A realistic and practical approach to parenting, drawing from science and wisdom traditions to guide us towards happier, healthier families.

Buzz words such as ‘thriving’, resilience’, and ‘mindful’ fill headlines and sell books, but what do they really mean, and how do we cultivate these traits in our families? What does modern science say about mindfulness and child development, and how can we use this information to make our families feel less stressed, not more? This 10-day course will emphasize a realistic and practical approach to parenting, drawing from science and traditions of wisdom to guide us towards happier, healthier families. Let us truly let go of the extra and focus on what matters most.

Do Your Habits Help You to Be Happy? Our habits support our health. Still, we get caught in negative patterns around how we live, how we eat, how we sleep, and more. Mindfulness practice can change our relationship to habits in every aspect of life that have a big impact on our health and well-being. Habits can seem impossible to shift, but with increased awareness, clarity and intention, we can change them.

Healthy Mind, Healthy Life is a six-lesson course with teachings and practices to help you make positive changes in your everyday health and relationships. Led by physician and mindfulness teacher Dr. Mark Bertin, this course provides you with knowledge and tools to make long-lasting shifts towards better health and well-being.
