A MINDFULNESS JOURNEY

My mindfulness journey began at Duke Integrative Medicine in 2013. I was extremely stressed and sad after our family moved from India to North Carolina, USA. Fortunately, I found a mindfulness drop-in class in Durham, and ever since that very first class, I have never stopped practicing mindfulness. The mindfulness classes were profoundly healing, inspiring me to create a similar space for others.

After just one year in the USA, we moved to Kuwait, where we lived for six happy years. During our time in Kuwait, I began teaching MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction). I was humbled by the warm welcome and love I received from both expatriates and Kuwaitis. I taught over twenty 8-week classes in Kuwait, delivering mindfulness instruction in private companies, Al Shaheed Park, schools, and hospitals.

In 2020, we moved back to Denmark. I am currently teaching online with plans to offer in-person classes in Denmark soon. I look forward to meet you and practice togeher. 

With love, Mai

“Thank you for inviting strangers into your home so that they could find their home within themselves"

Eman, Kuwait

"I used to be tense, impatient, and often rushing myself without giving myself any time to linger. After joining MBSR, I am more calm, take time to respond, and meditation is my best daily recharge".

Tammy, USA and Kuwait

Mai takes care of each student as a seedling, tending to us individually, wanting us to learn all we can and grow from the experience. She genuinely wants us to find what we need to learn from the course and our practice, become our own teachers, and take the experience forward for ourselves and others. I see her as a gardener cultivating the culture of mindfulness in Kuwait as a whole".
