My practice has allowed me to come home to myself and learn the value of just being rather than always doing. As a result my doing has more intention and impact. Meditating daily allows me to listen to myself and take inspired action. Whenever there is a pause in my day or I am waiting in line or for my computer, I reconnect with my breath and breathe in and out intentionally, which reconnects me to the present moment and supports me in paying attention on purpose. Mindfulness is the foundation of my self-nurturing practice and I am so grateful!

I know for me it has changed my world. It has reconnected me to my divine essence and has changed every interaction I have…be it with myself, others, animal and plant life.

Recently, I’ve been doing some in-depth self-study by reading Lama Surya Das (Awakening the Buddha Within is a perfect book for East meets Western mind), and Stephen Cope’s The Wisdom of Yoga. I find a real connection between connecting to our true self in meditation and also in writing.
