Our Programs

Welcome to Mindful Connections!

Mindful Connections™ is Awaken Pittsburgh’s evidence-based series of mindfulness training programs designed with those who teach, help, and care for others in mind. Equally, we serve all who actively seek to reduce their stress or increase their mental health and well-being. 

We have designed personalized programs for educators, classrooms, early childhood centers, public safety and helping professionals, workplace wellness, and anyone who experiences stress or burnout.

Led by experts in their fields and grounded in the latest findings in neuroscience and dialectical behavioral therapy, Mindful Connections™ programs are a proven path to powerful and lasting transformation. 

Program Basics

Duration and Format

Each Mindful Connections™ introductory program is a 17.5-hour course. We offer this in two formats:

  • Nine (9) 1.5-hour class sessions + one half-day of practice, OR 
  • Four (4) monthly 3-hour sessions + one half-day of practice.

Skill Levels

Our introductory series is geared towards beginners, but introduces a spectrum of practices that can benefit all levels. In addition, we offer programs specific to intermediate and advanced practitioners.


We strive to make mindfulness education accessible and affordable for all. If programming cost is a concern or a barrier to training, reach out to our program manager, dawn@awakenpittsburgh.org
