Mindfulness is a flexible, moment-to-moment, non-judging awareness. It can be as simple as awareness of basic daily activities – “Breathing in, I know I am breathing in; breathing out, I know I am breathing out.” Mindfulness is also cultivated through the practice of meditation, in order to experience more calm, joy, concentration and eventually insight.
We only have this moment – unfolding in the here and now, again and again – but so often we miss it, lost in thoughts of the past or future. Thus, we miss our lives. To awaken in the present moment, we come home to ourselves by using the breath as a bridge to unite our body and our mind.

Victor Rivers is an actor, Cuban male advocate, a best-selling author for Domestic Violence prevention who has received the 2011: Men Stopping Violence Award; the 2010- National Network to End Domestic Violence HERO Award. His story evolves at age 12, where Rivers visited his local police department to report a lifetime of crime inflicted upon a child - himself - and upon his mother, siblings, and pets. Though the officers were horrified, they could do little to stop Rivers' father. The torture perpetuated behind closed doors, they said, was "a private family matter." At age 15, after his father kidnapped him and his siblings, transporting them to a different state, Victor ran away, living briefly on the streets before taking then-unprecedented legal action against his father. With a restraining order to protect him, the court allowed Victor to become an unofficial foster child. Through the help of his high school, he went on to live with a series of families - who oversaw his transformation from rage-filled gang member to senior class president. Rivers chronicles his story of survival in his memoir A Private Family Matter. Many of his "angels," as he calls them, were educators - from his eighth grade teacher who literally fed him when his father instituted a starvation diet at home to his high school coaching staff who refused to let him quit the team and drop out of school, ultimately giving him the confidence to earn a full football scholarship at Florida State University and a stint in the NFL. His most famous read, “A Private Family Matter: A Memoir” is a heart-breaking, uplifting story of a family in crisis, how one man rises from the shadow of a violent father to becoming a shining example in transcendence.
