A place for learning, growing and healing....
If you want to learn how to take better care of yourself and to discover a deeper sense of ease and peace of mind—and if you are willing to actively engage in these experiential and transformative programs, we welcome you.
Our Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program is modeled directly on the MBSR program started by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979. Doug has been trained by the Center for Mindfulness, started by Jon Kabat-Zinn, which ensures you receive the program that has been extensively researched to effectively mobilize and cultivate your inner resources for handling the demands, challenges, and stressors of your life. The program teaches principles and practices that enable participants to consciously respond rather than to react when faced with challenges. Mindful awareness is the core capacity developed in this program.
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is the program developed by Christopher Germer and the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff. The program teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care, and understanding leading to self-compassion.
Both MBSR and MSC are grounded in the rapidly growing field of mindfulness research that shows mindfulness as an important and effective resource for discovering greater wellbeing, health and vitality in your life.
