To cultivate mindfulness is to cultivate conscious awareness of present experience without judgment. Creating the capacity for love, peace, and harmony through the ancient art of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion.

To cultivate mindfulness is to cultivate conscious awareness of present experience without judgment. Our tendency is to cling to illusions of permanence. We want to hold onto things and keep them as they are so that we will feel safe. This clinging creates anxiety and unease. When we practice mindfulness, we become aware of this anxiety and unease in both ourselves and in others. Thus sympathy and compassion for self and others emerge with increasing power as we gain insight into impermanence and the constructed nature of the self. Sympathy and compassion for ourselves inform the gentle, accepting quality of mindful attention, giving our mind permission to open to further insight. And this, in turn, helps empower an increasingly compassionate and discerning awareness of others in their conscious and subconscious sufferings.
