Mindfulness and meditation are powerful tools. They bring calmness and balance to our lives and help us cope with stressful and challenging situations. At Mindful Guatemala, we are passionate about sharing these benefits with people from all backgrounds. We offer both social and private programs for all ages to learn mindfulness skills that help integrate social, emotional and mental well-being. Join us in creating a holistic and sustainable society of peace for all.
Until recently, the practice of mindfulness has been an individual choice; people have sought to gain greater self-understanding, or re-order their hectic minds. However the advent of corporate interest has been spurred by an awareness that happy, balanced people make a stronger workforce.
Unique one-year mindfulness programs serve the at-risk, under-served children and youth in Guatemalan schools and other non-profits organizations, working to train not only the students, but also teachers and staff how to integrate social, emotional and mental well-being strategies through mindfulness in education.
However the awareness that happy, balanced people live healthier lives and make a stronger workforce has spurred both corporate and general public interest. Check out our variety of private programs to learn the valuable skills of mindfulness and stress management.
Our one-year mindfulness programs serve at-risk children and youth in Guatemala as well as non-profit organizations. We train students, teachers and staff how to integrate social and emotional well-being strategies through mindfulness into education. Learn about what we do and how you can support us.
Here's what are amazing clients have to say about our programs.
I recommend Mindful Guatemala's business program to anyone looking to improve teamwork, emotional management, stress reduction and to handle difficult conversations and improve well-being in general! The facilitators are very sure of what they teach and are very professional. They give and stimulate a lot of confidence, are very charismatic and their passion for mindfulness and for sharing it is evident.
My experience with Mindful Guatemala has been through a course my son recently took [Mindful Kids & Teens Program]. I enrolled him because he tends to lose attention and gets angry very easily. And he has loved the course. I also received feedback during the course and afterwards, people would comment on my son being more serene and affectionate. Of course, it is a team effort, but I feel the course was very helpful for us. It motivates me to continue involving him in these types of opportunities. Once again, thank you Mindful Guatemala.
I learned so much in a few weeks [in the 8 Week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program]! Much more than I expected. Today, I am more aware of the small, but big details that surround me. I can appreciate them and be grateful for them. My goal at the beginning was to know myself, and today I can say that I am on that path. I now have the necessary tools to accept myself and be better with myself to give my best.
