Mindful October 2022: The Peaceful Mind Issue
Mindful Magazine’s October issue illuminates the balance that can be found when we breathe and befriend. The Peaceful Mind issue invites us to explore the transformational art of turning toward difficult emotions.
We can’t hold back the difficult circumstances we may encounter in our lives. We can’t outrun our complicated feelings. But we can meet the substance of our lives with openness and curiosity. And when we do, we might be surprised by the ease and freedom we find. This is the intersection of mindfulness and difficult emotions. This issue explores that intersection of mindfulness and difficult emotions, and invites you to notice the space that’s always there for you.
