Mindfulness at Noon: I Love You [fill in the blank]. Now be Mindful!

Mindful Anger: A Pathway to Emotional Freedom

Oh, love. So beautiful, so inspiring, and so much work. Whether we're talking about a partner or spouse, a parent, a child or a friend, it's amazing how much love you can feel for someone, and at the same time how much work the relationship takes.

B.U.I.L.D. stands for Believe, Understand, Imagine, Learn, Discover or Build Unrealistic Items and Live Destiny or Build Useless Ideas, Later Destroy or maybe something else entirely different. We're kind of loose with what the acronym stands for but what it boils down to is once a month Teens get together at Park Hill and we make something creative together. Sometimes it involves creative writing, sometimes it involves visual art, usually its a mixture of both.
