Have you ever sent the wrong text message to the exact wrong person? I have. In fact, I did it recently. I sent a message about a person TO THAT person—the horror! The consequence? Well, besides being cut from that person’s Christmas card list, I suffered a complete and utter shame attack.

What is mindfulness?
The great leaders of mindfulness, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Thich Nhat Hanh and Jack Kornfield, tell us that mindfulness is the art of paying attention to what you are doing and what is going on around you in the present moment.
The Meadows has been facilitating its signature workshop, Survivors, for more than 30 years. Many people’s lives have been changed by the opportunity to confront the deep emotional impact of their childhood trauma.
Dr. Terry Eagan, a psychiatrist and Senior Fellow at The Meadows, is often asked by his clients and colleagues, “How can I positively impact this world when there are so many difficulties everywhere I turn – so much ill will and destruction, so much tragedy, so many people suffering seemingly insurmountable odds?”

Have you ever jumped to conclusions, made brash decisions, dove into problem-mode solving mode instead of actively listening, or spoken too soon? I am guilty of all!
