Mindful Practice Inc.
Mindful Magazine defines mindfulness as, “The basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.” Mindfulness helps us to live more in line with our values.
Mindful Practice Inc. specializes in providing mindfulness-based programs.
Whatever it is that stops you from living a full life, we can help. Using a holistic approach to treatment, we focus on embodied mindfulness practices for growth, healing, and wellness. When people are embodied, connected, and balanced in body, mind, heart, and spirit they thrive.
We offer a broad range of mindfulness-based services to help you better cope with difficulties (the challenges of stress, anxiety, trauma, low self-esteem, relationship disruptions, poor attention and concentration, lack of focus, and chronic pain) in daily life.
But it’s not just stopping the difficult; it’s bringing in the positive. We place emphasis on skills to cultivate positive emotions for a happier, healthier, more peaceful life; more satisfying, connected relationships; and enhanced performance coupled with authentic purpose.
And embodied mindfulness practices improve attention, concentration, and focus. We teach embodied mindfulness practices to help people improve their focus; achieve their goals, both personal and professional; and enhance their performance. Living your best life ultimately means discovering and living consistent with your values (finding your authentic purpose and doing your best).

Family life can be chaotic and messy in our technological and fast-paced world we can become disconnected from ourselves, our families, and our heritage . If we, as parents, aren’t present with our children, they can easily become more connected to their peers or digital devices in negative ways—getting their values from peer culture and social media rather than parents and ancestors. This also happens to parents. This disconnection undermines family wellbeing, and is what modern science calls the main risk factor for our children. Mindful Families is a journey about connection and protection for all ages. When families are mindful together they stay connected, they have a greater sense of wellbeing, and they are happier. Through mindfulness practices, storytelling and improv, personal anecdotes, and nature activities families learn processes to cultivate family joy, family peacemaking, and optimal family rhythm. Throughout the journey there are four cornerstones of connection that are easily lost in modern society. These include connection to each other, ancestors, community, and nature. These cornerstones of connection are integral to happiness and wellbeing, and reawaken healthy instinctual knowledge.
Mindful Teens helps 13-18-year-olds learn simple, yet effective mindfulness practices.
