What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a skill that opens our potential for growth by enhancing:

SELF-AWARENESS. Learn to focus your attention inward. Directing attention to your thoughts, emotions, and body sensations can help develop a deeper understanding and a renewed way to relate to yourself. Also gain a renewed appreciation of the world around you through openness, curiosity, and kindness. With enhanced self-awareness, you can be open to your potential for growth and know how to respond to the experiences you face better.

STRESS MANAGEMENT through SELF-MANAGEMENT. As you become more self-aware, learn how to manage your thoughts and emotions so you can be better equipped to handle and respond to stress and difficulties with more calmness and confidence.


What makes Ateneo Bulatao Mindfulness programs different from other mindfulness programs?

We offer evidence-based, effective, and integrative mind-body based training that teaches another way to approach one’s experiences with calm, curiosity, and openness, especially in stressful and challenging times.

The Ateneo Bulatao Center is the first center in the country certified to implement mindfulness-based cognitive interventions by the Centre for Mindfulness Studies, based in Toronto, Canada.


What can I learn from this 4-week program?

Finding Calm in Chaos is composed of experience-based learning activities and theory-based discussion and inquiry. Understanding the uniqueness of your mindfulness journey, this 4-week program encourages you to incorporate your personal experiences because these will help enrich your understanding of mindfulness methods, ideas, theories, and practices in class. Doing so can help you develop and retain relevant mindful habits into your life.


This 4-week program can help you learn how to:

  • Focus and direct attention to what is happening inside of you (unconscious thoughts, emotions, and body sensations)
  • Catch and notice your unique and unconscious mental habits and discover alternative ways of thinking and doing
  • Be empowered through learning to stay focused and grounded, maintaining calm even during stress and difficulties
  • Learn to skillfully reduce the intensity of stressful and challenging thoughts and emotions
  • Recognize early warning signs of stress and creatively plan healthy responses
  • Be kinder and gentler with yourself


Be part of a growing community that fosters an open, accepting, and supportive learning environment! This is an invitation for you to be engaged fully and to reflect on your own experiences as you learn and discover about mindfulness in a nurturing and safe environment.
