"In this model, mindfulness is defined as a moment-by-moment observing of impermanence, suffering, and not-self. In other words, mindfulness involves noticing the impermanence of sensations and feeling tones, the suffering caused by habitual desire or aversion, and the idea that none of the sensations, desires, or aversions create the self.

Instincts are not some weird mystical power that are only found in the animal kingdom.
Gut instincts are degind as: an innate, typically fixed pattern of behaviour in animals in response to certain stimuli.
We are born with instincts to help us survive. As much as we may pretend we are not, we are very much animals; why do we try to deny this?

Compassion, or indeed heartfulness, was communicated most powerfully through being in their presence.
The in's and out's of meditation — what it is, why it's used, and the many benefits you can get from practicing it.
The word meditation can immediately conjure images of Buddhist monks in saffron robes or new-age beatniks in clouds of incense — which isn’t necessarily untrue. But meditation isn’t about religion per se, or even spirituality, really.
The other day, a colleague invited me to teach a session in a leadership development program he was running for 30 senior executives from one of our client organizations. He launched the session with a provocative question: Who are three people you...
One of the never-ending responsibilities of a leader is to remind people what we’re trying to accomplish and why it matters. This is the essence of vision casting. Unfortunately, most leaders under communicate their preferred picture of the future.
