Mindfulness is the attitude that reveals our actual moment-to-moment experience. Jointly, mindfulness and compassion are the antidote to our over emphasized negative bias. When practiced intentionally, mindfulness and compassion awaken us to the riches and joys that lay within our 'ordinary' lives.Glenda Irwin
For the respite that it gives from the struggles and strains of living our busy, time poor lives. Practicing mindfulness gives us relaxed moments of clarity; peacefulness where our 'autopilot' setting normally ignites a constant sense of urgency. Mindfulness practice relieves stress, anxiety, depression, overwhelming emotions, strain, pain, the inner critic, shame, guilt, doubt, anger. Name your poison - mindfulness soothes all manner of human distress.
Mindfulness is a practice that originated more than 2 millennia ago but today it is recognized and supported by modern scientific findings as a way to train the brain towards an 'in charge' response rather than 'fight, flight or freeze' reactions.
Because it has been proven - scientifically, spiritually and practically - as an effective way to find the joy of living.
