Lean into each moment and let the transformation begin, island mindfulness brings the gift of presence, the convergence of a conscious mind and a free spirit allows us to not be afraid to shout with gladness and dance with joy pouring like a river from our souls on the high roads of life or be vulnerable and show our hearts and our humanity on the low roads, the freedom to be fully present for this unpredictable journey, to deep dive into gratitude and take every opportunity to foster a meaningful connection with humanity — seizing each moment to love each other, be patient, emphatic and kind to each other, lean into each moment because the moment is our majesty; it is all that we are assured; the universe giveth and taketh but if we embrace the moment, the moment will embrace us.

Island Mindfulness: How to Use the Transformational Power of Mindfulness to Create an Abundant Life is the book that I have been waiting to write for the past 15 years. It is the story of how my childhood in Jamaica has influenced every step of my journey. It is a testament to how a loving home, hard work, optimism, a good education and some good fortune can inspire a young girl to stay grounded through many of the struggles of life. As a tribute to Jamaica and the many islands that bring us fun and “Irie” times even when the people that serve you with a smile are fighting their own battles, I coined the term “island mindfulness.” Island Mindfulness is focusing on mindful living and being; it is leaning into each moment, whatever that moment brings, knowing that you are empowered to weather any storms that will come your way and create an abundant life.


Island Mindfulness Mantras are amazing. Island mindfulness is the awareness that each of us is a small but significant voice in the world and that the world needs us to have the peace of mind to live and love harmoniously. We do so by listening to our inner voice and bringing authenticity to all our relationships. Although we may be surrounded by water (literally or figuratively), the mind has the ability to ride the waves of life and find calm in the midst of all the sun, wind, and rain that will touch our lives. By focusing on mindful living and being, the mind, heart, and soul can be Irie (at peace).
