basics to build a strong
foundation to learn.
In this introduction session, we'll learn the practice of mindfulness and its application to living a healthier life.
The sessions will include mindfulness meditations, exercises and discussion to develop awareness skills for becoming more resilient in the face of everyday challenges.
We invite new clients to book a complimentary consultation and
We'll use this time to get to know each other. The initial consultation is a conversation between facilitator and the client.
In our conversation, we'll complete the intake process and discuss what's the right approach at this time. It's also an opportunity to ask any questions, and to learn more about mindfulness.
These sessions will develop self- awareness, cultivate resilience and compassion, and allow for healthier relationships to develop as a result. Sessions will be customized, and adapted to the individual according to their interests and needs, and can grow and change with them.
"Practicing with a virtual community during the pandemic has been such a meaningful and rewarding experience. It's allowed me to calm my nerves and control my anxiety during these often uncertain times."
"I had trouble building mindfulness and meditation into my daily routine but Jeremy has made it easy. Being able to take some time for my self care in this way has been incredibly rewarding. Being part of this community has benefitted my mental health and I'm truly thankful for that."

I've been attending the mindfulness sessions regularly for over a year. Jeremy's guidance is soothing, non-judgemental, and keeps me focussed on the present moment. The sessions have been an oasis of calm and community during the pandemic. Meditating with a group, even over Zoom has helped me to keep my mindfulness practice going. I know that whenever I need the support, Jeremy and the group will be there for me.

“The meditations provided coherence and structure to my day. It allowed me to begin a formal meditation practice which I could not accomplish on my own. Also, it provided a space of acceptance and mutual striving towards a more mindful relationship with oneself.
MYRIAM MONGRAIN - YORK UNIVERSITY, PSYCHOLOGY PROFESSOR
I had the privilege to mediate with Jeremy and the members in a group where i felt secure and safe. Every morning, i tuned into the Zoom class, just having a warmth hello and a smile from Jeremy and the meditators meant the world to me . When I meditated, I knew he meant the best for us, accepting us the way we were. He helped me to develop within calmness, a sense of belonging, the presence of self/others, self-acceptance, emptiness, wanting to be a part of a mindful and supportive community.
I was on the road of remission from cancer, it's long-term impacts on my global health. He helped me to develop, being honest with myself cause I could be vulnerable, feeling safe and serene. What better gift could I ever received.
Thanks for Jeremy and the community for their benevolence and compassionate presences.
