Essential Change

Courses and Workshops

Transformative Mindfulness 6 week courses continue to be offered at the Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic, typically 2-3 times per year. Please see my home page for when the next course is happening.


Mindfulness, as taught through the 16 Guidelines, goes far beyond breath awareness and works on the levels of right vision and right action that complement right awareness. In secular terms, mindfulness is brought off the cushion and into everyday life through honing intention and practicing values to deep the way we Think, Act, Relate and Find Meaning.

16 Guidelines courses typically happen 2 times in the GTA and once in Ottawa per year. Please check the Centre for Compassion and Wisdom website for 16G courses in the GTA.

Three mindfulness courses are fast approaching!

MIND A5: or Ethics through Mindfulness,  is also being taught through the Applied Mindfulness Meditation Certificate program, please check the website for dates and registration
