    So true that meditation is not about reaching for that higher bar. It took me awhile to realise this. It is about identifying accepting and being present with what is. Thank you, Janet for delivering the meaning of mindfulness with such clarity and ease.

    Thank you so much. Despite coming to the meditation late in my life, already being 60, I feel like I’m at the beginning of a nourishing journey & your talk & guided meditation has helped me to recognise where that journey needs to start. Much appreciated.

    This was a perfect way to complete the first day. We received so much, and now it was time to return to nurture that primary relationship, To be with the One I am, to accept my self as I am in this moment. Thank you.

    I really loved the idea of turning an empathetic attention toward myself as I would with a close friend. This sense of inner friendliness helping me to connect more strongly to the outside world.

  19. Suzanne May 18, 2017 at 9:39 am

    Thank you so much. I always welcome fresh perspectives on mindfulness. I found yours to be particularly helpful as I sit with an aging body – learning to love that – hmm:)
