Who We Are
Mindfulness at Centrepointe is an inclusive and welcoming space that offers the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, an evidence-based program that was created by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. In addition to teaching MBSR, we offer customized mindfulness presentations and workshops tailored to the needs of a variety of populations as well as individual counselling sessions available upon request.
Mindfulness at Centrepointe is proud to call Ottawa home and as leaders we understand the importance of giving back for positive changes within our community.
I have so far participated in two workshops at Mindfulness at Centrepointe and cannot wait to do more! I was touched by how caring, knowledgeable and understanding all the facilitators were. I gained practical tips for everyday life which I can apply to be more present with my family, be better prepared to face challenges of my demanding career, and enjoy this journey.
Centrepointe is very lucky to have such a center. I attended an introductory session and was so impressed with what I learned I signed up for a nine week course. Already I can see that I will benefit in ways I could not have imagined. The instructors are passionate, caring, and knowledgeable. So far I have had lessons from Carole, Sabina and Raman. I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't benefit from learning mindfulness."
I absolutely loved this nine week course. I learnt many things. It is a combo of mindfulness, yoga and meditation along with tutorials. I have left with compassion and a greater loving sense of self, courage and healthful attitude towards life. I would thoroughly recommend this course and it's staff welcoming, warm and caring. Thank you for a day at a time.
