Living Mindfully with an Aging Body
From Jeff Layne
Steve Flowers tells his audience of mostly older adults, “It’s never too late to be the person you’ve wanted to be; you’re never too old.” He urges everyone to ask the question, “What do I want to do with my wild and precious life?” Flowers advocates awareness of what catches our attention, what we are doing with our minds. Be it watching TV, reading, browsing the internet – these activities become our mind’s “diet.” He urges people to intentionally focus on what they want to grow, to “water the seeds of happiness.” Flowers is founder and director of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Clinic at Enloe Medical Center in Chico. Has taught MBSR since 1997.
