Listen to a meditation from Patrick: 


  • Mindful Leader

    “I highly recommend MSBR for anyone who is dealing with a lot of stress. The mindfulness techniques that I learned have improved my health and changed my life.”

    Founder & President Synergistic Healing Center of Atlanta

  • Mindful Leader

    “The MBSR course was great! The online format was a nice option that allowed me to take the course when I might otherwise not have been able to. Despite not being able to be together in person, the teacher was able to make the environment inviting and the group was able to be in a safe and open place.”

  • Mindful Leader

    “The 8-week course gave me the practice I need to become a more effective communicator. It helped me slow down and remain in the present moment during conversations; listening, understanding and remaining calm even in challenging situations.”

    Ph.D. President & CEO Brockport Research Institute
