Our body is always in the present and available to us as the basis of our mindfulness practice. Experience the calming and grounding effects of body scan, awareness of sensations, and mindful movement.

Compassion is a positive way of responding to our own suffering and that of others. It can enhance our wellbeing, happiness and social connections. Explore the relationship between mindfulness and compassion, and learn simple, effective practices for cultivating it in daily life.
