Mindfulness Workshops & Dr. Maura Kenny’s Mindful Self Care Program
Soul Strong Society provides a range of mindfulness presentations to suit the needs of organisations and communities.
We also facilitate the Mindful Self Care (MSC) program designed by Dr. Maura Kenny, the founder of the Mindfulness Training Institute of Australia. The MSC course is based on the Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (Segal, Williams and Teasdale) framework. The course schedule includes 6 weekly x 1 ¼ hour classes so that organisations and communities can fit the program flexibly into an average working day.
The structure of the course, the support of a teacher, and the fellowship of other participants are all invaluable in establishing and maintaining a compassionate and mindful approach to life and living. Learn more…

About Mindfulness & Wellbeing
“Mindfulness is non judgmentally, paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment.” John Kabat Zinn
Mindfulness is a practice which has been explored by the world’s meditative and wisdom traditions as well as various western sciences, including medicine, and psychology. It is a universal tool for cultivating self-understanding and healing and is not dependent on any particular belief system or ideology. The Chinese character for mindfulness gives us a clue to the scope of the practice: ‘heart presence’.
“Knowledge does not mean mastering a great quantity of different information, but understanding the nature of mind. This knowledge can penetrate each one of our thoughts and illuminate each one of our perceptions.” ~Matthieu Ricard
Mindfulness Teacher’s Network of South Australia
Mindful Self Care facilitators are members of the Mindfulness Teacher’s Network of South Australia (MTNSA). The MTNSA was developed to bring clarity for the general public and those interested in mindfulness-based programs in SA. At this time of increasing interest in mindfulness, it is important to have confidence in the integrity and training of those providing programs.
