Ora - Issue 03 – Mindfulness

In Issue 03 we explore the concept ‘Mindfulness’.

“The process of bringing one’s focus to experiences occurring at the present moment.”

In this issue, we talk with Brittany McNabb – Meditation Teacher and founder of Brthe Studio – about the science behind meditation and how we can all benefit from incorporating mindfulness in our daily practice.

Other highlights include features from Bridget McNamara – Psychologist and founder of Spirit Wellbeing – about the key struggles faced by our young generation, and included insight from student-led mental wellbeing organisation Silverline Otago about what we can do about it.

We also talk with Sara Widdowson, Dietitian and founder of Your Monthly, to discuss the basics of female health, the role our hormones play and why they are so important; Leo Murray, founder of Why Waste, to learn more about permaculture and how Why Waste is leading the way in waste management solutions; and Amelie Schoen, coordinator of the food rescue charity Kiwi Harvest, about why growth within the company can offer mixed emotions and how big the issue of food waste has become.

Inspired by the beauty of the morning sunrise and cool sensations of a dawn surf, this issue features photography by Jordan Reid, as well as a special feature from photographer Emma Orchard, capturing the beauty of a recent camping adventure of the lower South Island.

At 120-pages, this issue is sure to inspire, enlighten and bring pure joy this Spring.
