SkillfulMeans Mission Statement:
At SkillfulMeans we believe well-being is a human right and there are as many paths towards well-being as there are people. Our mission is to apply mindfulness to our personal and professional relationships for real-world behavior change to enhance well-being at home and in the workplace.
What is Mindfulness?
We see mindfulness as a curiosity and purposeful experiencing of thoughts, feelings, sensations and relationships in the present moment. A moment of mindfulness is when we are able to see ourselves through a wider lens that includes more self-compassion and self-acceptance.
It is that moment when you realize you were caught up in a thought, feeling, perception or habit. In that moment, you have agency to choose how you respond to your feelings, thoughts and ultimately who you want to be and align you behavior with your values.
Mindfulness with SkillfulMeans
When we think of mindfulness practice, we often image as sitting on a cushion with our eyes closed and focusing on the breath.
Mindfulness practice on the cushion helps us get clearer on the behaviors that increases our well-being and the wellbeing of our community.
At SkillfulMeans, we believe an equally important aspect of cultivating mindfulness is tending to what is happening off a cushion: in a conversation with a friend or child, when dealing with a conflict at work, or while enjoying a meal.
In order to move in the direction of our own well-being, we must be mindful with your eyes wide open fully engaging in our lives.
This is why we have created an online community with intensive trainings focused on those aspects of our lives most important to us. Our SkillfulMeans trainings and community is for parents, professionals, teachers, coaches, students, and anyone interested in embodying mindful communication skills and living their most authentic lives at home and at work.
