Mindfulness helps to decrease stress, increase resilience, improve personal productivity, develop connections with others, and augment the ability to experience more joy and peace.
Mindfulness is all about encouraging awareness of oneself in the present moment, and without judgment.

We would like to thank and acknowledge Harlan Pruden for sharing The Dictionary of Chinook Jargon compiled by Frederic J. Long
for naming this project. Harlan is Knowledge Translation Lead, Chee Mamuk, BCCDC and member of the Psychological Health and Safety Community of Practice. Chinook Jargon was a simplified language based on Chinook, French, English and other Indigenous languages and used in BC in the 1800s and early 1900s. It enabled people from widely diverse cultures and completely different languages to communicate and trade with other. We would also like to thank our colleagues across PHSA and the BC Children's Hospital Centre for Mindfulness
for their collaboration and generosity. We welcome additional contributions to this mindfulness library by connecting with us at email@example.com
