Miraval is an internationally renowned, award-winning resort and spa with a reputation as the premiere destination for the practice of mindfulness and creating a life in balance. Mindful Intentions is a very special collaboration between the experts at Miraval and the world's pre-eminent nature cinematographer, Louie Schwartzberg. Whether it's a bird's-eye view of the top of Niagara Falls or an intimate look at a hummingbird's union with a flower blossom, each photograph is more astonishing than the next. The images are all paired with quotations, or Mindful Intentions, from either a Miraval specialist or from Schwartzberg himself. A Mindful Intention is a word, phrase or sentence that is used as a cue to help the mind focus on a singular, purposeful thought. Paired with these particular photos, every Mindful Intention provides a unique opportunity for the reader to take a meditative moment to withdraw from daily stresses and turn inward. Accompanying the book is a breathtaking video, featuring Miraval's Mindful Intentions along with Schwartzberg's cinematography. The video offers yet another dimension to this inspired approach to mindful practice.
