“If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Groups (8-weeks)
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a 9-week evidence-based group therapy program (including an orientation session), which has been shown to reduce the impacts associated with depression, anxiety, and stress.
Mindfulness is a non-judgmental way of paying attention to the present moment with compassion. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is designed to bring awareness to the habitual ways of being that can lead to depressive and anxious spirals.
MBCT combines the skills of CBT and mindfulness-based practices, helping participants learn how to respond in more skillful ways to increase well-being and decrease suffering.
