Mindfulness for Daily Life

Training in basic mindfulness as a tool for managing our emotions and controlling our thoughts and feelings. Covers mindfulness, concentration, attention and alertness. By training to develop and improve these mental skills we can make them into powerful transformational tools. Only with strong mindfulness can we bring our thoughts and feelings under control and thereby begin to manage our emotions. By using the mindfulness toolkit to develop and maintain pure intentions eventually we will eradicate all our negativity and enjoy a peaceful and happy mind all the time.
