Dr Craig Hassed is renowned as a pioneer for the use of mindfulness meditation within the medical world and beyond. Not only does he teach his students to use it within their medical practice, but he also encourages mindfulness for their personal use as a means of reducing stress and promoting focus during exams and study.

Dr Hassed has published many research papers and books on the benefits of mindfulness and Smiling Mind is honoured to have him as an ambassador.

The world needs mindfulness and in this fast-paced, stressed and distracted world, the children of today probably need it more than any previous generation. Smiling Mind is taking mindfulness meditation to where it is needed most – into the hearts and minds of young people. It’s more than just a technique, and more than just a life-skill. Mindfulness is a way of life.
