Meditation can be described as relaxation, altered states of awareness, suspension of logical thought, and maintenance of a self-observing attitude.

When an individual knows himself, he is no longer disturbed by the distractions in the outer world. Yoga Sutra 1.16



The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand. They are moments when we touch one another.

The two components of mindfulness

  • Awareness of one’s moment-to-moment experience 
  • Experience with nonjudgment and with acceptance.
