MIndfulness for Kids

Wild and crazy bullies! They just won’t sit still! Can kids be taught to be more mindful, to hear, think, be present to what is? Mindfulness, we hear, is good for adults, and it is great for kids too. Mindfulness allows children to improve their abilities to pay attention, stay calm and improve their decision-making skills. Kids are able to

Find Nothing with Mindfulness

Mindfulness is not for everyone.  It asks us to step away from the movie of our lives and ask ourselves, as the star of our own show, who are you? Are you your name, your job, your height, your experiences, the sum total of your life, or is there more to you?  Are you more than the parts, scripts, words,

Mindfully – Recovering from Trauma

Who amongst us has not had a terrible response to a situation?  It may be something simple, from when you were a kid.  When mommy and daddy left you to go to the bathroom.  Or, it could have been your average television show, where you watch a person, who gets killed, with a knife to the throat, and you watched

Practice P.E.A.C.E.

Practive P.E.A.C.E whenever you can.  In today’s stressful society we need to get calm, clear and connected with what really matters in our lives. When we are aware of our thoughts and feelings, we can choose our behavior, and choose and create our lives that are meaningful, guided by the things that we value, that give us purpose.  We can

Mindfulness, Fights and Challenges

About 25 years ago, my philosophy in life was that “life was meant to be a struggle.” From the moment of birth we all experience difficulties, who doesn’t? In this earth school, we get a right amount of confusion to live and learn. If we don’t learn, we don’t live long. But is life meant to be a struggle? Or,

Mindfulness – Riding the Wave

A tidal wave of emotions can seem to control all our thoughts and deeds. We can be pulled, swirled, dragged out to sea, with a flood of emotions and they are everywhere. The world runs on emotions and if we cannot learn to surf the waves, or navigate the deep and shallow, we can be found thirsty and or drowned

Physical Mindfulness

Physically and Environmentally Mindful The physical environments we live in can help us to get more focused and enable us to practice mindfulness.  By using the concept of Feng Shui, leveraging the elements of fire, water, earth, air, color, texture, and sound, we can create sacred interiors.  With mindfulness practice we focus on the physical environment, sensations in different body

Don’t Get Hooked – Work Mindfulness

Don’t get hooked by a wandering mind. When we are sleepwalking, not focused, not paying attention, our mind can wander to thoughts of the past, anxieties of the future and negativity about what we can or can’t do.  When this happens we can get hooked, triggered or caught up in problems, insecurities, delusion. By working mindfulness, we have the opportunity to

Transform, Integrate,Practice

Mindful awareness is not just a way of “doing” something but a way of being. The more times you practice it, the more you are aware of what it is. Mindfulness helps you to transform, to see more and integrate more of the outside with your inside.  It’s like moving from black and white to high definition color television.  This
