When did you first start practicing mindfulness and why were you motivated to do so?
I have been an angry person for as long as I can remember—grumpy and angry. I would go days without noticing my own body, often undernourished and in physical pain. Being in nature has always been an important experience for me—a disproportionate number of my peaceful moments have occurred there. Reading and listening to the works of Pema Chodron allowed me to realize that I could have that feeling all the time!
