We can learn to be wiser and kinder. Meeting the Moment with Kindness is a practical guide to mindfulness that will change your life.

Our effort to develop mindfulness is not a small or simple undertaking, but one that is urgently needed. Many of us desire to slow down, quiet the mind and attain greater contact with our lives, but we get stuck in habits and behaviors that don't support our aspirations. This book can help us get unstuck by exploring three fundamental questions:

  • How do we develop the inner resources needed to care for ourselves and our world mindfully?

  • What stands in the way of living mindfully, seeing clearly and acting wisely?

  • How do we meet our obstacles with curiosity and compassion?

Through wisdom teachings, personal stories and evidence-based research, Meeting the Moment with Kindness offers a pragmatic framework for developing mindfulness and befriending the inevitable obstacles on our path.

Sue quote.png

"Too often, we let our precious lives pass by unnoticed. Both during times of crisis and times of calm, our lives are desperately awaiting our attention. Our breath is waiting to be noticed. Our hearts are waiting to be felt. If we don’t pay attention, we continue to wander through our lives half asleep. These are urgent matters. Our lives are precious. Mindfulness helps us slow down." - From Meeting the Moment with Kindness
