Welcome to Perfectly Here!

If you are thinking about committing yourself to the cultivation of Mindfulness and the Art of Living Wiseley you can now enroll in Perfectly Here’s Mindful Traveler Certificate PRogram. To be a Mindful Traveler means everyone advances this gradual path at their own unique and desired way. We are all travelers of our own lives, destiny and in our day to day affairs. The only person who can do anything about and is truly responsible for our happiness is ourselves. With that realization in mind, you may start with a one-year Mindful Traveler Program and advance from there if you chose to. For beginners, we recommend starting with UCLA MAPs (Mindful Awareness Practices) I: For Daily Living.

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.

Veterans and First Responders Stress Release Initiative

Kuroosh Compassionate Recovery Program

Compassion is hard to hold on to while experiencing fear, worry, and chaos within the family system of addiction. Your support can help develop the heart of compassion and compassionate boundaries, which create the space for loving relationships.

Practicing loving/kindness, compassion and non-judgmental attitude helped change Kuroosh’s heart and direction. He became kinder, more generous, less selfish and isolated, more aware of others and how he could regulate his emotions and anxieties. He took opportunities to serve and motivate others. Through compassion practices, his demeanor and attitude towards others blossomed into gratitude, appreciation, and kindness.

You and your loved one can experience this as well. A respectful relationship. A compassionate and heartful interaction while drawing and holding firm boundaries to protect yourself.

“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.
