We, at Mindfulness Association Polska, believe that mindfulness is a way of life and not just a short intervention alleviating the symptoms of a lack of emotional balance. That is why we provide long-term, systematic training in mindful living. We practice mindful presence responding with compassion to difficulties and notice in ourselves the deeply-seated habitual thought, feeling and behaviour patterns. This frees us from the conditionings that rule us and limit our life. In effect this contributes to developing our human potential by making choices in how we relate to ourselves and the world.
Mindfulness Association Polska organises 8-week courses and professional development trainings in the domain of mindfulness and compassion, retreats for practitioners of mindfulness and methods of body work i. e. for all who wish to deepen their skills. In Poland we have organisations conducting courses for mindfulness instructors in the following methods: MBSR, MBCT, MBLC and Breathworks but Mindfulness Association Polska is the only organisation training teachers of MBLC (Mindfulness Based Teachers Course) and CBLC (Compassion Based Living Course) in the country.
Mindfulness Association Polska has been active in Poland since 2014 and its Marketing Authorisation Holder is the Voices Foundation founded by Anna Zubrzycki.
Mindfulness Association Polska was licenced by Mindfulness Association UK –a non-profit organisation founded by Rob Nairn, who is responsible for creating the program of the MBCL and CBLC courses, as well as MA course programs in mindfulness at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. Mindfulness Association Polska came into being to provide high quality of education in the domains of Mindfulness, Compassion and Insight.
