MMFT® Online


Perhaps you’ve just read Widen the Window, or you’ve heard about the rigorous scientific research showing MMFT’s benefits in high-stress environments. Now, you’re wondering how you can take the entire MMFT course. These tried-and-tested methods for widening the window have helped thousands of people who work in high-stress environments—and now they can help you, too.

I am excited to partner with Sounds True to offer an online version of Mindfulness-based Mind Fitness Training (MMFT)®. Since launching in November 2020, it’s available on-demand.

When I first started collaborating with Sounds True, I had no idea that a global pandemic would be on the horizon. Who knew that an online resilience training program could be so timely?

The Online MMFT Course

The 8-week MMFT online course includes all essential elements of the live MMFT course—updated with the most recent research about stress, trauma, and resilience. You can start whenever you like—and since it’s self-paced, you can take as long as you need.

In this course, you’ll:

  • Build your resilience, by recovering from prior stress and healing from trauma
  • Improve your decision-making and your ability to access choice during challenge
  • Create more effective relationships, especially during stress and conflict

Each instructional module contains several 5- to 20-minute self-paced video lessons and interactive activities that guide you through the course in small, digestible pieces. You’ll practice guided exercises each day for 10-30 minutes—during small intervals throughout the day—so that by the end of the course, you’ll have established a sustainable mind fitness practice. You’ll receive support and guidance through weekly emails and a FAQ database. You’ll also receive access to 12 monthly live Q&A calls with me.

MMFT’s first four modules focus on the neurobiology of stress, trauma, and resilience—and introduce the basic exercises for self-regulation. The second four modules teach about habits, decision-making, emotions, social interactions, and conflict—and introduce more advanced exercises for self-regulation interpersonally.
