Integrating Mindfulness in Mental Health Education
Because our work with people is seated in the practice of Mindfulness, we believe that:
- Mental health starts with an integration of a sound body and mind
- Life’s process is simple, repetitive and can be mastered through action
- Action determines success and success motivates action
An effective interplay between action and success requires:
- Awareness, pursuit and acceptance of reality without judging
- Self-reflection, honesty and dedication
- Knowing life’s personal relevance
- Learning from success and failure
- Planning for the future
- Creating a life worth living by interacting, participating, and communicating
- And, a sustained effort, moment to moment
Integrated Personal Growth
- Self-improvement emerges from…
- Knowing through awareness…
- Understanding through words…
- Accomplishment through action.
- Understanding through words…
- Knowing through awareness…
