Welcome to Perfectly Here!

Are you struggling with stress, anxiety or physical pain? Looking for an answer that doesn’t involve drugs or other addictive substances?

Give Mindfulness a try. Celebrities like Oprah, Anderson Cooper and Kobe Bryant, as well as many others, are practitioners and advocates for Mindfulness. Furthermore, there is over 30 years of development and scientific research by universities such as MIT, UCLA, and USC showing how and why it works.

For new students we recommend taking 101: MAPs I For Daily Life so you can learn the basics of Mindfulness.  If you have any questions please call us at (818) 453-0640. We look forward to meeting you.

 

Mindfulness for First Responders

Our First Responders not only face life threatening situations, but see some pretty horrendous things as well.  Due to this, many of them are left with sleepless nights and PTSD.  This then leads to divorce, suicide, and many other painful outcomes. So what can we do to help those who have helped us?

Studies have shown Mindfulness to be the answer. This fundraising campaign’s goal is to raise enough money to give prepaid classes to police, firefighters and EMTs. Join us in making a difference to these brave men and women today.

“Learning about the obstacles to being happy and being able to identify them when I am experiencing them has helped me feel more calm and peaceful. As a result, I am better able to identify when I am making a story out of my struggles (obstacles) and can release myself from being fixated (stuck) on their repetitive story. As a result, I am able to be present in the here and now rather than get carried away in the story or obstacle.”

“Somehow through the teachings and reinforcing the wisdom given in class I have been able to let go of the idea that I must suffer. I can see my reality in the moment and the ability to choose to not suffer which sometimes comes as a result of not wanting to see my reality and in my suffering my imaginings of the negative grow.
