Life today is very different from what it was even fifty years ago. With constant access to our mobile devices and an infinite library at our fingertips, we are provided with information that could easily fill our minds 24 hours a day, each day of our lives.


Why is mindfulness catching so many people’s attention? Because its simple, effective and applicable to everyone. Regardless of your age, race or status, mindfulness works.
