Mindfulness for Health

Meditation is a powerful tool for allowing us to better connect with the present moment. Often times we wind up focusing too much on the past, worrying excessively about the future, or simply rushing mindlessly through our days, that we fail to be truly engaged in life, which is happening now.

Mindfulness Meditation helps us to cultivate a certain presence, or mindfulness, which allows us to fully accept the present moment without judgement. Practicing mindfulness has an enormously beneficial effect on our overall well-being; improving both our physical and mental health.

We invite you to join us for our Mindfulness for Health program, led by our very own Mental Health Counsellors.  In this 4-part workshop series, you will be guided through your practice, and gain a deeper understanding of mindfulness, meditation, and how you can start truly transforming your health today.

Information Session

Tuesday March 13 @ 11am – 12:30pm

Program Dates

Program runs for 4-weeks (1 session/week).
