The Meaning of Mindfulness (overview)

Quiet Mind Seminars introduces a new workshop series beginning this Thursday January 13th (details here) entitled The Meaning of Mindfulness.

Mindfulness is in fashion. It’s a great way to savor the present moment and enjoy life to the full. That’s good, but it barely touches on the huge potential of the mindful lifestyle. As a way of life, mindfulness is just one component of the continual effort to wake up and remain attentive. When paired with critical reflection it increases insight and focus in everything you do, creating an effective gap between stimulus and response, leading you away from stressful automaticity and towards intuition and creativity. Mindfulness makes you think of freedom in a completely new way.    Register here for this eight-week workshop.
