I have experienced great joy and growth through creating and running this site, and I’m happy to know that it makes a difference in peoples’ lives.
From an early age, before I could even articulate the concept of ‘mindfulness’, I strove for a sense of peace, ease, and balance in my daily life. As a lifelong student of meditation, it has become increasingly apparent to me the need to make mindfulness accessible ~ and applicable ~ to the masses. Mindfulness is for everyone, not just the monk on the mountaintop! The Chinese character for mindfulness is derived from the words “presence” and “heart.” Mindfulness is a natural state of being, that anyone and everyone can leverage to make their own lives, and the lives of others, better. It is pure awareness, a stillness of mind and heart.
Our world today is so demanding and full of distractions that it has become vital that we, as individuals, learn to incorporate mindful practice into our modern lives. The Mindful Now is here to provide modern souls with simple steps, gentle reminders, and loving support in their journey.
