About

This one-day mindfulness workshop for couples is created with the aim of helping couples bring more connection and presence to their relationship, through mindfulness practices.


Mindfulness meditation is a practice that helps to stay present to life, and away from constant habitual reactivity and distractibility. In its deepest essence, it is also a practice of the heart- a practice of compassion and openness. It is a useful practice for personal growth and lends itself beautifully to being shared with your partner and family.


As psychologists and mindfulness practitioners, we see where mindfulness can play a very important part in our homes, relationships and interactions. Living with stresses of work, city life, and unending social commitments, individuals today find it difficult to truly listen to, understand, forgive, appreciate and cherish their partners. Often little things add up slowly to big fights or an emotional disconnection from each other.


Our workshop is created keeping in mind the needs of relationship in today’s time and providing a few useful mindfulness practices that people can do individually and as a couple.
