I have been practicing mindfulness on and off the cushion for about 15 years now. I developed Petitations® (Pet-centered Meditations) about 8 years ago and wrote the book The Petitation Companion with my mother, Joanne Leslie.
Since then I have written five picture books on gratitude, mindfulness, compassion, finding your forever home and yoga featuring my Schipperke, Pippi.
I am working on a series of books for 7-9 year-olds about a fantasy world of insects and a book for -11 year-olds on anxiety, meditation and yoga.
Mindfulness literally saved my life. I do on and off the cushion mindfulness and guided mindfulness with Apps, the Internet, and Petitations® on a daily basis I hope that I can help you you can establish your own practice and that it will be helpful for you.
Thank you for some thought-provoking images.
This is Pago, my Schipperke, who "helped" my mother and me write our book. The grief Petitation® was especially helpful when Pago died.
This is the book that my mother and I wrote in the voice of Pago. It's fun to read and is available on Amazon or on our website www.mindfulpetitations.org.
