    schema:description "A house is merely physical but a home is far more subtle and elusive. The Mindful Home takes the view that being 'at home' is a metaphor for finding ourselves - finding our core. What do we find at our core? Well, if the world's great wisdom traditions have anything to say about it then home is about qualities that we could equate with 'good' itself - true happiness, peace, beauty, wisdom and inspiration. It is also about the good things in life such as harmony, relationships, health and wealth. So, how are we to find our core and create a home that reminds us of the qualities associated with it? That is where the practice of mindfulness comes in! By exploring the ways in which we feed our mind and our heart through our senses, how we use space, the practicalities of managing a home, and how we can live a healthful and sustainable life at home, The Mindful Home will enable us to shape the living space we really want, creating an environment that both nurtures and invigorates us, while meeting our needs."@en ;
