Befriending the present! Befriending yourself!

About us

MindfulPath aims to provide workshops and courses to support your personal journey in mindfulness and self-compassion to bring more balance and ease stress in your life. We bring together a team of enthusiastic specifically trained teachers in Mindfulness and Self-Compassion by the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion and the UC San Diego Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute. 

The teachers in addition to extensive professional training, have each many years of personal practice in Meditation, Mindfulness and Self-Compassion. They are secular in their approach and bear witness to the balance, strength and resilience that those practices have to offer, especially, in times of crisis in their own life.  

Mindfulness and Self-Compassion allow us to grow by enriching our lives with self-kindness: promoting awareness and self-acceptance, regulating stress and emotion as well as extending our ability to savour more deeply the positive moments, to over shadow the difficult times and magnify the joy of living.  Each day we can begin again, anew, revitalizing our body, mind and heart, to find renewed vitality and purpose.
