Mindfulness and the Edge

Mindfulness is an ever increasing awareness of our inside, our outside, the people and things around us, the planet and beyond. Living at the edge demands that we apply this consciousness to be effective in what we do.

Mindful is a one day event that ran on May 21, 2011, organised by @rosshill and @janstewart.

You can join us now by listening to this audio...
