Mindfulness for Life

“Get out of our heads and learn to experience the world directly, experientially, without the relentless commentary of our thoughts. We might just open ourselves up to the limitless possibilities for happiness that life has to offer us.”

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. This is not group therapy and you can participate as much as you like. It is a truly amazing opportunity to learn some life transforming skills. If you want to know what mindfulness is, it’s best to try it for a while.
