The Art of Mindful Living
Thich Nhat Hanh has been a pioneer bringing mindfulness in the West since the early 1970s, developing new ways to apply ancient wisdom to the challenges of modern life.
Mindfulness is a kind of energy that we generate when we bring our mind back to our body and get in touch with what is going on in the present moment, within us and around us. We become aware of our breathing and come home to our body, fully present for ourselves and whatever we are doing.
The energy of mindfulness helps us touch life deeply throughout the day, whether we’re brushing our teeth, washing the dishes, walking to work, eating a meal, or driving the car. We can be mindful while standing, walking or lying down; while speaking, listening, working, playing and cooking.
Mindfulness is not hard work. It’s very pleasant and relaxing, and we don’t need extra time to do it. There’s an art to finding creative ways to generate the energy of mindfulness, peace, and happiness in everyday life. Thich Nhat Hanh left the Earth realm in 2019.

What followed was an absolute and complete transformation of the mind, body and soul - Justin Caffrey 2.0.

Breathwork & Mindfulness
Creator of Breathwork Academy and the explorer of human equanimity, Artur Paulins is working internationally to transform our access to daily calm through breathwork. “An access to equanimity (calm, stillness, contentment) should be available to everyone.”
In his early years, he became one of the first instructors trained directly by Wim Hof. This was Artur’s first training in breath mastery, which now spans a variety of breath-based approaches to wellbeing, resilience and inner-strength. He’s tested each method rigorously and adopted a unique approach that is accessible for all across a range of formats.
