Welcome to Mindful Nation Canada

MindfulNation.ca has been established to bring about change in Canada by promoting mindful initiatives across our mighty nation. It’s a movement.

We want Canada to unplug, slow down, pay attention and learn to be present. By being present we become more self-aware. Self-awareness cultivates compassion for your self and fosters a society of kindness, respect and interconnectedness as a nation.

Where we get our inspiration from:

“Mindfulness can literally change our brains, improve our capacity for perspective taking and decision-making and enhance our emotional intelligence and our ability to act with clarity and wisdom alone and in concert with others.”
~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

“Happiness is found by deeply experiencing the exact moment we are in. We need new approaches that can draw out our deep inner resources. Once we learn to tap into these resources, we will find the strength to replenish, reform and renew our country.”
~ US Congressman Tim Ryan, author A Mindful Nation

“The Mindful Nation UK Report by the Mindfulness All-Party Parliamentary Group, the first policy document of its kind, was published in October 2015. The report seeks to address mental health concerns in the areas of education, health, the workplace and the criminal justice system through the application of mindfulness interventions.”

~ Mindful Nation UK

The latest initiative of Mindful Nation Canada is entering a team in “Mindfulness Challenge 2017”. MacLachlan College is the Oakville, ON host for this initiative. Challenge yourself to be mindful and help raise funds for the disadvantaged suffering from mental illness.
