Thank you Stephen for sharing this wealth of personal approach! Fantastic reading, and your combined friendliness and effectiveness in bringing mindfulness to those who were not at first necessarily interested in being woken up to the moment is just refreshing. But more than that, it is also applicable to the reader, and something to build on and pass along--your work must be already experiencing great ripples that have gone beyond where you can follow the effects. I am so inspired and look forward to reading more of your thoughts/philosophies/works. I am involved with a partner in the creation of a unique tool for mindfulness, and I read your article with great attention because, as I embark upon teaching what it is that we are offering, you stand out as someone who manages to teach without the heaviness of "needing" the student to get it but with all of the joy of giving them the space to get it. For themselves. Please know that you have been very effective for me in this article, and I am so glad I found it. Again, thank you!!
