The energy that derives from mindful action is
creative. Everything it touches will be renewed.
It flows in when you do something that arouses
your interest and provides you with the same
exultation as when a child flies a kite on a windy
spring day.

Mindfulness is the ore of life that waits to be
polished and shaped by you. It is not distinct
from anything else in your life. Mindfulness is
not divided up into moments, levels, quantities
or shortcomings. Mindfulness is your attitude
towards life.

The path to joy is not to dream of a life
but to live out a dream


Arctic Queen is one of Scandinavia`s strongest
inspirators and leading writers within
the field of communication and mindfulness.
