Why should I learn and practice mindfulness meditation?

Mindfulness is awareness. It's a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. When we practice mindfulness we develop a superpower to be more aware of what we are actually doing, how our thoughts and feelings are swaying us, and the effects of our environment/culture. We develop the ability to learn to respond with our best selves instead of reacting from our emotions and fear-based thinking.

“Attending the MBSR class with Melissa Taylor has made my life brighter and more manageable. She facilitates an open environment where sharing personal insights becomes something to look forward to, yet it’s not required. There is never pressure to share, just an openness if you feel it’s right for you. Over the years I have dabbled in meditation, and this course took me to a new level of understanding myself, relationships, and inner acceptance. I highly encourage anyone who thinks mindfulness might be for them, to subscribe to this class with Melissa. You won’t regret it. Learning to love oneself is a gift and this class will nurture that gift”
