At Mud & Lotus Wellness we believe that fostering our well-being and resilience through Mindfulness and Compassion practices we nourish a positive relationship with ourselves and build stronger and healthier connections with others. Our almost 15 years of experience with the practice has shown us that Mindfulness and Compassion training can help each of us to thrive as individuals and as a collective! These practices invite us to look at how we think, how we act, how we relate, and how we find meaning in both our successes and struggles in a complex and ever changing world.

Whether you are new to the practice or an established practitioner, interested in your own well-being and resilience or an organization interested in promoting the wellness of your employees and or students, we have a program for you! We offer programs which are tailored to the unique needs of our clients including individual counselling and coaching, retreats, introductory workshops, in-depth training including groups, and guest speaking. Our offerings are informed by our wide range of experiences and training in Mindfulness and Compassion practices.

As Social Workers and professional caregivers we have an expertise in supporting the well-being and resilience of those employed in helping and caregiving professions both in the private and public sector.

We believe that the well-being and resilience of professional caregivers are the cornerstones of a healthy helping relationship. As helping professionals we walk into the suffering of others on a daily basis, which can lead to feelings of burnout, stress, and ultimately empathy fatigue. Self-care and resiliency can be an antidote to this, but these are not necessarily innate skills but rather ones that require training. Mindfulness and Compassion based training can guide those in helping professions to focus on their well-being and resilience and ultimately be more compassionate and client-centered.

The ability to engage in skillful self-care is not a given for anyone in a helping profession. It is a skill that needs to be intentionally taught, learned and nurtured. Mindfulness and Compassion training builds these skills. When we invest the time and energy into taking care of ourselves we are actually making the investment in those we care for!

Mindfulness and Compassion training provide us with essential inner resources and relationship centred skills, which cultivate and develop a sense of “presence” or “being with” others in a way that promotes effective collaboration. Many organizations are seeing the benefit of investing in the wellness of their employees through these practices as this translates into  better outcomes for their clients.

By putting Mindfulness and Compassion into action we can learn to build resilience, connection, and compassion within ourselves and our relationships whether they be personal or professional.

Our programs are tailored for anyone with little to lots of experience with Mindfulness and Compassion practices. We work both with individuals and organizations by offering one on one counselling, introductory workshops and retreats, in-depth training including groups, and guest speaking. Our offerings are informed by our wide range of training in Mindfulness and Compassion practices, you can see our About Us page for more details.
