The Gift of Mindfulness
November 5, 2014
Hosted by Laurie Hibbard
Life today is a smorgasbord of offerings, and we tend to take advantage of all we can, as quickly as we can. From food to activities to possessions, there is so much to choose from that we wind up sampling a little of everything. The drawback to doing so is that we consume it all in haste and without thinking, thereby losing our connection with our thoughts, our bodies, the people around us and our environment. The end result is feeling uncomfortably full, unable to sleep and wondering why we didn’t make better choices. Is there a more desirable way to approach life so that we feel more satisfaction and less stress? My guest this week is Tracey Delfs, life coach, yoga teacher and student of renowned Zen Master, Thich Nhat Hanh. Join us as she shares her thoughts on how we can bring the gift of mindfulness to the buffet of life.
