PureView108 began in 2004 with the beginning of the Tiger Rider Series... an 8 week mindfulness course developed by Mark Joseph. Having spent a year with the Indian & Tibetan mindfulness schools overseas, Mark spent an intensive 3 year period studying and refining his understanding and experience of mindfulness and meditation. This was the foundation of the Tiger Rider Series.
Together with Marloes Janssen they created workshops on Mindful Movements which became an extention of the 8 week course.
In 2011 the Tiger Rider Series grew into PureView108... a tailor made Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course created specifically for the corporate world.
Over the years, through their influence and guidance, many satellite mindfulness groups have been created all over Johannesburg. The Pure View108 facilitators have run workshops in wellness centres, yoga studios, guest houses and companies.
Our wish is to affect the culture of each organization we teach so that a long lasting effect is felt, one of mindful attention, care and well being.
The 6 week course on offer is the shell of a much greater offering. Companies or groups can choose to extend their interest by joining our weekend retreat programs for a more intensive mindfulness experience.
It gives us joy to say that some of the delegates have even become facilitators themselves due to the effectiveness of the program. To encourage more facilitators we are currently running a 15 week teacher training workshop for those who would like to teach full time.
There is a huge demand for teachers as the awareness grows of the benefits of the philosophy and practice grows.
