What is Mindfulness?


As you can see in the graphic above, mindfulness is at the center of my approach to health, wellness, and life coaching. It’s because when we truly connect with life in a mindful way we are able to see who we are more clearly – made in the image of our creator. As the psalmist would say “we are fearfully and wonderfully made” (Ps 139:14)!


We have a tendency for us to cruise through life on autopilot. We interact with people while looking at our cell phones. We listen to a podcast while we exercise. We drive while texting (bad idea)! Being mindful of the present moment is the key to understanding who we are. Through the resources of my course you will not only achieve your individualized goals – but also develop a life skill that will help you well into the future.

What is Mindfulness?

Broadly defined, mindfulness is learning how to use our natural mental faculties of attention & intention. We first bring a non-judgmental attention, to our daily life experiences. Then we choose a wise intention, to match any of our life experiences. This deeper understanding of our life, results in more health & happiness. As we practice mindfulness we have less stress & more calmness, clarity and choices.


Mindfulness training is a way of learning to consciously and systematically work with stress, pain, illness, and the challenges and demands of everyday life by not turning away from them but learning how to be resilient with and through them.


Mindfulness is already within the human experience. A deep internal resource of attention, intention and attitude that is available to us. Mindfulness is patiently waiting to be used in the service of learning, growing and healing.

“Mindfulness is moment to moment, non-judgmental awareness.”  -Jon Kabat Zinn , Ph.D. (1990)


Mindfulness is not:


Mindfulness is not something that one gets or acquires. It is already within the human experience. A deep internal resource of attention, intention and attitude. That is available to us and is patiently waiting to be observed and used in the service of learning, growing, and healing.


The 5 basic Mindful practices are:

  • Mindful SOS – spending 5 minutes reflecting on breathing when feeling stressed

  • The Body Scan- mindful attention while lying down

  • Mindful Walking- mindful attention in daily life and activities

  • Mindful Sitting Meditation- mindful attention while sitting still

  • Mindful Eating- mindful attention while eating


It is indeed a radical act of love just to sit down and be quiet for a time by yourself.  It is only love that can give us insight into what is real and what is important.  And so a radical act of love makes sense- love for life and for the emergence of one’s truest self. -Jon Kabat-Zinn

I have researched the scientific literature and know that my clients need easy access to quality CBD products. I see how this natural product can change people’s lives and decrease the impact of debilitating disease, help prevent cancer and help with its treatment, decrease dementia and seizures, control addictive disorders and diabetes, help reduce weight, and effectively decrease anxiety and depression.


I encourage my patients and clients to explore the benefits of CBD. There is no incentive for drug companies to advertise these products since there is no ‘mark-up’ big Pharma can attach to cannabinoids. The fact is, CBD is helping people naturally. My hope is that you not only experience the healing powers of cannabinoids but that you will join me on my mission to tell more people about it.  


What is CBD?


Cannabidiol is one of more than 80 beneficial components in cannabis. It has no THC and therefore it is not psychotropic and does NOT make you high. It is legal in all 50 states. It has proven to be a healthy alternative to medications for many conditions. It is considered a supplement and therefore cannot be advertised as a “treatment”.


Conditions that CBD may help


The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and many other researchers have found CBD has the following beneficial properties:


  • Antioxidant: combats oxidative stress.

  • Anti-inflammatory: decreases inflammation.

  • Anti-tumoral, Anti-cancer: combats tumor, cancer cell growth.

  • Anxiolytic, Antidepressant: combats anxiety and depression, and PTSD.

  • Antiemetic: reduces nausea and vomiting.

  • Anticonvulsant: suppresses seizure activity.

  • Antipsychotic: combats psychosis.

  • Anti-addictive: helps people decrease use of tobacco, alcohol, and narcotic pain medication

  • Neuroprotective: protects the brain and combats damage leading to dementia, Parkinson's disease and other neurologic conditions.

  • Diabetes/Weight Loss: suppresses appetite, changing white fat to ‘brown’ (metabolically active) fat, and decreasing insulin resistance.


Health Coaching is Entirely FREE using CBD from My Suppliers


If you sign up to use CBD products with either of my companies I will provide you with Health Coaching at a 50% reduction in cost. This is because I am convinced that CBD will increase your responsiveness to coaching.

Ordering CBD

However, you don't have to be registered with me to try our CBD Product. Just go to the website noted below. In addition, if you would like to join my team to spread the news about CBD just go to the bottom of the page and click on "Join My Team". I can advise you in the correct usage of this supplement.

One question everyone has is "how much is enough?". The fact is that we all produce our own cannabinoids. The CBD Oil allows your own chemical to enter your cells. Therefore, everyone is different! Our philosophy is to start low and go slow! Start with one or two drops a couple of times a day and see how you feel. I often encourage my patients to start with the 500mg sublingual drops. Progressively increase until you have the desired effect - we call this titrating your dose. Please contact me with questions.

I actually have two companies that I work with which have different kinds of products. This gives me, and my patients, flexibility in dosing.


One Medication Interaction Caveat!

If you are taking any medication that has a warning about 'grapefruit juice' you need to know that CBD products have a similar warning! Either check with me or you primary care provider to make sure it's safe for you to use CBD products.


Why Use?

Whenever you use online products you need to be cautious. A recent study in November 2017 noted that 70% of online CBD products are mislabeled by unscrupulous sellers! Always ensure that there is third party confirmation of what CBD product you are actually getting. This is what CBD from my distributors provides!
