Join Craig Mollins, National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, and learn to tap into your inner resources to create more ease and inspiration.
Having Tourette Syndrome makes us want to avoid feeling our body. And reasonably so. However, as much as we avoid being in touch with our bodily experience, that much we are out of touch with a wealth of natural resources and strengths.
Hello, I’m Craig Mollins, the creator and instructor of this course, and I have Tourette syndrome. I know what it’s like to live with the struggle of Tourette’s and I’m passionate about helping others with TS find relief.
Because of the intensity of Tourette energy I experienced, from a very early age I was compelled to figure out how to calm my struggles. Throughout my life I’ve explored and trained in a wide range of healing and somatic practices, and in the process have learned a great deal about how to bring ease to the struggling body and mind.
Ease may feel out of reach if you have Tourette’s. But through simple practices done in a caring community atmosphere, you could suddenly relax and find yourself here and now.
Potential Program Benefits
During the course we’ll work with the following three processes, shaped specifically with the challenges of Tourette syndrome in mind:
- Sitting and walking mindfulness meditation
- Somatic practices to release and unwind tension
- Communication practices
We’ll practice an embodied mindfulness, in the form of brief periods of sitting and walking mindfulness with a specific focus for Tourette syndrome. A 2014 study of mindfulness for Tourette syndrome resulted in “significant reduction in tic severity and tic related impairments.”
These Tourette syndrome specific practices are designed to help you:
We’ll work with two communication methods that help you become more relaxed and confident with speech and communication, and to give everyone opportunities to learn from each other. These practices will also help us create a friendly supportive community.
These processes work together to create a “layered synergy” to activate significant benefit, including: body, mind, heart, and spirit. This is not a shift to a foreign new state, but rather a shift towards a more relaxed, authentic version of yourself.

Hello I’m Craig Mollins, a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, meditation teacher and passionate proponent of the human capacity for betterment. I hail from Halifax, Nova Scotia, a small city on the east coast of Canada, and currently live in Mexico City.
As a boy of 6 years old I began a healing path when I would return home after school feeling overwhelmed with tension, and would lay on my back for an hour of deep breathing to calm myself down and relax. At age 18 I began a lifelong training in Buddhist meditation, along with a wide spectrum of somatic, movement, and healing studies and practice.
Now, I’m thrilled and honoured to be making use of some of my experience and learning through this program for people who struggle with Tourette’s. May you find relief, and may we all find increasing levels of relief from struggle.
