Mindfulness education in Canada

Buddhism in Canada Buddhist Psychology MBSR Meditation Mindfulness

With the recent launch of Mindful magazine as part of the Shambhala stable of publications, I’ve been pondering what is going on in the field of mindfulness-based therapies and mindfulness education in Canada. I’m puzzled at the explosion in the use of the term, often defined in an overly tautological fashion.

So, a quick Google search reveals:

http://www.mindfulnessinstitute.ca – Dr. Phillips in Edmonton, AB

http://www.mindfulnessstudies.com – a large institution in Toronto, ON

http://www.ottawamindfulnessclinic.com – Lynette Monteiro and Frank Musten in Ottawa, ON. Lynette also publishes the 108zenbooks blog.

http://www.mindful.ca – Dr. Stéphane Treyvaud in Oakville, ON

http://mindfulnesseveryday.com – Heidi Borenstein in Toronto, ON

Readers also directed me to:

http://www.themindfulnessclinic.ca – Dr. Paul Kelly in Toronto, ON

http://www.mindfulnessmeditationcentre.org – Joseph Emet in Montréal, QC
