Mindfulness Ottawa is a secular community of like-minded practitioners interested in gathering in fellowship while embodying the principles of mindfulness. Mindfulness Ottawa was officially launched in November 2012. The founding organization of Mindfulness Ottawa is Mindfulness Toronto which started in March, 2009.
In addition, we are organizing a public meditation group at the Royal Spiritual Centre.

We are looking for experienced volunteers to lead these meditations.

Mindfulness Ottawa Network Special Event
Introduction to Brainspotting: "WHERE WE LOOK AFFECTS HOW WE FEEL"
Date: Wednesday April 03, 2019
Location: The Royal Ottawa Hospital, Auditorium
For registration or more information please contact: email@example.com
Join Drs. Jane Evans and Marjorie Robb for an evening in which we introduce the theory and applications of Brainspotting including a demonstration. Brainspotting is used for the treatment of trauma, stress, anxiety, pain, addictions, and performance enhancement.
Brainspotting Therapy™ (BSP) is a neuroscience informed treatment which targets the brain’s natural healing mechanisms, using specific eye positions, somatic awareness, and focused mindfulness. The therapist stays closely attuned to what is going on in the client’s brain, mind and body. The process allows the client’s brain to release the stored traumas which underlie a wide range of emotional and physical problems. It is a brainbody based treatment which integrates well with other types of therapies.
Dr. Marjorie Robb is happy to be one of Canada’s trainers and to be part of the exciting journey many clinicians are making in their discovery of Brainspotting. Marjorie has dived enthusiastically into providing Brainspotting therapy to kids, teens and adults as this technique is powerful, often provides relief quickly, and is versatile to fit with many approaches.
Dr. Jane Evans is an Ottawa based psychiatrist with a specialty in psychotherapy, and over 25 years of experience in her field. Recently, she has found her passion for Brainspotting therapy because of it’s immense healing potential. She has received training from the senior trainer Dr. Pie Frey and the founder Dr. David Grand. Dr. Evans has been at the forefront of bringing this practice to Canada and sharing the modality with colleagues and clients alike
