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 soon they can help you, too.

I am excited to announce that the online version of Mindfulness-based Mind Fitness Training (MMFT)® is almost here! The online course with Sounds True launches on November 16, 2020.

When I first started collaborating with Sounds True to create this online course, I had no idea that a global pandemic would be on the horizon—or that 2020 would turn into such a stressful and traumatic year. 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.

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.

Best of all, if you enroll before the November 16 launch, you can access the course for half off!
