This Korean Buddhist monk reads simply making a great impression on mindfulness and the art of slowing down your life so you have a chance to experience it. I used to say “I’m running as fast as I can “. Slowing down to just experience the life we live now is much more meaningful.

CP is a condition that takes courage to live with normals in public on equal terms. Slugger gave this courage to his handler to do just that. With the service dog she could feel safe with others, work, marry and live untethered to home or an institution. A dog doesn’t judge. The unconditional love of Slugger gave the author the ability to feel complete

Demonstration of the relationships between man and dog. I have a retired service dog so have experienced a connection with her intimately for 10 years. The middle years of her life as my active service dog are impossible to describe how she knew before I did that I needed help desperately. No human in my family had any idea that I was in trouble often abandoning me in anger and disbelief. I truly believe that she could feel my need through a very bad period where she was who was my lifeline. The author describes this ability of a good dog if we just listen. My new dog is going through the same amazing learning process now.

‘s Mindfulness Stress Reduction Program is the one thing that has helped me cope with my chronic pain, isolation medical abandonment as it is clear my conditions will never abate. Jon Kabat-Zinn says it best “as long as you’re breathing you are alive. The Full Catastrophe happens but his teachings tell me this is a time to grow in life learning acceptance through the practice of living life in the moment to the fullest. I can accept myself in unbearable pain now with his meditations; ie. the body scan, loving kindness, lifescape, etc. I don’t run from what is destroying my body but have learned to embrace everything occurring in a powerful way living awake in the words he teaches. There’s no mantra. No distraction from whatever you are living with. Kabat-Zinn teaches an amazing coping skill for all aspects of life. Accepting the way things are.

Believe Pema, she has the best answer to finding peace with your emotions daily.
