Lenny Girly, 57 from Ohio, has praised mindfulness training in an interview with Psychopaths Monthly. He has said that it helped him “live in the now” and “not worry about my fears”.
Girly, who was sentenced to 27 life sentences last month, took up the training 6 years ago to cure his social anxiety and fear of blood. Both, he has said, no longer haunt him.
Mindfulness training is a discipline taught to help people not worry about the things that hold them back and to be present at all times. Rajesh Pritivacant, founder of “No Fear, Stay Here” the group Girly attended, commented on the interview saying “he was a mess when I first met him, just a guy who kept himself to himself. But the training helped him out of his shell and he began to socialise more.. In all honesty, I cured him of what ailed him and who can say they’ve achieved that? Apart from medical professionals”
