“Mindfulness is the cultivation of Active Presence through disciplined practice which enables us to enter into a space of pure observation or awareness. With time and practice we develop the ability to be present to thoughts and emotions as they arise. We learn to sit and observe without judgment – or the compulsion to react. As we sit without judgment, we develop clarity of mind. We learn to see through habits and conditioning that have gathered around us over time and experience. We learn to see through these distortions to the unique sensations, emotions and thoughts that arise moment by moment from our own embodied experience. We see who we truly are.

When we see the depth of ourselves, we are empowered to make choices that are authentic to us.”

– Theodore Tsaousidis
