FINDING TIME TO FEED OUR SOULS

Finding Time to Feed our Souls

There is a tension within modern Western culture between the hurried, busy state of the realities of modern life and the slow, meaningful pursuit of the experiences and knowledge that add up to a life well lived.

MINDFUL MOMENTS THAT MAKE THE ORDINARY FEEL EXTRAORDINARY

INGREDIENTS LDN making the ordinary feel extraordinary

Global trends and mass production can often serve to undermine the very differences that make each one of our voices unique. Cherishing these differences, on the other hand, seems to carry benefits for us all. We discuss some of the issues of global mass production and ways we can avoid that feeling of sameness that can result from it.

SLOW LIVING IS A MINDFUL REASSESSMENT OF HOW WE DIVIDE OUR TIME

slow living is a mindful reassessment of how we divide our time

Modern life is infused with an unshakable sense that time is speeding up. We live in a hyper-connected world that brings with it an acute awareness of the possibilities that exist, and all these possibilities come with the looming sense that there will never be quite enough time to do all we want to do in life. At its core, slow living is a mindful reassessment of how we divide our time.
