Pearl of the week

"Mindfulness is a way of being and remembering who you are and befriending your experiences, whether pleasant or unpleasant. You can return to the breath or another neutral point of focus at anytime and anyplace – whenever you feel agitated, confused, or overwhelmed – to re-center and feel more grounded. As you embark on the journey of cultivating mindfulness, remember that your intention, your commitment and self-discipline to practice, and how you approach it will have a considerable effect on how you will feel and what will emerge."
