The Beginning

Living in Mindfulness is a space that I've created where I will share ideas, insights into life, health tips, recipes, books, authors, quotes, ideas - personal and borrowed - for all to learn and grow from.

I have spent the last 9 years of my life exploring different cultures, ways of life, spiritual practices, traditional medicines, eating habits and exercise choices in an attempt to create a holistically mindful life for myself. By holistically mindful I refer to my intent to be fully aware of how I eat, speak, work, and exercise and to do all these tasks in a way that does not harm myself, my family, my community, or the environment. I also I believe it to be my responsibility to make the changes I wish to see in the world in my own life and share my insights for those would like to hear.

I also know that I sill have much to learn and practice in this life. What I've discovered through my explorations is just the tip of a much greater iceberg of knowledge, experience and practice. I draw great inspiration from Thich Nhat Hanh, Lauren Hill, Sri Swamini Mayatitananda, Khalil Gibran, Stephen Levine, Bob Marley, Hafiz, Rumi, Dr. Vasant Lad among others. I welcome any and all comments and ideas.
