Mindfulness is a general term that we use for awareness.  It is the activity of our mind when we are intentionally paying attention in the present moment with curiosity and kindness in an accepting and non-judgmental way. The negative judgments add layers of suffering to our experiences. We gain more ease as we learn to step back, to realize that we are more than our thoughts, emotions or body sensations.

Breathing is essential to our existence! But not all breaths are the same! In times of stress, the way we breathe can make the difference between being overwhelmed or regaining our balance. Breathing intentionally, eases the stress response, to enable us to re-gain clarity and to cultivate resilience.
