Growing up and living under the same roof as a registered nurse, I remember reading through medical textbooks and thinking about the connection with mind and body, ‘there must be a way to prevent all these diseases’.
That notion has stuck with me and contributed to my vegetarian diet and reasons to live a more holistic life. Past trauma, life experiences, low-self esteem, media influences and many other factors attributed to my journey and dance with quieting my mind and learning to bring awareness and consciousness into my thought patterns, responses, and way of living.
I recently lived in Thailand for almost a year. I saw how students practiced mindfulness during school, and over the years I had developed my own practice, this lead me to begin studying with Mindful Schools (thanks for the referral Shana!).
I dug deep into learning more on the science and research of mindfulness in adults and in youth. The findings in myself and over 30+ years of research told me that mindfulness can and will positively change and benefit our lives. Mindfulness in youth is especially important to me because I see the value in its ability to allow space for us to reflect and that space allows us to decide on how we can respond vs. react to an impulse -putting ownership back on the individual.
This empowered me to create a virtual space to connect and expand mindfulness, movement and self-care practices.
