Mindfulness: Living in the Moment

Mindfulness is a state of awareness and acceptance of one’s thoughts and emotions in a gentle, non-judgmental way. This means intentionally observing one’s thoughts and feelings, without avoidance and aversion, and without labeling the thoughts and feelings as good or bad, right or wrong. Mindfulness is about being in the present moment rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.


Food – Our Common Ground

Food is more important than we think. It fulfils a basic human need for sustenance – rich or poor, young or old – we all need food to survive. Food connects people. Enjoying a meal together with others helps to build and maintain relationships necessary for us to thrive. A universal language, food is a common thread that binds humanity in an increasingly fractured and divided world.
