Why this course?
This program is for you if you would like to restore your sense of mental health and well-being, increase your self-awareness of your triggers, understand your stressors and coping mechanisms, and re-program negative patterns and behaviours.
Using tools for emotional regulation, well-being and somatic awareness, this program equips you with a self-sustaining mental health & well-being plan and a plan of action for moments of crisis.
Successful mental well-being is not about never having negative emotions or thoughts, it’s about pro-actively applying the skills you’ll learn on this course when they arise and being able to process them. When we are able to do this skillfully, we can operate in a world from response rather than reaction.

My first meditation experience was with Davina, and I was generally a skeptic to meditation at that point. I was curious to try it because Davina spoke passionately about how it helped her and the different approach she has towards one's meditation practice. Davina focuses a lot of both the art and science of meditation, and infuses movement into her practice. I took her 8-week Guide to Meditation course and it was enriched with evidence-based research and multi-disciplinary concepts. Each lesson starts with understanding the 'why' and 'how', and it ends with actual practice. I find this structure very conducive to learn. The practice itself was very effective for raising my self-awareness, and self-inquiry into my deeper thoughts and feelings. This led to me being able to quit smoking after 15 years, because I could drill down to the root cause of my habit and use meditation to develop new healthier habits. The practice is very accessible, and self-compassionate. It also improved my sleep over time. I highly recommend Davina's courses.
