Alison Keane Educating in Mindfulness
Mobile 0402 795 796
Mindfulness is the art and practise of living in the present moment. When we develop the skills to do this - skills including breath awareness, meditation and mindfulness in communication - stressful times are less likely to cause us suffering. And pleasant experiences will bring us the joy we truly deserve. This is the work that I do. I call it 'building up the mindfulness muscle'.
