Mindfulness-Based Resolutions for Advocacy

This is an hour lecture, but it was my talk on Mindfulness Based Resolution at this year’s SHCA conference in Jacksonville, Fla. The talk was for hospital patient advocates, but it actually applies to everyone. It is how to deal with life’s day-to-day challenges. http://www.thepao.com/MindfullnessSHCA2011.mp3

    Thank you for allowing me to post here. I enjoyed your “I want to be thankful prayer” in the audio you posted above. I’ve been practicing mindfulness for four years. As you shared with the group, we learn something new every day. I also enjoyed the opening as people were describing what mindfulness meant to them. Keep up your good work. Eric
