Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., from U. of Mass. Medical Center, describes mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.” We have learned in the past 20 years that mindfulness can be broadly applied and practiced, especially with those individuals suffering from multiple life situations, most of all addictions!
At Providence Treatment we place a high priority on the training and the practice of mindfulness meditation. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, overly active mind, or just generally discontented – mindfulness has been a proven strategy to reduce these dis-eases in our lives.
Dr. William Heran, the co-founder of Providence Treatment, is a former Jesuit and has been practicing mindfulness type techniques for over 30 years. He leads the mindfulness training and Silent Retreats for Providence Treatment.
