Mindfulness is not a religious belief system.  Mindfulness is an outlook of seeing what is here, now in the present.  That’s it.  Don’t over-complicate it or add any unnecessary layers. Mindfulness is experiencing this moment without thoughts of the past or the future.  

As we age, we can build up a baggage around us and this interferes with our ability to experience the simple joy of the moment.  So, the answer is to practice mindfulness and re-learn how to stop that mind-chatter and allow us to simply breathe, enjoy and relax in the moment.

See how the brain actually changes after a period of mindfulness?  Scientific studies prove the benefits of mindfulness for Seniors are an improved sense of connectedness as well as decreases in loneliness.

Seniors reported improved mood, less hospitalizations, reduced depression., improving functional fitness and vascular reactivity.  Seniors also reported better relationships with caregivers, staff and family.

Mindfulness is a simple, accessible and overall positive activity for seniors – perhaps it should be a question of why aren’t all seniors not practicing mindfulness?

What is MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction)?

MindBodyCalm offers a mindfulness training program for the corporate and non-government sectors.  Participants are first made of aware of, and then supported through learning modules designed to make mindfulness accessible in everyday life.  
Put simply, this means applying the principles of mindfulness throughout the workday for a more harmonious environment.  This means happier staff, satisfied clients and less conflict resolution for management.

How does the course operate?

The 8 week Mindfulness Training Course operates at your workplace, at hours convenient to your workflow and existing practices.  Successfully integrating the mindfulness class into the first hour of team meetings, or even as an add on after a lunch break is advised.

Also available are the half day and full day workshops for a immersive introduction to mindfulness – although the weekly repetition is preferable to establish sustainable habits in participants.
