Explore how to train in mindfulness together with concentration, attention, and presence of mind. As we develop these mental skills, they’ll become powerful tools for transforming our minds and lives. By using the mindfulness toolkit to develop and sustain pure intentions and a good heart, we will eventually eradicate all our negativity and enjoy a happy, relaxed mind all the time.
