When we look at the struggles we’re up against in this modern day and age, both as individuals and as a collective, it is easy to become overwhelmed with all of the challenges we face. It can be difficult to know how to stay balanced while the world shifts faster than it ever has before; however, through my own years of self-discovery, I’ve come to understand that what is most often missing from life situations that require healing and greater harmony is mindfulness.

Why is mindfulness so important?

Mindfulness is a bridge that grants us with a deeper understanding of whatever is currently present within and around us. With anxiety, depression, and stress prevalent across the globe (not to mention the countless environmental, political, and other societal issues that call for our heightened attention and wisdom), mindfulness practice has never been more necessary than it is today.

Mindfulness is of huge importance as it can help to:

  • Reduce anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges
  • Reduce one’s stress levels
  • Balance and regulate emotions
  • Improve immune system functioning
  • Improve sleep quality and reduce insomnia
  • Reduce the experience of pain
  • Increase self-compassion and empathy
  • Deepen one’s sense of meaning and connection to the world
  • Deepen one’s appreciation and respect for the natural environment
  • Improve communication and relationships
  • Heighten one’s capacity for focus and attention
  • Bring about a sense of harmony and understanding – within oneself, between individuals, and amongst various groups of people

“When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another – and ourselves.”

Why practice mindfulness?

By exploring and practicing a variety of mindfulness exercises, we enhance our understanding of everything that flows through and around us. Coming from a less-than-mindful background myself, having struggled personally with angst, anxiety, and lack of clarity and direction, I now embody a first-hand understanding of the power that mindfulness practice can have.

Many years ago, I travelled to Asia where I became deeply inspired by the masters and monks who I met along the path. Their presence was radiant and deeply touching. I thought to myself: By the time my years on this planet are up, I hope to have cultivated these skills of presence, care, and curiosity – as well as I possibly can.

Beginning then and there, I spent two years as a Buddhist Monk and then five years at Spirit Rock Meditation Center where I worked with Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, and other great teachers, deepening my understanding of how to integrate mindfulness into daily life.

Since then, I’ve worked individuals in one-on-one settings, in healthcare settings, in corporate settings, and in prisons. Through this work, I have seen the infinite ways that mindfulness can inspire, heal, and bring balance to both individuals and to our collective humanity. It is my mission to share mindfulness with as many people as possible, which is why I am committed to sharing these free mindfulness exercises with the world.

​Who are mindfulness exercises for?

Mindfulness exercises can be practiced by anyone, and they can be incorporated into a wide range of settings. Whether you’re a student, a teacher, a parent, or a CEO, mindfulness exercises are resources that can enhance wellbeing on both personal and collective levels.

  • ​Individuals – from beginners to advanced practitioners

Mindfulness exercises can be used by individuals looking to develop their awareness in their own way and on their own schedule. Free resources provide the guidance you need exactly when you need it.

  • ​Healthcare practitioners and wellness leaders – such as yoga and meditation teachers, nurses, psychotherapists, social workers, counsellors, psychologists, and therapists

Regardless of the type of health and wellness services you provide, mindfulness exercises can be incorporated to either enhance your client or patient’s self-awareness, or simply to enhance your own. As we develop our own mindful presence and awareness, we gain the skills required to connect deeply and profoundly with those we are working with.

  • ​Business professionals – such as human resource managers, coordinators, team leaders, consultants, CEOs, and small business owners

When brought into professional settings, mindfulness exercises enhance wellbeing of the workplace. Productivity, focus, creativity, and employee wellbeing increase, enhancing both individual and organizational success.

  • Educators – such as teachers, parents, program facilitators, school administrators, and camp counsellors

Mindfulness practice has great benefits in educational settings, whether conventional or unconventional. By offering these gifts to others, children included, we inspire a mindful future for the generations behind us.
