A warm welcome to you. Whatever your experience or background, you are welcome.
Whether you are new to mindfulness, or familiar and experienced with mindfulness, you are greeted here cordially with graciousness. Bring your curiosity and interest here mindfully. Explore what is present and learn practices in support of health and wellbeing.
My name is Robin Boyer. I offer courses and blog about mindfulness in daily life. Mindfulness, often defined as awareness arising from focusing on the present, without stories or judgement, has been available to study and practice for many decades. There is growing evidence-based support that mindfulness may contribute to an increase in wellness for many people.
Mindfulness may open senses of the body, the heart and the mind. Exploring inherent qualities within your own being. Based on these qualities, you can build practices that contribute to calmness, compassion and kindness, even when challenging conditions arise in life. Offering goodwill to yourself and others.
If you are curious to learn more about mindfulness, do reach out to me via my email at email@example.com
May you be well. Robin

"Mindfulness has changed how I perceive the world. In mindfulness practice I find peace and joy--and I find the center of my being. There are several practices which I do daily and each one is a source of kindness, happiness, and power."
“Robin’s calming voice and inclusive and welcoming presence is such a treat! I learned a lot about how to incorporate mindfulness in my daily life and to slow down. These are tools that I use in my vocation and my personal life. Robin has a way of building relationships within a group setting that creates a space where each member is welcome, valued, respected, and heard.”
