We have just completed a wonderful year-long project, funded by the Zanvyl and Isabelle Krieger Fund. This project, called the Mindful Awareness Mentoring Initiative (MAMI), mentored professionals who work in infant, child and maternal mental health programs. Our focus was to teach a select group of mentees mindful awareness and self-compassion skills, first for their own practice, and then to share with their colleagues and directly with the young families they serve. The focus on mentoring proved to be productive and empowering.

Every day, we meet people we don’t know. Embedded in those chance encounters are opportunities to connect and share meaningful present moment experiences. When we do so, our world expands, and our hearts are touched.
