Hello Friends,

Welcome to the MLO 101: Life Optimization by Meditation & Mindful Living. If you are looking to improve your mental and emotional well-being and become more integrated with life and connected to the environment you are in the right place.

The difference between this Mindfulness course and others is that we look at our life from three different domains. (Natural Systems and how they influence us, mental and emotional, and environmental wellness)

It’s not just about using Mindfulness to reduce stress, but how to live a more holistic stress-free life. That requires us to learn fundamental skills in awareness of our minds/perspectives, bodies, and emotions, to grow in emotional maturity, and to improve our communication and other habits.

This class discusses the four foundations of mindfulness to assist in your personal, professional, and relational development with our Mindful Life Optimization roadmap and follow-up courses to learn the pathway to effectiveness and lasting happiness.
