For 2500 years, the wisdom teachings of the East have utilized what their texts refer to as "skillful methods" for the study and transformation of the mind/body. Mindfulness Training provides instruction in meditation and mind-body healing from both a psychological and spiritual perspective. The focus is on the practice, experience and benefits of meditation and self-healing in daily life. Mindfulness meditation helps to cultivate self-regulation through relaxation and the development of attention skills. Training in mindfulness facilitates awareness of the inner resources of the Core Self—trust, comfort, time and curiosity—for the activation of the healthy and creative aspects of the unconscious mind. This promotes insight, wellness and individuation.

Through mindfulness one can develop mindstrength, the ability to respond with awareness instead of reaction and knowing how to make everyone around them feel recognized, affirmed and valued. Mindfulness provides one with clarity and calm in a crisis, protecting them from the temptation to panic and jump from one bad situation to another or to blame others for the crisis and avoid looking at their role in it; plus it gives one the power to change it. Mindful communication is an extraordinary tool for problem solving. It allows one to tolerate the discomfort of confrontation with others and the embarrassment of discovering how they might have contributed to the problem. Mindfulness also allows one to find their creativity and resourcefulness, so that they can approach the situation differently and perhaps transform it. It helps one to easily tap into their core creativity to solve problems and achieve goals.
