The Mindful Thing About Doctor Strange- part 2

Phew. I said a ton in my last post. 1,500 words, wow. Let’s try to make this post a little shorter, shall we? I’ll just cut to the chase, as they do in Hollywood… Remember in the movie when the Ancient One told Stephen Strange that he was a man looking at the world through […]
