Welcome to The Mindfulness Journal, a dedicated space where we reflect on various aspects of mindfulness practice and ways of integrating it into daily life. Our aim is to provide you with practical tools, heartfelt stories and insightful wisdom that will deepen and enrich your own mindfulness practice.

These journal posts are offered as a companion piece to the live topical sessions held each month. These sessions provide a valuable opportunity to engage with the material in a dynamic way through a short teaching, often a guided mindfulness practice, and an opportunity to share your experience with the practice and ask questions. If you're unable to attend, don’t worry! We record the teaching and guided meditation portions for you to access later.

We sincerely hope that The Mindfulness Journal becomes an ongoing resource for you. To stay updated with our upcoming events and to reserve your spot in the topical sessions, please click here for the schedule and registration details.
