Beauty of Being

Playing in the Field of Awareness


In a world where it is easy to busy ourselves with DOING, here's a reminder to pause, to notice the breath and simply BE.

Being aware, being alive, the beauty of being Is an invitation to savor each moment of our life as it unfolds and to treasure everyday experiences.
