Welcome to Awakening Resources Center 

ARC offers non-denominational talks, programs, and consultation in mindfulness, stress reduction,  self-inquiry, and guided relaxation for groups, professionals, executives and staffs of all sizes.  ARC utilizes instructional discourse, written/physical/verbal exercises, meditation/relaxation exercises, breathing exercises, and group  interaction.  We explore the integration of mindfulness/nonjudgemental awareness with thought, emotion and body.

The Mindful Program (and all that ARC teaches) is non-denominational, non-religious and approachable in a broad sense.  You will be welcomed, included,  inspired and empowered in the course. Once  experienced and learned mindfulness  easily becomes self sustaining and regenerating- allowing for numerous and profound personal and professional benefits to unfold.

An Invitation:

I’ve been involved with mindfulness for close to twenty-five years now. My story might be similar to yours: I was stressed and unfulfilled (sick I tell people). When I discovered mindfulness I knew that it was the medicine for me. I took the medicine and it worked.  I guarantee  The Mindful Program will be one of the most valuable learning experiences you’ve ever had. The short eight weeks we gather will have a tremendous impact on you for the rest of your life.

 Wishing you Peace and Prosperity,

Jeff Stewart Dixon / Founder, Author, Teacher
