It’s important to work on improving yourself each and every day yet,
there is no rush, because you have a lifetime to do so.  But don’t wait too long,
or you may very well run out of time.  Think about it this way . . .
if you can say to yourself each day that you are, at least,
“better than yesterday”  then you are making very good progress!

Take time out to . . .

  clear your mind

    relax your body

      calm your emotions

            replenish your soul.


Mindfulness:  is the calm awareness of one’s
body: breathing, heartbeat, sensations,  temperature and muscle tension-relaxation

mind: consciousness, intellect, awareness, imagination, memory and perceptions
soul: one’s essence, emotions, personality, moral principals and inner-spirit

Mindfulness:  is a meditative state of deep and profound stillness and concentration.
It is an abiding in which . . .
the mind becomes fully immersed and absorbed in the object of attention
the mind becomes very still but does not merge with the object of attention, and is thus able to
observe and gain insight into the changing flow of experience around you

Mindfulness can increase awareness by using . .
designated cues, making mindfulness an essentially continuous awareness throughout the day.
This can include something as simple as just taking three successive breaths, keeping in mind that they are
a conscious experience of body activity within the mind.



I started playing the piano at age 4, having innate talents recognized and supported by my mother and, later, in my life-long career as a clinical psychotherapist working in mental health for over 50 years, my passion has become to combine the benefits of music with the skills and techniques I taught and used with the patients I served over the years into a meaningful blending of music and personal empowerment. The conscious recognition and use of this merging can enhance not only the personal strengths of others but also recognize how to make the most out of their daily lives. In addition, demonstrating the immense value of such powerful concepts as positive thinking, gratitude and hope, making this a integral part of their very being, will contribute significantly to personal confidence and self-esteem as well as confidence in what lies ahead in the future.
