  • How Mindfulness Can Support You In Times of Uncertainty
    The recent events around the globe have thrown us into an unprecedented state of uncertainty.  It seems that no one can plan anything because we have no idea what tomorrow, much less next week or next month, will bring.

  • What I Learned from the Masters on Mindfulness, Healing & Stress Reduction
    With all the craziness going on in the world today (and ‘today’ could refer to now or 100 or 500 years ago), it’s easy to get caught up in the madness and lose our sense of ourselves.  The monkey mind picks up on the changes it sees and starts screeching because it hates changes.  It […]

  • The Mindful Guide to Sleeping Better
    We could all use more sleep.  Most of us are pushed to keep going, going, going to produce more, more, more.  Sleep is usually portrayed as some kind of necessary evil, to be reduced to as little time as possible.

  • How to Find Your Happiness In the Most Unlikely Place
    Society programs us from birth that whatever we have or achieve and whoever we are is never enough.  We’re subconsciously sent on a never-ending quest to accumulate more and better things, find better relationships, make ourselves different and “better,” achieve more goals, more, better, more, better… Every time you achieve your next goal, you’re happy […]
