"Dr. Lena Kushnir's Mindfulness series is a powerful and transformative deep dive into how to develop and maintain a personal mindfulness practice. Backed by current science-based research and her impressive academic credentials, the substantial neurologic and emotional benefits of a daily meditation practice can be realized almost immediately. I like to think of each module as curated selections of the best parts of New York Times best selling Mindfulness books condensed into easily understood and actionable practices. This information is made even better through the interaction with Lena each week on how to best apply these practices in our life and how to overcome the hurdles which might otherwise slow us down.”—TJ Tazioli
