“The most heartbreaking thing of all is how we cheat ourselves of the present moment”
- Pema Chodron
Calming the mind through meditation is a powerful and vital tool for happiness, healthy relationships and vitality.

Cutting through those discursive thoughts and refinding our center is the path of meditation.

"You must learn to sit with the restless, painful energy and not let the momentum pull you under and cause you to do the same thing over and over that's ruining your life and the lives of those around you." – Pema Chodron
