What is compassion?

Compassion starts with the idea that all beings want to be happy and free of suffering.


Unsung Heroes

The Unsung Heroes

The unsung heroes are mothers, especially single mothers, who despite their suffering and workload, provide love and care to their children.


Addiction and shame

Addiction and shame

Toxic shame can lead us to addiction and if we do not treat it, it can pass from generation to generation.

we do not have to look for peace and happiness “out there”, just learn how to get out of own way to connect with what we always have within ourselves.

When you live aware of the context you are naturally drawn to a state of mindful awareness imbued with gratitude.
