MINDFULNESS

“…is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. We feel more alive. We also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation, and healing.”

~Jon Kabat-Zinn

Mindfulness is defined as “non-judgmental moment to moment awareness.” It is a paying attention on purpose in order to see, feel and experience the present moment.

The mind is a great tool...

but so often it distracts us from what is happening now when we worry or are caught up in memories.

By simply stopping and paying attention, one becomes the observer to thoughts & emotions, creating a gap to gain clear knowledge, allowing for a response rather than a reaction to life’s experiences.

Life is a dance. Mindfulness is witnessing that dance.

Amit Ray

We have only now, only this single eternal moment opening and unfolding before us, day and night.

Jack Kornfield

Don’t believe everything you think. Thoughts are just that – thoughts.

Allan Lokos

Mindfulness is there when you savor a bite of luscious dessert, when you feel the comfort of a warm embrace, when your heart leaps as you hear your favorite song being played… life is full of mindful moments – as long as you are paying attention.
