Drawing from years of training, personal practice, and application in daily life, we provide participants with learning and skills that are practical, accessible, and universal. This approach brings mindfulness training, whether in an introductory course or a year-long training, to be meaningful, beneficial, and available to a wide audience.
Practical – An approach to engaging in a mindful life that is effective and can be put into practice right away. We take your mindfulness practice off the cushion and into your everyday life and daily mental thought processes.
Accessible – Although our roots lie in both ancient traditions and contemporary neuropsychology, we use the language of the everyday practitioner and examples from your daily life to illustrate the principles and practices of mindful living.
Universal – An inclusive program that can benefit anyone regardless of their culture, religion, spiritual path, or philosophy. It is our firm conviction that everyone, regardless of race, religion, gender, or orientation, deserves to live a meaningful and happy life. Referencing the rich context of the Three Higher Trainings (ethics, concentration, and wisdom) of Buddhism in which mindfulness was originally taught, the Mindful Life Program serves to maintain the substance of the entire teaching as a program that is accessible to all using a universal secular approach.
