Welcome to 

The China-Canada Mindfulness Association

China-Canada Mindfulness Association (CCMA) is a non-profit organization registered in Canada that was established in 2020. Our association aims to integrate high-quality mindfulness-related courses and trainers in North America.

 It intends to help Mandarin speakers worldwide by using mindfulness to reduce anxiety and stress.

CCMA signs cooperative agreement with Centre for Mindfulness Studies (CMS) to deliver an intensive certificate training program for facilitating MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy), an 8-week clinical program for the prevention and treatment of mood disorders. 

The training initiative consists of a 2-part train-the-trainer program. The first part of the training program is aimed at developing  experienced MBCT facilitators. The training will cover facilitation of four CMS workshops that are core to CMS’ MBCT Facilitation Certificate Program.

The second part of the training will be delivered by CCMA  starting in spring 2022, and is aimed at training Chinese  professionals to facilitate MBCT programs.
