Mindfulness and Self Care
“Mindfulness is simply a clear, non-judgmental awareness of your inner and outer worlds. In particular, it’s an awareness of the flow of experience in your inner world – an alert observing of your thoughts, emotions, body sensations, desires, memories, images, personality dynamics, attitudes, etc.”
R. Hanson & R. Mendius

“We can make our minds so still like water
That beings gather around us
That they may see their own images,
And so live for a moment with a clearer,
Perhaps even fiercer life, Because of our quiet.”
William Butler Yeats
