What is a Mindful Living® commUNITY? Why are mindful practices important and what exactly are they? It begins with people interested in being part of a mindful commUNITY (the core is unity). Dr Kathleen Hall explains that without a commUNITY (a tribe) an idea like “mindful living” would not survive in just one single person. It requires a family to be part of the movement to practice mindful living ideas.
