What is Mindfulness? MIND FULL or Mindful

Written by

Mindfulness is paying attention to the here and now with acceptance and non-judgement, (kindness and curiosity).

Therapeutic Trauma Sensitive Yoga

Written by
Reality is that life is not peaceful. Trauma can arise from any number of daily things, seemingly small to one person, yet overwhelming to another. Having experienced trauma, whether recently or in the past, one can feel like something is broken within us, wrong with us, or we feel damaged.

Mindfulness Meditation Workshop

Written by
“The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.” - Rumi Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation If you’ve tried a meditation practice you probably know how challenging it is to quiet our minds. You may have even experienced the incessant chatter that is the background to our everyday lives. Most people exist in this constant state and find it difficult to shift out of it, into the “rest and digest” parasympathetic mode. Essential to our health and well being is the ability to find periods of quiet, stillness and calm. Creating quiet space balanced with activity is important to…
