Is TSD mindfulness different than other mindfulness practices?

TSD mindfulness includes traditional mindfulness practices, such as single pointed focus and open awareness. Other practices taught are noting thinking, radical acceptance, self-compassion and techniques for soothing your nervous system. It is our belief that when our minds are distracted and our nervous systems are triggered it is difficult to move our consciousness into our hearts. With this practice, you will learn how to Tame your mind and Soothe your gut ,so you can Dwell in your heart. Feel free to read our Google Reviews.
