The Path to Non-Judgment

In my journey to becoming more mindful about my life, my present, my actions, I've discovered many new things along the way. Taoism, which I've spoken about before was one of those new things. To me, it's a philosophy, perhaps a spiritual one,  but still a philosophy nonetheless. I've also discovered news things on a… Continue reading The Path to Non-Judgment

As Summer Begins, A Process Unfolds

Yes, I know the season of summer doesn't actually begin for a few weeks now, but for a teacher, well, it starts the moment you leave that building for the last time.

My plan for this… Continue reading Not Quite As Planned

A Breakthrough

If you're like me, you try new things and a lot of the time, they just don't stick. And you're right back to when you started.

The Journey Explained

As I mentioned in the opening post, my path through Mindfulness began when I stumbled across the Calm app on my iPhone, looking to just get some quiet in my brain.  I suffer from an Anxiety Disorder that has rather taken over most of my life the past few years. I decided I needed to… Continue reading The Journey Explained
