Take a Mindful Pause

I know for me, even after 41 years of mindfulness meditation practice, that I can still at times be swayed by habitual actions, chores, and activities without granting too much attention to them.

Real Happiness Week Two: Day Nine: Sensation Meditation

Today, we are focused on sensations. I spoke to this a little in yesterday’s post as well as taught the meditation in my Monday Everyday Mindfulness class.
