Center for Mindful Living















Char Wilkins is a mindfulness-based psychotherapist who works with individuals, couples and groups incorporating the intention and skills of mindfulness as a foundation from which to explore one’s life. Her focus is the dynamic connection of mind, body and spirit, and in assisting people to mindfully create emotional, physical, and spiritual health in their lives. She specializes in working with stress-related physical and emotional issues, with women who have experienced childhood abuse and trauma, and those who suffer with depression, anxiety and disordered eating.

Char has been awarded teacher certification in MBSR by the Center for Mindfulness, UMass Medical School, Worcester, MA. She teaches MBSR, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and mindfulness-based eating awareness programs for the general public. These programs help people who suffer from anxiety, panic and depression, disordered eating, migraines, cancer, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, IBS, heart disease and high blood pressure, diabetes and sleep disturbance. Since 2001 she has offered these research-supported programs that are based in mindfulness practices.

Char also trains professionals in the application of mindfulness in psychotherapy, advanced MBCT skills, mindfulness eating trainings, and integrative mindfulness weekend programs. She has taught at Omega Institute, Kripalu, Joshua Tree Retreat Center, Barre Center for Buddhist Studies and for the University of California San Diego and NASW/CT conferences. She provides consultation in the use of mindfulness in professional settings.

She has had a personal meditation practice since 1995, is currently studying Qigong and Taijiquan, serves on the Board of Directors for The Center for Mindful Eating and is the owner/director of the Center for Mindful Living, LLC and A Mindful Path, LLC.

A Mindful Path, LLC was created to provide programs that allow people the opportunity to explore ways to live more mindfully. Mindfulness is learning to pay attention in a non-judgmental way, in the present moment to our thoughts, emotions and physical sensations, which in turn allows us the possibility of choosing how to respond rather than react to people and events in our lives. Being mindful is a way to connect your mind and body so that you can fully engage in life, enjoy each day, and take care of yourself.

Many of the programs that are offered are designed for the general public and others address specific needs such as disordered eating, anxiety and depression. At the heart of all of these programs are researched-based exercises and mindfulness that you can use the rest of your life.
