Mindfulness Training: An Inside Job!


Safer Mindfulness instruction and training: For dealing with the narrator in our heads, relentless parade of thoughts and preoccupations, our reactivity, bewildering emotions, habitual ways we do things, and our perpetual busyness.

Through mindfulness-awareness meditation and related practices--which can be done anywhere, anytime--we begin to develop a way of being that is rooted in sanity and simplicity. We begin to discover insight, intelligence, and compassion, which, as it turns out, have been with us all along!
