It’s all about Awareness…

Founded by Zac Parish, the Awareness Academy’s vision is to have mindfulness & wellness practices as standard in the workplace. To have empowered, compassionate & mindful leaders in all businesses. When we cultivate more awareness we start to realize that happiness truly is an inside job. We can then get more control of our mind, and in turn our health.  The Awareness Academy’s courses impart powerful tools & techniques work. They help both leaders and staff awaken the innate happiness and contentment within, for the benefit of ourselves and others.
