Our Goal: Perfectly Here’s goal is to support and nurture students in a loving and safe environment to experience an evolving transformation. Our founders are experts in Mindfulness, highly educated, and experienced practitioners. Likewise, we seek to attract and add higher caliber teachers and trainers.

Tools & Techniques:  Perfectly Here implements its mission by offering programs that incorporate scientifically proven Mindfulness practices and techniques. We draw from psychology and wisdom teachings to help participants understand and modify their own minds, emotions, and behaviors.

Outcome: Brain science has discovered that practicing Mindfulness, Compassion, Gratitude, and Loving Kindness can change neuropathways. With continued practice, various brain regions integrate and increase practitioners’ capacity to shift their attention, regulate their emotions, make better decisions, and live happier and healthier lives.

Students of Perfectly Here consistently report a positive change in ways of thinking and actions. We have heard results, such as reducing blood pressure, depression, road rage, and increased calmness, happiness, and better relationships.

Measuring Effects: The positive ripple effects of this increased capacity for compassion and attentiveness cannot be measured as it goes far beyond touching all others in a web of interdependence.
