See life behind the scenes at The Mindfulness Clinic (video 2 minutes)
Hello, I’m Sarah from the Mindfulness Clinic. This is a brief video that will give you a glimpse of life behind the scenes at the Mindfulness Clinic. We’re located just beside Sick Kids’ Hospital in downtown Toronto, and we’re a group of psychotherapists, psychologists, and yoga instructors who are all trained in psychology as well as in mindfulness.
And one of the things we do as a team is we have meetings once a week where we discuss cases and also plan for the development of the clinic. We also meet every day for one hour between two and three o’clock. Anyone who’s available on staff is invited to meditate for that period of time.
And on Thursdays we host something called “Meet, Eat and Sit”, and that’s for health professionals or people who are studying in health-related professions. This is an opportunity for us to do a meditation together as a group and also chat and eat our lunch together. It happens on Thursdays at lunchtime.
And then once a month, on the third Thursday of the month, we gather again, a similar group, healthcare workers, healthcare professionals, as well as students, and our staff here, and it’s a full day retreat. So it’s between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
We also have a yoga studio as part of the clinic where we do yoga therapy classes as well as private yoga sessions. You’ll see on the screen now, yoga instructor, Larissa Dill, who’s working with another staff member, Mary Ellen, on a lesson plan.
The Mindfulness Clinic is affiliated with another psychology practice called Clear Path Solutions, which is at 700 Bay Street as well, run also by Dr. Paul Kelly, as well as Dr. Doug Saunders. Once a week, on Mondays, between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., we bring both of our teams together and we do continuing education rounds.
So if you’re interested in learning more about the Mindfulness Clinic, there is more information on our website or you could call us, and you’re welcome to pop by. We would love to meet you. Thank you.
