We work across sectors and disciplines, promoting contemplative pedagogies, mindful leadership, compassionate care, and ethical practices impacting community wellness and positive mental health. Based on the premise that education drives social change, we are committed to advancing collective wellness through the teaching and practice of "compassionate cooperation," a specific application of mindfulness that invites and supports connection between self and others (D'Amico, 2014).
Connection is the basis for human flourishing, and instrumental to feeling satisfied and happy with people and situations in family life, the workplace, and larger communities. It is the basis for healthy systems because it affects the quality and authenticity of human relationships, impacting motivation, productivity, effectiveness, collaboration, and morale.
