6: When Sh!t Hits the Fan: From Reaction to Response

Often times we find ourselves in a situation or in front of someone reacting in disproportion to what is.

When we are faced with conflict can we begin to practice Mindfulness: adding pause, taking a deep breath and adding a layer of observation. 

Responding with purpose and intent takes practice and being calm and balanced is a process. But with commitment and compassion our reactive tendencies will begin to fade. Like Viktor E.
