Our vision is world mental health without medication.
The western world needs far less medication and heaps more mentors. (Mentor means a wise and trusted counsellor, teacher or coach.) Medications certainly have their place when peoples lives are out of control. Our vision is aimed more at people as they recover and especially as they present themselves to doctors. Mindfulness is now proven to be an excellent alternative to medication.
Our mission is love, peace and happiness through the practice of mindfulness.
Mindfulness is about paying attention to the present moment with kindness. The practice of mindfulness is noticing that you have been distracted, most likely with thoughts about the past or future, and then bringing your awareness back to the present moment over and over again, until it becomes an embedded way of being. Peace of mind and happiness follow.
Our objective is to lobby for mindfulness in schools.
We need to teach our children how to think, not so much what to think. We need to teach children how to handle difficult thoughts, feelings and emotions as they arise. This would drastically reduce stress, anxiety and depression in later life, especially HSC time. It would also help reduce bullying and anti-social behaviour. At the same time, it would greatly increase creativity, productivity and resilience.
Our focus is prevention of addictive disorders, mental suffering and suicide.
Mindfulness is the best hope for the world to overcome addictive and mental disorders and is part of all therapies used in treating mental ‘illness’ today. Let’s keep our focus on prevention, especially in the early stages of life.
