Powerful tools to help young people and adults achieve authentic balance in their lives.
Our body is a living mandala. All of its parts must work together to survive. What affects one part ultimately affects the others. In its natural state, it is perfectly balanced. Nothing needs to be added or taken away. However, we do need to maintain it. This is accomplished through exercise, a healthy diet, and rest.
In our early years, days were filled with a wondrous, natural curiosity about how the world worked. Somehow, between birth and the present, the exuberant, carefree life of a child was lost; misplaced like an old toy. Mindfulness is simply learning to stop, look, and listen. It is about being here, not there; now, not earlier or later.
The mind is like a mirror. As we get older, it develops blemishes, scratches, and haziness. These are the obstacles that we encounter through life. These obstacles include fear, anxiety, jealousy, anger, etc. Meditation is simply a way to clear your mind, getting it closer to its original state of clarity or emptiness.
