This group opened my eyes to liv­ing mind­ful­ly.… The prac­tice path that I am going down includes con­scious­ly slow­ing down, con­scious­ly pay­ing atten­tion, con­scious­ly breath­ing. One con­crete exam­ple is that in the nine or so months since that group I can count on one hand the num­ber of times that I’ve mis­placed my keys — or any­thing else that was in my hand. That may seem like a very small thing, yet it rep­re­sents a great deal and has reduced some lev­el of dai­ly stress.
