Mindfulness:  A State of Mind... and Body

Mindfulness practice begins with the premise that all human beings aspire to live full, happy and meaningful lives.  When we learn proven techniques of repeatedly shifting our attention back to the present, we can connect with the joyful moments of our daily lives and meet the challenges that arise with greater perspective and wisdom. We can then experience relief from physical and emotional suffering and transform our relationship with ourselves and others.
