Mindful Practices

In 1953 Krishnamurti is noted as saying “Conventional education makes independent thinking extremely difficult.”  But the freedom to think independently and approach life fresh each day is a privilege that eludes many.  If you commit to a single mindful exercise every day you will experience a different sense of being. Taking one day at a time, one moment at a time, step into our Mindful Meeting Place every Monday and feel the difference.
