Mindfulness Programs Australasia strives to create environments where people learn how to activate their innate capacity to reduce stress in their lives. We support people to live more aligned with their values; to live mindfully.

MPA aims to provide the gold standard in the delivery of mindfulness based programs and educational, clinical and therapeutic services for the wellbeing of our community.

MPA is a partnership between Psychology Matters and Zen Wellbeing Services. These organizations have a long history of providing therapeutic, educational and clinical services in the areas of mental health and wellbeing. Together they form a partnership enabling Mindfulness Based Programs to be delivered in local, rural and remote communities where access to empowering, person centered group programs may not be otherwise widely available.
