So here I am at the end of my mindfulness course and my weekly blog.  Our final session is a celebration of all that we have learned and everyone is feeling very grateful and maybe a tiny bit sad that it’s all over.  We have all become quite bonded by our experience an...

Heading into our penultimate class, I can’t believe how quickly the Mindfulness Based Living Course is coming to an end.  I’ve started to notice this week that when I get tired this effects the way I connect to others and how my mind has a habit of continuing to keep g...

What Stress?

I pride myself on being laid back.  When everyone around me is losing it over the latest family/work/school crisis, I am the person who can take a step back and look at things rationally.  I am the voice of common sense in a busy, noisy group.  I’m not big...
