When I do not think, and only listen, one drop of rain on the roof is myself.
A body-centered approach to mindfulness lays the foundation for self-awareness, stress reduction, emotional intelligence, and healing the body-mind split. Mindfulness has been proven to be effective at reducing symptoms of anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and chronic pain. It’s been shown to increase the sense of wellbeing and help prevent relapse in depression and drug addiction; and improve memory, learning, and physical health.
Mindfulness is simply the act of being aware—consciously aware—and this connects us to ourselves, others, and all of life. I have taught mindfulness in a variety of settings and I use it as a starting point and foundation in all my work.
