• What is Mindfulness?

    IMG_20131204_113634314-editMindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.”  Jon Kabat-Zinn, Founder Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

    Mindfulness is a way of being that is learned and cultivated through practice. Mindfulness involves increasing awareness of thought and action. Mental awareness of one’s present thoughts, body sensations, emotions, and environment enable conscious consideration of one’s responses to stimulus.

    At Mindful Impact we teach, promote, and support mindfulness for adults and children, in business and school, for the purpose of stress reduction, improved health, increased effectiveness and productivity, and enhanced satisfaction with work and life.

What makes Mindful Impact unique?

Mindful Impact serves both ends of the economic spectrum. Our principals have worked in corporate environments, inner-city communities, and athletics. Across these lines, the extraordinary discovery is that the same tool (delivered differently) is effective for a CEO of a Fortune 500 company, a youth leader, a school principal, an athlete or a young child.

The income generated from corporations and private entities helps support projects for under-served and under-funded organizations and schools. Populations we serve include corporate executives, administrators, and staff, attorneys, educators and students, athletes, under-served youth, low-income seniors, and families. Empowerment is an important aspect of our work. In addition to teaching mindfulness, one of our goals is to train members of the community to teach mindfulness. This practice will spread mindfulness widely, ensuring the sustainability of the work and its benefits.
