Meditation helps keep you rested and ready for living. It enhances the rhythm of your energy and attention in the flow of your daily life. – Camille Maurine
Mindfulness meditation is a form of meditation that involves setting aside time to practice paying deliberate attention to the present moment with an attitude of openness, curiosity, and non-judgment. It is a practice rooted in ancient Buddhist traditions but has gained popularity in secular settings as a way to reduce stress, improve mental well-being, and cultivate a greater sense of awareness.
During mindfulness meditation, the aim is to observe the flow of thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations without getting caught up in them or reacting to them. The emphasis is on simply being aware of the present moment as it unfolds, accepting it as it is, and letting go of judgment or attachment.
Regular practice of mindfulness meditation can help individuals develop greater self-awareness, concentration, and emotional resilience. It can also enhance one’s ability to manage stress, anxiety, and other mental and emotional challenges.

When I say “Practice” I don’t mean repeating an act until you get it right. In this use, it means to instil regular discipline to accomplish a specific task, ritual without which we feel incomplete, or that our experience of each day is less. ~S. Kelley Harrell
Informal Mindfulness is when you simply attempt to be more aware in everything you do! When you tap into the present moment, the spark of infinite possibilities exists here so you can then synchronize your energy to a future reality, and can begin to draw experiences to you in the form of new opportunities, synchronicities, and coincidences in your life.
Yet, Mindfulness is a skill that requires practice and patience and when we are using meditation to practice. Regardless of whether or not you decide to practice with me, finding a group that you resonate with or finding someone who can guide you during meditation will help you develop the informal mindfulness that really is the basis of mindfully living.
