Making a difference by focusing on what is good and true.
Hello, my name is Bob Martin.
I have been a contemplative and meditative arts practitioner for over three decades and am certified as a facilitator/teacher in two schools of meditation.
I am a University Professor of Mindful Leadership and teach courses in The Art and Science of Happiness.
Why am I doing this?
It is my turn to give back. Every morning I get up with one question in the front of my mind: “Have I done enough?”
This work is, I hope, an answer to that question.
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
Knowledge leads to understanding.
Understanding helps us comprehend.
Comprehending allows us to see with fresh eyes.
“When we change the way we look at things...the things we look at change”
– Wayne Dyer

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Rumi
Being happy is not something that "happens to you".
In good measure...it's a decision.
The good news is we can learn to be happy and fulfilled.
