About this app

The Centre for Mindfulness Studies is a charitable social enterprise founded in
2011 in downtown Toronto. It is the leading professional development and service
delivery organization for online and in-person mindfulness-based interventions in Canada. We provide Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), and specialized
mindfulness training to the general public, corporate organizations, healthcare
providers, and social service professionals. As a mental health charity, we help those who face economic and social barriers by providing affordable and effective mindfulness-based mental health services through our Community Program. The Centre for Mindfulness Studies is committed to making mindfulness-based mental health services available to everyone.

Mindfulness is awareness cultivated through meditation and other mind-body
practices to regulate and shape our attention and emotions. Mindful awareness
disrupts automatic tendencies to create space to choose a different response. The
evidence base for the efficacy of mindfulness-based therapy for the treatment of
depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders has been established through
hundreds of published research papers, many randomized control trials, and
several recent meta-analyses. Mindfulness-based therapies have also shown to be
effective in addressing the factors that lead to social isolation.

This app was developed specifically for the purpose of supporting a participant’s mindfulness-based practice. The app provides all of the meditations that are used in our 8-week MBCT, MBSR, and MSC programs. Other meditations by our expert faculty can also be accessed through the app. The unique approach the Centre takes on mindfulness meditation is evidence-based, highly-researched, and clinically proven. It is focused on mindfulness for mental health and the approach is embedded in healthcare.

Other features include:

- Ability to filter meditations by program and duration
- Save (or “favourite”) meditations for quick access
- Download meditations so that they can be used offline
- Schedule meditations for yourself and receive a notification when it’s time to meditate. This can be done daily, weekly, monthly or one time
- Scroll through our MindFeed notification board which will give you all the latest news in mindfulness, including upcoming programs at the Centre and blog posts
