Be Free, Be Well, and Be Whole in their daily lives.
Reclaim your power, clarity, and ability to make wise choices so you're never a victim.
Discover the tools and resources to move out of “surviving” mode and into “thriving” mode.
Empower yourself to fully participate in your own healing, well-being, and highest quality of life experience.
We support and teach an orientation to life of being with whatever is happening for you in this moment - nothing to change or do other than just be with what is.
We encourage a turning towards any pain/trauma that you have experienced, and in that turning, beginning to see your experiences in a new way.
We guide you in the growth process of becoming empowered by all of your experiences - past, present, and future.
Trust as Self-Reliance
Letting Go / Letting Be

MWP defines mindfulness as paying attention to present moment experiences (physical, mental, emotional, environmental), while suspending as much judgement as possible to explore with openness and curiosity, without trying to fix or change anything, and accepting – without necessarily approving of – and being able to simply be with what is discovered.
Mindfulness provides effective, simple, secular evidence-based tools that empower you to change your relationship to unwanted thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations. It offers the possibility of no longer reacting to them in an automatic way, but rather of having the choice and ability to skillfully respond to them with acceptance and compassion.
Our approach to mindfulness is the most accessible and effective practice that we are aware of. It is so simple that, literally, a child can do it! At its core, it involves bringing your attention to what is happening in the present moment ~ in a nearly endless number of ways ~ both inside (physical sensations, emotions, thoughts) &/or outside (environment, other people), noticing when you get distracted, and then gently bringing your attention back to where you've chosen. It can be done on the bus, in the park, in your office, or wherever you may find yourself. Come join us at upcoming Events and we will guide you through a variety of mindfulness practices that you can then use in your daily life.
