"Mindfulness meditation is the most beneficial practice I have ever come across as far as my own mental wellness and I had been searching for a long time. I thought what could possibly be better for me than to learn as much as I can about this and share it with others."
"My mindfulness practice is a nourishing time, it's a stillness I crave and carefully cultivate, so as not to slip too far off track. Mindfulness helps me find joy in uncertainty and find depths of compassion for myself and others."
"When something difficult occurs in my life, I turn to meditation, not to clear my mind but to let the thoughts have their way. I see them all, which is what they want, and I don’t try to hold on to them."
