About Us

 

We offer programs and services designed to support health and well-being through cultivation of a kinder, more compassionate relationship with ourselves, our struggles and each other. 

We embrace a holistic, bio-psycho-social perspective of health and are informed by the compelling research that shows Self-Compassion is strongly associated with fewer negative states like depression, anxiety, stress, shame and negative body image, and more positive states like happiness, optimism, self-care, life and relationship satisfaction.

Mindfulness and Self-Compassion are the foundation of our lives and all our programs and services.  Welcome.
