In community… healing happens.

"The one who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones."
Mindfulness is the practice of being present; change is possible in the now. It gives us observable space to kindly notice our thoughts, feelings, sensations, urges and judgements. This practice strengthens the mind and flows throughout our Front Porch family and those we serve.
Developed at the Trauma Center in Brookline, MA under neuroscientist Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk and yoga instructor David Emerson, Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) has foundations in trauma theory, attachment theory, and neuroscience as well as Hatha Yoga practice with an emphasis on body-based yoga forms and breathing practices.
“The Front Porch not only offers compassionate, intelligent care for my patients in counseling, but also teaches thriving people to strengthen their minds using Mindfulness. I would highly recommend The Front Porch personally and professionally. This team is leading our community to healing with an intentional positive integrative approach.”
