Learn how each of us can meet each moment with deep peace, insight, and expansive awareness.
Have you noticed? In today's fast-paced and stress-filled world, many of us find ourselves living lives of quiet desperation. How often do we find ourselves regretting the past or worrying about the future? Many of us feel so scattered and inattentive we have lost the ability to solve even the most simple of problems. Life's constant pressures and daily distractions have eroded our self-confidence and inner peace to such an extent that we have become despondent and dispirited. Through a simple, fully integrated five-step practice, each of us can learn to live and work more consciously and compassionately in the present moment. By Awakening the Mindful Self, we can release the painful effects of the past and transform each moment into a blooming paradise.
