My name is Orit Tabachnik. After my younger daughter left for college and my book was published, it was time to explore what I wanted to do next. I was introduced to quilting and immediately was hooked. For a moment, I thought that would be my focus, but what about my prior education in Nonviolent Communication and what about yoga? I studied and practiced it for so many years. I decided to take it to the next level and become a yoga teacher. Then I realized there is so much more that I want to offer, what about journaling, and spending time in nature, and…and…? A long conversation with my mentor, Victoria, made it clear that all the practices I have been doing for years fall under the category of mindfulness.

“What Is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens.”
“Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future. -Greater Good Magazine
Over the years I have experimented with many different mindfulness practices. I am convinced that one method is not better than another, and at different times different practices could suit us best. You don’t have to be a yogi or yogini to incorporate mindfulness into your life. In fact, you can tailor mindfulness practices to fit your busy schedule. A short practice can go a long way to quiet the mind, restore calm, and bring about a sense of well-being.
I am here to show you how.
