About mindfulness method

The mindfulness practice is a scientifically based method of training attentiveness and awareness. It aims to develop attention management skills, as well as other qualities based on the experience of attentiveness: emotional self-regulation, stress resistance, productivity, kindness, clarity in communication with oneself and others, etc.


The mindfulness method is based on the synthesis of contemplative practices and a scientific evidence-based approach. It does not contain religious or esoteric components. It was created by neuroscientist, professor of medicine John Kabat-Zinn in 1979. The method exists both: as an independent practice and as a part of psychotherapeutic and medical approaches to improve human well-being.

About us

We are a community of people who care about the development of maturity and mindfulness not only at the level of an individual but also at the level of the community, business, and state. Our goals are the support and development of the community of mindfulness teachers in Ukraine, as well as the formation of a culture of mindfulness and the popularization of mindfulness practices in various spheres of life.


In our work, we are based exclusively on modern scientific facts, we actively use meta-researches in neurophysiology and data from related scientific disciplines. We are open to cooperation with all institutions that are aware of the significant role of a person’s development in the development of society as a whole.
