Mindfulness Matters Maintenance




MBCPM™ Mindfulness Maintenance is called “Mindfulness Matters” and is a “drop-in” class for alumni of the MBCPM™ and MBCSM courses and trainings.

Anyone who has done a mindfulness programme elsewhere may also apply with a physician’s referral.

There are currently two ″Chapters” of “Mindfulness Matters” in Ontario, but as groups at health facilities can no longer congregate, the affected chapters are suspended during COVID-19 restrictions:


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 ET;


Chapter 2 is hosted by NNC, online, via Zoom interface into participant’s homes, following the NNC themes and guidelines, to be explored through formal practice and discussion each week.  Classes run on Mondays from 7:00 to 8:15 pm ET via Zoom with NNC team members Katherine Hall and Debbie Joel. 

First time attending, two classes are free and then $25 to continue the session.  The next session of 9 drop-in classes is $55, or $130 for the year (add HST to all amounts).  There are four “sets” of classes per year.  Where there is financial hardship special arrangements can be made by contacting NNC at team@neuronovacentre.com
