CDEV081 - Foundations of Mindfulness Practice
In this world of hyperconnectivity, the act of slowing down at home and work may feel like a long-forgotten luxury. Mindfulness meditations and the attitudes associated with the practices can help us to pause and notice our inner and outer worlds. From this place of pausing, we can then make decisions with clarity which will be skillful for ourselves, others and the planet at home, in community and in workplace settings.
