"Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment..." - Jon Kabat-Zinn
For most of us, when this happens, it's unexpected, maybe while walking on a mountain trail on a crisp autumn day, or being so focused in work or play that you are not thinking about past or future, or connecting with someone in a way that makes it seem like time is standing still. This state of being alive and whole in the present moment is available to all of us, but it typically eludes us, especially in times of difficulty and external pressures.
The programs and services described on this site are designed to help you experience mindfulness more consistently in life, work and relationship. Some resources provided here are opportunities for group learning and practice, some are individual in nature, and there are also many online resources, including video clips, interviews and excerpts which provide a good introduction to mindfulness.
The next MBSR class will begin September 10th (see MBSR Course for more about this class).
I hope you enjoy your exploration of this site and its resources... - Dave Potter
