What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is interrupting our busy lives once every day to focus our attention on the people around us.

Why practice mindfulness?

Our goal is to increase our capacity for compassion, become more fully aware of our thoughts and emotions, and help us feel connected to our neighbors. Mindfulness cultivates empathy. We invite you to awaken active love for a new neighbor every day this month.


Our Daily Mindfulness Exercise


I Open my eyes,

Tune my ears,

Inspire my voice,

Extend my hands,

Expand my heart,

Move my feet,

and Open my mind

To love my

Mentally ill neighbors

as myself
