    Mindfulness meditation is the practice that brings mindful awareness to our daily experience, moment to moment. Being in the present. Mindfulness is the practice that quiets the noise inside our minds.

    The practice of mindfulness is very simple:
    • You stop
    • You breathe
    • You quiet your mind.

    Mindfulness gives you the inner space and quietness that allows you to look deeply to find out who you are, and what you want to do with your life.“Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake in the present. It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment.”  ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
