"We may miss many moments of life because our minds are preoccupied with planning the future or worrying about the past.  Mindfulness practices help us to see clearly the activity of the mind.  Mindfulness practice can help us to stop where we are, in order to see more clearly what is happening.

Through the cultivation of stillness and purposeful attention, we begin to know and see more of our world.  In this way, we become less caught in constant doing, and learn to relax.

Through mindful awareness practices, we learn the art of facing dilemmas and problems - also called stress.  Facing our problems can lead to more effective functioning, and consequently to more joy and well-being."
