GREETINGS FROM THE NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
As I look forward to my new role, I foresee regular blog posts by myself and others to help our readers – whether you’re just beginning your training or deepening it – make the most of your mindfulness practice. Having recently read articles offering advice on how to get along with people of opposing political views – especially when holidays dictate proximity to people we may love and butt heads with – I was inspired to write about how mindfulness can help us invite the better angels of our nature to call.
To you and yours from us at Applied Mindfulness Training, best wishes for a happy holiday season and a peaceful and prosperous 2017! — Carol
LIFE IS FULL OF SURPRISES
“If anything, the experience of encountering mortality was strangely reassuring…” Patton Hyman is featured on Shambhala’s Aging Hub, sharing the story of how serious illness affirmed his relationship to mindfulness.
