Mindfulness - Be present in this moment in a friendly and non-judgmental way.

Mindfulness is simply being present for your life! Each of us possesses the capacity for mindfulness, but many of us spend very little time in the present moment. We tend to dwell in the past or spin ourselves into the future with our thoughts. Staying present can be challenging especially when we are experiencing difficult emotions or situations.

Life happens right now in the present moment! Let us show you how to step away from the regrets of the past and the fear of the future. Action can only take place in the present moment.

Bring your attention to this moment with the intention of being fully present and create the future that you want. Let us help you reach that place of being fully mindful.

Mindfulness Meditation is about being present in the moment in a non-judgmental way. It allows us to drop away from the overactive thinking mind and simply be. It allows us to focus on the space where we can notice what’s happening in our thoughts, feelings, and body. When we listen we become informed and unlock the inner wisdom that each of us carries inside.

We are NOT our thoughts. We are NOT our emotions. We are NOT our mistakes. These things do not define us, they inform us! They are our gifts, but all too often we allow them to determine who we are and how we live our lives.

Mindfulness and meditation provide us the opportunity to see with more clarity, to learn about our authentic selves, and to respond consciously to the moments in our lives rather than react in unskillful ways. These opportunities arise when we allow ourselves the time and space to become still and quiet. Meditation is not about “blanking out” or “blissing out”, it is about sitting quietly with ourselves, tapping into our own goodness, our own personal experience within our own body.

We all possess the capacity to be mindful. Once we begin to experience and cultivate this practice we invite peace and ease to our present situation;  joy and well-being into our lives.
