Jill’s Writing on Medium: Memoir & Mindful Reality

Below you will find articles I have written on Medium. They are broken down into two categories: Memoir and Mindful Reality. Memoir serves to show from where I have come, so that the development of this body of work, Mindful Reality, has a context in humanity, and not just intellectualism. This mindfulness practice has enabled me to manage psychological issues from my past, that I highlight in these stories. The collection of Mindful Reality articles (at the bottom of the page) are reworked posts from my blog on this website. Feel free to browse here when you are so inclined, or follow me on Medium!
