Toronto Mindfulness Centre (TMC) is a secular mindfulness initiative founded in Toronto in 2017 by Deepak Kashyap, an Indian immigrant with over 7 years of experience in the field of Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation. He has an M.Ed. in psychology from the University of Bristol.

TMC provides mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) to reduce and manage day-to-day stress, anxiety, productivity issues and depressive blues. It works with corporations, groups, individuals, and educational institutes in providing mindfulness-based solutions through:

  • Focus, productivity and team building workshops
  • Improving relationships with coworkers, clients and loved ones
  • General and specific training in mindfulness and yoga
  • Targeted community work with black, LGBTQ+, other persons of colour, and indigenous first nations, in building emotional resolve and resilience to face life’s daily challenges.
  • Programming tailored for support groups (people living with HIV/AIDS, bereavement, parents and loved ones of queer individuals, etc.)
  • Meditation and yoga for teenagers and adolescents

TMC engages in teaching and training customized courses in Yoga and Mindfulness to achieve the above-mentioned goals.

TMC does not function as a clinic for psychotherapy or any other medical clinic. It is purely a professional and self-development centre.
