Hello My Friends!

I hope you had a nice Labor Day weekend! 

As many of you know, I have been practicing mindfulness for over 6 years now, and while I've always taught mindfulness in secular settings, I've always tried to hold as true as I can to the Buddhist fundamentals in which this practice is predicated upon.

Mindfulness is one of the eight ways (referred to as the Eight-Fold Path) that the Buddha discovered as a pathway to eternal happiness. In a nutshell, what the Buddha was really trying to figure out was how to reduce his suffering in a way that would last. (Btw, I always found the word suffering to be a powerfully strong word, so feel free to use the word that you most relate to. And remember, how "suffering" is defined will vary from person to person, but as I always say, "suffering has no hierarchy," - if it's your pain, then own it. We don't need to compare our pain to someone else's to make it valid.) 

There are a variety of things that can cause our suffering, and I'm going to spend the next few weeks, (through my social media posts on Facebook and Instagram, my newsletters, as well as a weekly Facebook live video every Friday at 8:30am) teaching and guiding you in these fundamentals of mindfulness so you can begin to practice how to cultivate new, effective tools for creating responses to life's challenges. My goal is to help you reduce your suffering so you can live more freely, fully, and authentically. 

So, your very first lesson to reduce your suffering: free yourself from expectations. To learn more about what this means, be sure to follow my social media posts all week. The links to my Facebook and Instagram are down below if you don't already follow me. I promise to provide you value-rich content that you'll be able to apply right away.

So, I’m guess we all share the same problem – that is the loud voice inside your head that tells you mean things, has a harsh tone of voice, criticizes you and treats you worse than your own worst enemy. Can you relate? Do you know what I’m talking about? Yup -it’s that darned inner […]
