Mindful Junkie Outreach
~ Serving those who serve our communities ~
Mission: Create accessible mindfulness & mindfulness trainings for first responders.
Mindful Junkie Outreach is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. MJO teaches First Responder Mindfulness Training on-site through workshops, as well as Mindfulness Training 2 Day Intensives. First responders encounter a tremendous amount of daily aggravators and trauma, with minimal resources provided to help resolve the unwanted and unintentional outcomes of chronic stress. Teaching first responders how to respond, rather than react, creates a resiliency that is required not only on the job, but also at home. Teaching the skills of "present awareness" through meditation and movement provides tools to use in toxic situations. The skills acquired during training help to decrease stress, decrease anxiety, increase sleep, and create an overall healthy mind and body connection. The goal of MJO is to empower first responders with mindfulness strategies to be healthier, safer, and emotionally regulated - both on the job, and at home.
