Mindfulness Meditation is about learning to experience life fully as it unfolds - moment by moment. It provides a greater sense of well-being and enthusiasm for life, as well as improved self-esteem. There is an increased ability to cope with stress and pain and to deal with life’s challenges in a calm and constructive manner.

This capacity to be present brings deep levels of joy as we begin to see the many blessings that are already here, in each simple moment, no matter what situation we find ourselves in.
- Eckhart Tolle
