Namaste

While our journey's may be very different, the underlying truth of our Shared Human Experience remains the same.

Perhaps sharing the epiphanies and realizations of my journey also inspire you to realize that underneath it all we are all the same.

Starting a Free Mindfulness Course!

Before going to bed last night, I printed the materials to create the free course in Mindfulness; planned to start this Sunday.

"Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment..."    - Jon Kabat-Zinn

For most of us, when this happens, it's unexpected, maybe while walking on a mountain trail on a crisp autumn day, or being so focused in work or play that you are not thinking about past or future, or connecting with someone in a way that makes it seem like time is standing still. This state of being alive and whole in the present moment is always available, but it typically eludes us, especially in times of difficulty and external pressures.

"Mindfulness" is used in many contexts nowadays and there are many different understandings of the term. Diana Winston of UCLA's Mindful Awareness Research Center gives my favorite definition: Paying attention to present moment experience with open curiosity and a willingness to be with what is.

While this quotation from the course's Introduction gives a good taste of what Mindfulness is, the video I watched was truly excellent and inspiring!

If you don't treat yourself with love and respect, other people won't either.
Learn to love yourself, warts and all, and everyone else will do the same.
