Free Self-Compassion Exercises

  Dear friends, We all suffer (or at least I do). Why not wish ourselves the same care that a loved one would offer us?

How To Build Confidence Talking About Mindfulness

Dear friends, One of the keys to teaching mindfulness is having a sense of confidence, trust and faith in yourself and in your mindfulness teaching process.

About Mindfulness Exercises

Do you experience a desire to live more mindfully? It’s an increasingly common feeling. There’s a worldwide trend that many of us have felt the effects of, even if we can’t quite put our finger on what’s happening. We rely more upon technology. We spend more hours at work, or commuting to and from our office. We’re less active, or we eat more processed food. We get less time with our families. All of these things are part and parcel of a modern lifestyle, and they can leave us feeling distant and detached from our true selves.
