Join us for a live online info session about our Mindfulness Course and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program with instructor Külli Yee. Ashton College staff will also be available to advise and answer your questions about admissions and other general questions about the course.

The Mindfulness course provides a broad overview of the fundamental concepts, principles and practices of mindfulness. Course participants will not only be introduced to the concept of Mindfulness but will also have the opportunity of learning to apply the practices to their daily lives.
