Mindfulness develops attention, concentration and the ability to simply be present with little or no future orientation, past orientation or goal orientation—choosing to be a human being rather than a human doing.

SNAP! From Chaos to Calm
Helping you move out of emotional chaos and into a state of calmness, my SNAP Method introduces evidence-based mindfulness practices that are easy to learn, remember, and do anywhere, even in the heat of the moment.
SNAP! is for time-constrained people who desperately need new responses to life stressors while still juggling their daily worlds of family, work, relationships, health, and home.
Attitude is Everything!
What attitude do we bring to our practice?
If we can look at what is there with an attitude of open heartedness and curiosity, with a loving quality towards ourselves, and a willingness to meet our experience as it is, that is mindfulness at work.
But then what? Would you like to help yourself if the feelings you are sitting with don’t feel nice?
Add self-compassion and take action!
Self-Compassion practice warms up Mindfulness practice. It teaches us HOW to actively comfort and sooth ourselves when we feel bad.
Self compassion is about goodwill.

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded.
It’s a relationship between equals.
Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others.
Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.
— Pema Chodron
