Our mission

We aim to promote the understanding of mindfulness and to encourage evidence based mindfulness and meditation practices to help people to become more resilient, aware, positive and happier.

Our values

|

Going beyond relaxation, we value the benefits that evidence based and practical mindfulness can bring to all people:

Our history

|

Dr. Chris Walsh (MBBS, DPM, FAChAM) developed mindfulness.org.au in 2004, during a time when very little was known about mindfulness in Australia. The site began with a definition of mindfulness, introductory articles and some international references. 

 

Over the next a few years, Dr. Walsh has tirelessly built on the site with frequent Resource updates, which included articles, publications and multimedia resources on mindfulness and its various practical techniques. Dr. Walsh continues to update and produce new resources today with enthusiastic dedication to our mission.​

Even prior to the establishment of the website, Dr. Walsh had been providing mindfulness training to many of his hospital inpatients over many years. After seeing material benefits experienced by patients who were suffering from anxiety, depression, addiction and many other conditions, he was encouraged by his patients and colleagues to provide a direct-to-public mindfulness training in 2016 (Mindfulness with Dr. Walsh).

All this came very timely, during a period of a "mindfulness boom". While this helpfully brought mindfulness to the attention of many, it also spawned many "half baked" training by practitioners who didn’t really understand mindfulness at all. These commercialised, feel good mindfulness classes are unhelpful and have been christened "McMindfulness"

 

In contrast, we aim to remain as a source of evidence based resilience building mindfulness for all.
