Mindful + Pratique’s mission is to support the development of resilience and joy in and among individuals of all identities.
At our core, M+P is a transdisciplinary model of well-being that integrates mindfulness, positive psychology, and expressive arts practices.
We deliver transformational and creative experiences to our audience through a series of educational resources and workshops.
An experiential, dynamic, non-linear exploration of the self in context provides opportunities for positive change on an individual and collective level.
WHAT IS MINDFUL + PRATIQUE?
M+P creates opportunities for individuals to explore the inter-relationship, cross-application, and hybridization of transformation and modes of awareness. Each individual interprets the practice through a unique lens shaped by their personal history and interests.
Philosophical and psychological notions of what constitutes the “self” have been discussed for millennia. Mindful+Pratique considers and engages the Self on a variety of levels. It considers how identity is a construct shaped by individuals’ perceptions of lived experiences. It presents a transdisciplinary approach to well-being by drawing from principles and practices associated with mindfulness, expressive arts, and positive psychology.
Symbolic Transformation is Mindful + Pratique’s name for the pathway of unifying and balancing the Self. It refers to the process of examining what constitutes the Self through a sequence of actions that activate different modes of exploration.
Deep change and reflection is allowed by the construction of consequential progressions that suggest linkages between activities and meaning made within and across, past, current and implicated future events.
The sequence of activities is intended to create opportunities to engage the individual in developing synergies within the Self as the individual progresses through each stage.
