How 86-Year-Old Rosalee Found Peace Thanks to Mindfulness

"The knowledge of new techniques became an extended lifesaver for me"

What did I learn? Many things ... first and foremost ... that there was a person who had enough trust in risking their financial resources to aid an active 86-year-old woman so that she could continue to grow mentally, spiritually and emotionally. At any age, and particularly during these stressful times, the knowledge of new techniques became an extended lifesaver for me.

As I continue my daily mindfulness practices (even till today!), I am aware of the growing sense of peace within me. I remain eternally grateful for the opportunity to attend the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program. – Rosalee Smith
