“When we develop mindfulness we train ourselves to pay attention to our present experiences, we then can connect deeply and directly to what is actually happening. We can learn to be fully present with what is… and in doing so, experience a happiness and peace that is not dependent on outer circumstances. Insight Meditation has its foundation in Buddhist teachings but is non-sectarian and anyone, no matter what your chosen faith, can benefit. As neuroscience learns more about the function of the brain it becomes clear that small changes we make in our thinking can lead to big changes in our brain and our experience of life.”
