Developed for graduates of the MindSpace MBSR program, Mindfulness Tools for Valued Living (MTVL) is a six-week workshop is designed to help you cultivate psychological flexibility and move forward with a life that reflects your values.

The workshop material is based on Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT), a scientifically validated psychological model with broad applications in clinical psychology and health psychology.

  • Cultivate mindfulness
  • Gain perspective on painful or ‘sticky’ thoughts
  • Open up to painful emotions with self-compassion
  • Identify your values
  • Take concrete steps toward a life that is consistent with your values

All sessions will take place at the MindSpace Studio at 1310 Greene Avenue (suite 500) in Westmount.
