Why Practice Mindfulness & Meditation? Part 1

If you are new to mindfulness, congratulations on finding one of the most powerful practices for a better life! I know this because I began mindfulness study and practice over 20 years ago and have worked with 100s of clients to change their lives through mindfulness practices, and all of us feel it’s the most […]

What do you like to play?

I keep thinking about building forts as a kid.  I loved pulling out all the blankets and turning the living room into a fortress or a cave or a tea-house!  So today, I ignored my grown-up mind, took the blankets off the bed and off the back of the couch, built myself a fort and […]

Mindful Eating – Consider the Source

The Mindful Life Community in Action “I wake up every morning, torn between a desire to save the whales, attain enlightenment, visit the Dalai Lama or go back to bed.
