So very grateful that I came across the writings about mindfulness by John Kabit-Zinn and the principles he employs at the Stress Reduction Clinic. Breathing is at the heart of it all and my breath has certainly been my anchor over the last couple of years.
Breathing brings me into the present, it shuts up the noisy mind monkeys and cultivates mindfulness. Being mindful has opened me up to experiencing droplets, rain showers and rivers of joy. And for THAT I am extremely grateful.
The impact has been huge.
