Mindfulness: From East to West
The Need for Mindfulness If you are like me, you live in a world of distraction. Multiple things have the potential of distracting us from what we intend to do. For example, you may be one of those people who log into the internet with the intention to look for something that would take few minutes, and then go back to what you were doing. However, what may happen? You start clicking on ads you see, articles, or images, and instead of being on the internet for 15 minutes, you stayed for an hour! This action distracted you from what was important and took precious time from your work; your family; your life. It is because of all these distractions that people are getting more and more into being present with their lives. Into being mindful. However, mindfulness didn’t start just few decades ago…it actually started with the Buddha! Ligia has a Masters Degree in Religious Studies and taught World Religions for 9 years in Miami Dade College. One of the favorite religions to teach with Buddhism! Susan D’Agostino is a Registered Nurse with more than 30 years of experience, who has specialized and is certified on Mindfulness. She teaches how to integrate mindfulness and health. We hope you join us in this journey from East to West.
