Mindfulness practice is known to help calm down nervous system and fight/ flight/ freeze response, and help us make wise choices using your emotional, mind and body wisdom. When you are connected to your inner wisdom and intelligence, your life becomes healthy and grounded, relationships are more intimate and loving, and quality of life becomes richer.
