Passionate About Life
Being mindful and self-aware is a practice that brings me closer to the true meaning and simplicity of life.
I challenge myself to raise my level of consciousness, knowing full well that non-judgment and presence in “the here and now” are easier said than done. I support and inspire others in these life-changing processes.
In my various roles, as a wife, a mother, a conflict mediator, a coach and an adult trainer, I have realized that far too often we bring suffering into our lives, wasting time and energy that could otherwise serve us better.
I believe being mindful about our choices is something that implies practice and a purposeful effort but something we can all access.
So, if “mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgementally” (John Kabat-Zin), then, my mission is to spread this way of life in a kind and regenerative manner so we can all live a more harmonious life.
