Introduction to Mindfulness

It gives me great please to announce the launch of another introductory course on Mindfulness.

Over the last decade, the science of mindfulness has become a major topic of research in different fields, from psychology to medicine, to neurology, education, business, and technology.

The evidence-based results of the application of mindfulness practices to our daily life are multi-fold and very compelling in nature. They reveal that indeed, even just a few minutes of dedicated daily practice can bring upon benefits like:

  • Stress reduction
  • Greater sense of self-awareness
  • Improved overall sense of well-being
  • Improved immune responses
  • Better concentration and focus
  • Greater sense of emotional well-being

“The energies of mindfulness, concentration and insight can liberate us from our anxiety and worries. We let go of the past and the future, and come in touch with the wonders of the present.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Having taught meditation for over six years, and practiced for over 15, has taught me that having a good foundation is essential to delivering the best results possible, and being able to establish a sustainable long-term practice.

Hence, I invite you to join us on this six-week journey of enhancement of your well-being by beginning and establishing the life-changing practice of mindfulness.

Here are the course details:
