Why Awaken Is Right For You

Our Approach

Our Mindful Connections™ curricula, and all programs we deliver, are grounded in the latest scientific studies on the efficacy of mindfulness and meditation training. As we continually measure the effectiveness of our programming, our aim is to use this growing evidence base to design practical, supportive programs that can benefit individuals and, consequently, the entire community.

We Are Experts in Mindfulness Science That Provides the Benefits You're Looking For

At Awaken Pittsburgh, our proprietary approach is firmly rooted in current research and scientific literature. We find that the impact of mindfulness practice reported by our participants and unearthed through our own studies consistently aligns with the findings of institutions we follow and trust.

A few of the primary benefits include:

Reduced Stress

In studies, participants in a mindfulness training group reported significantly decreased perceived stress and increased positive states of mind.

Decreased Emotional Reactivity 

Mindfulness meditation has been shown to decrease the interfering effects of unpleasant or emotional stimuli on people completing simple tasks.

Less Burnout & Compassion Fatigue  

Educators who practiced mindfulness found it effective in combating emotional exhaustion, among other widely-studied components of burnout.

While personal experience is key to discovering the value of mindfulness for you, we encourage those interested to explore the documented effects practice has on the well-being of individuals and communities. 

Research-Based Programs

Inspired by mounting neuroscientific research that mindfulness training can reduce stress and increase well-being, we customize Mindful Connections™ programming for a range of audiences. 

We work with educators, social workers, therapists, helping professionals and others in high-stress positions, with an emphasis on those under-represented in mindfulness circles. Awaken Pittsburgh’s curriculum reflects current protocols and methodologies. We also contribute to the growing body of mindfulness through comprehensive program research, evaluation, and reporting.
