centre for Mindfulness Studies is taking a responsible approach to ensure the health and safety of our clients, staff, faculty, visitors, and community.
To address the challenge that Covid-19 poses and to continue to support the mental health and well-being of our community, we will be taking these immediate steps:
- We will be moving all current and upcoming programs to our online platform. This will have minimal impact on clients who will be able to access the content “live” from the comfort and safety of their homes.
- Current program participants will be contacted with further details.
- All future programs will be run online until further notice.
- Our office will be open virtually with staff working remotely.
We understand that this is an extraordinary situation for everyone, and as a mental health charity, we need to ensure that we can continue to bring these much-needed programs to help those suffering from depression, stress, and anxiety.
Mindfulness and compassion-based modalities can help us to take care of ourselves and each other, particularly during these stressful times. During this period of uncertainty, we can learn to manage our reactions, recognizing when there is distress, take a breath and proceed into the next moment with generosity.
In this challenging time join us in coming together and supporting each other and our communities.
