Origins of CALM Presence

Youth Mindfulness and CALM Training have long held shared values and aspirations. After several years of discussion, it became apparent that a valuable collaboration could take place. CALM Presence is the fruit of those shared aspirations.

Why a 2-day CALM Presence Course?

In working with people who experience distress, feelings of fatigue, burnout and stress can seem unavoidable for caring professionals. However, if we can find ways to nourish our own wellbeing – cultivating our innate capacities for mindfulness and compassion – we discover that not only are we better able to cope, we can also realise a sensitive, wiser and more responsive approach to the people we work with. CALM Presence is an experiential 2-day course in the why, what and how of relating to ourselves and others with mindfulness and compassion.
