1 Full Day + 6 Week Program
Mindfulness is a term used quite a lot in many therapeutic and/or spiritual environments. As a result, we can often misunderstand or draw conclusions around what is involved in a mindfulness program. Mindfulness can look different for everyone, and finding what mindfulness works for you can change your life.
At HARA, when we talk about mindfulness, we are talking about:
The basic human ability be fully present where you are, and the practice of resting our overthinking minds.
Our program, Finding Peace Within, focuses on bringing awareness to what mindfulness looks like for you, and what tools help support you to access this place of peace.
Throughout this program, we provide the opportunity for you to try out different approaches to help with everyday problems. Interwoven into this new skill is self-compassion, and understanding that, when trying something new, often we can become our harshest critic. During this program, we remember to be kind to yourself as you grow.
