We invite you to Mindfulness Challenge 2019, the Centre's "meditate-athon" to bring sustainable mindfulness programs to disadvantaged communities.
Our theme this year is "Clear Mind - Open Heart" with lead teacher Susan Woods, one of the most skilled and sought-after mindfulness teacher trainers in North America. Susan has a unique ability to hold a loving and compassionate space.
As Susan says, "a clear mind is a way of being with the movement of thoughts, emotions and body sensations with kindness, awareness, and curiosity. An open heart is one that can hold our own suffering, and the suffering of others, with openness, compassion and love."

There are many reasons why more and more people are becoming interested in the practice of mindfulness meditation. Much of this increased interest is being fueled by results from scientific and clinical studies that are increasing our understanding of how the practice of mindfulness can help with stress, chronic illnesses and specific mental health issues such as depression, prolonged periods of sadness and anxiety.
Here is a brief video about the MBCT book I co-authored with two wonderful colleagues, Pat Rockman and Evan Collins.
