What is mindfulness?
“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” -Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. We all already have the capacity to be present, and it doesn’t require us to change who we are. But we can cultivate these innate qualities with simple practices that are scientifically demonstrated to benefit us in many ways.
What is expressive writing?
Expressive writing is an exercise that creates awareness and space between you and your thoughts, positive or negative. It comes from our core and is a personal and emotional writing process without regard to writing conventions like spelling, punctuation, and verb agreement. It's an invitation to turn off our inner critic and our inner grammarian. Expressive writing pays no attention to propriety: it simply expresses what is on your mind and in your heart.
She's saturated her art, work and life with intention and regular self-development in order to expand her boundaries of connection and impact, and is inspired to create space where other women can come together to be gently yet powerfully guided and nourished by their already present inner wisdom, as well as the energy of one another in a community circle.
