Mindful Mama Alert

  Mindfulness can empower you to experience a greater sense of joy and satisfaction in the simplest of acts.

Living Mindfully!

I have found that one of the greatest things I can help my clients with is how to live mindfully – fully embracing the present moment and using the experiences around them for grounding.

How the heck do you meditate? (AKA Meditation, Trusting Yourself, and Mumford & Sons)
