“Picture a pattern of upright dominoes that have been positioned just far enough away from one other to highlight the gap between them, but just close enough to hit each other if one of them tips over.

When we’re not able to access our mindfulness, reactivity takes over.”
Alicia Muñoz, psychotherapist and author, from Mindful Loving
