“Research on mindfulness suggests that meditation builds resilience, boosts emotional intelligence, enhances creativity, improves your relationships, and helps you focus.”

Harvard Business Review, 2015

What is Mindfulness?

“Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.” – Psychology Today
