Mindful journaling can be a powerful tool for growth, especially for those times when meditation doesn't feel like an accessible practice. It builds not only awareness, but also self-compassion. In my own practice, I value my journaling space just as much as my time spent in meditation.

Research on hunter-gatherer people suggest that they are more 'whole-brained', or I might say 'whole-bodied'.

So what might happen if we were more connected to our right brain/body?
Mindfulness is everywhere right now, isn't it? And I do worry that it could be turning into yet another thing that people feel they have to achieve.
