MBCPM™ Mindfulness Maintenance is called “Mindfulness Matters” and is a drop in class.
There are currently 3″Chapters” of “Mindfulness Matters” in Ontario.
Chapter 1 is hosted by facilitators Annie Hebert RN and Barb Fraser MSW from Noelville and Haliburton respectively, and links with a number of sites via telemedicine including Aurora, Blind River, Bracebridge, Elliot Lake and Newmarket, but please check our table periodically for site updates. Scripts of themes and guidelines are provided by NNC, to explore through formal practice and discussion. Classes run on Thursdays from 3.30 to 4.30 pm.
Chapter 2 is hosted from Orillia and connects with, Brampton, Orangeville, Scarborough and Toronto West via telemedicine. This class has been volunteer/ participant-run with the guidance of capable MBCPM™ alumni volunteer Sheri-Leigh Liddard, following NNC themes and guidelines, to be explored through formal practice and discussion each week. Classes run on Thursdays from 1.30 to 2.45 pm.
A Zoom-mediated version is also run by Sheri-Leigh on Wednesdays, with a cost associated.
Chapter 3 is an onsite Self-Management group in Kingston, volunteer-coordinated, hosted by another capable MBCPM™ alumni volunteer: Christine Sugrue, again with clear guidelines and theme scripts.
Who Can Attend
The class is open to alumni of MBCPM™ programmes. Anyone who has done a mindfulness programme elsewhere may also apply with a physician’s referral.
