Mountain Mindfulness: Stanley Glacier Hike
Changing our brain setting from Automatic Pilot to Awareness. It is going from Mindlessness to awareness of our world around us and our thoughts and actions. We want to make our thoughts and actions fit with our values and goals in life.
Mindfulness originated in philosophy with the intent to embrace a way of being present in the world. Mindfulness means to be aware of what is happening in our present experiences, observing with compassion, insight and intention to create joy.
Mindfulness helps us to: strengthen inner peace, prevent stress, sharpen our senses and see clearly what is happening, avoid falling into the trap of reacting unconsciously, and to be fully present.
