As you can read in our mandate, Point In Time provides valuable services to families and individuals all over Haliburton County, helping residents reach their absolute highest potential.
Delivering Both Traditional and Innovative Services
While at times this assistance is delivered in a more established and traditional manner, every so often we have the chance to initiate something that is both extremely helpful and highly innovative. Such is the case with Mindfulness Martial Arts, a unique pilot project done in collaboration with the Integra Foundation and the Trillium Lakelands District School Board.
Mindfulness Martial Arts in Haliburton County
Mindfulness Martial Arts, first adopted by the Haliburton High School in 2014, is the only one programs of its kind in the province. It shows students how to adapt the physical and mental disciplines of martial arts into the daily challenges they might face.
Beginning with techniques that teach the simple art of breathing and how it can help create a calm mental state, participants learn new ways of dealing with occasionally persistent problems. Students also engage in actual physical (but non-combative) martial arts techniques that illustrate how an active body can create a peaceful mind.
The Haliburton version of MMA, which has already proven to be an unqualified success on many levels, has given Point In Time yet another valuable resource to help enrich the lives of so many. We couldn’t be more honoured to have played a key role in bringing this incredibly enriching program to the County.
