My mission in life is to affect positive change in the world before I leave earth. The primary way I do this is by teaching mindfulness. I’ve been hosting Mindfulness Meetups both in-person around Philadelphia and on Google Hangouts. To stay tuned about when I’m doing these, Like my Facebook Page.

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Look it up and you’ll find this definition (or something like it):
If you can bring your mind, body and spirit into the present moment, you achieve mindfulness. It’s about being aware of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations.
Living mindfully means being aware of what goes on around you, what impact you are having on others, and also what goes on in your inner world, your thoughts, and your feelings. It means thinking about what you think about, thinking about what you feel, thinking about what you say, and thinking about what you do. Mindful living makes us more reflective, less reactive, more empathic, compassionate, and more authentic. A mindfulness approach to life includes being open to more than your own perspective; breaking out of your habitual frame of mind and creating new possibilities; being open to learning and understanding new information instead of protecting and defending what you already know. It leads to welcoming and embracing difference. It involves getting to know yourself from the inside out.
THE BEST WAY TO ACHIEVE MINDFULNESS…
…is through meditation. Empty the mind, begin to draw all of your awareness to your breath. This is where you will find peace, in the soft release of your mind. Connect with your heart and soul. You are a being of love and light be sure you speak highly of yourself to yourself because you deserve it.
Meditate in as little as two minutes with my help:
Meditation allows us to slow down, unplug from the frenetic energy of the outer world and focus within. When we meditate, we experience the Source within us, our true Home of Light, love, wellbeing, joy and peace. We discover the Truth of who we really are – Pure Spirit, One with Source – when we let go of the past and future and relax into the present moment.
BENEFITS OF MINDFULNESS
Being mindful makes it easier to savor the pleasures in life as they occur, helps you become fully engaged in activities, and creates a greater capacity to deal with adverse events. By focusing on the here and now, many people who practice mindfulness find that they are less likely to get caught up in worries about the future or regrets over the past, are less preoccupied with concerns about success and self-esteem, and are better able to form deep connections with others.
