  6. Yes, and pretty much every page is flagged! Some excerpts: “The radical approach of bodhichitta practice is to pay attention to what we do. Without judging it we train in kindly acknowledging whatever is going on. Eventually we might decide to stop hurting ourselves in the same old way.” ”Dissolving our assumptions and beliefs-is the best use of our human lives.” ”Egolessness is a flexible identity. It manifests as inquisitiveness, as adaptability, as humor, as playfulness. It is our capacity to relax with not knowing, not figuring everything out, and with not being at all sure about

  7. @David, I really like the images and symbols this represents. It says to me that we are all in this world together. We are all connected in a global community. We are all called to be stewards of the earth. We are all called to take care of and care for each other. God and creation is life experienced in reciprocity. Thanks for sharing.

  8. This photo is very still. The water is so calm. It almost looks like a fog on it. Empty with no people in it and no waves. Almost too quiet.

  10. Thank you Ro. Softness has an instant calming effect on me as well. My clients often voice that to me as well about themselves. Thank so much you for your comment.

  12. RAIN can be quite profound, especially if we feel we are in a slump, especially in these Covid times...sometimes, the "I" may feel quite preculiar. I caught myself listening to Katherine May's "How Wintering Replenishes" Podcast...and inquiring, what does that feel like to me? I need to complete listening to that...she is diagnosd with Adult Autism...how can that be I thought...she has a College degree! It's almost like a form of Cognitive dissonance...to be explored more as I continue her Podcast.:)

  28. This is a walking trail in my neighbourhood. It is a 1-kilometer path which weaves through a forested area. In the summer, I really enjoy walking on this path because it helps me to be mindful in nature. When I am walking along the path, I am aware of the trees, the wind, the air, the animals, and my breath. It also reminds me that the magic of life is in the moment.

  33. I use the enneagram with my coaching clients. If they have a coaching package, it is part of the cost. I have the take the assessment to give me some insight into areas that they might want to explore and also to give them some insight into themselves as well.

    • Hey John, I will send you a private message. Keep your eye out.
    • Hello all,  I hope this finds each of you doing well under difficult times --- even though for many, things seem to be getting a little bit better.  I am in the early stages of establishing a mindfulness meditation business  providing services, workshops and trainings to individuals, organizations and businesses.  My website is "under construction" and I've started a social media presence.   As I start down this road, I find myself questioning and doubting my decision to do this, and also doubting the steps that I've currently taken so far.  In thinking through this, as a new small business entrepreneur I have realized that what I am missing is a business mentor.  I can't pay anything, but would love to talk through options, steps, business structure, etc with anyone who's been down this road already!  If there's anyone out there interested in this, please let me know.  My business is http://blueskymindfulness.works and email is blueskymindfulnessinfo@gmail.com.  Although I haven't posted much within this forum, it's been incredibly valuable to me.  Thank you Gillian and to everyone who's a part of this community!  In gratitude,  Jane    
    • I'd like to know where I can download # 5 - Breath Focus A FINAL. I've been getting bonus meditations on the 100 day meditation challenge. I'm up to 109 which I believe is number 9 in the 30 day fitmind program. I didn't receive the 105 bonus meditation email so I haven't been able to download it. I have found it on the site so I am able to listen to it, but I would enjoy downloading it as I have with all the meditations so far. Any help would be appreciated.

    • In case you missed it, here are Sean's 5 mindful musings for the week: enhancing non-judgmental moment-to-moment awareness Hi All!  Here is your weekly dose of "5 Mindful Musings", a brief list of what's helping me live a more mindful life. What I'm Offering Guided Meditation For Creating Mental Space. This guided audio meditation is designed to increase calm, clarity and spaciousness in the mind. We've received a lot of great feedback about it. I hope you like it!   What I Am Experimenting With The Four Buddhist Mantras for Turning Fear Into Love. "We have a great, habitual fear inside ourselves. We’re afraid of many things — of our own death, of losing our loved ones, of change, of being alone. The practice of mindfulness helps us to touch nonfear. It’s only here and now that we can experience total relief, total happiness… In the practice of Buddhism, we see that all mental formations — including compassion, love, fear, sorrow, and despair — are organic in nature. We don’t need to be afraid of any of them, because transformation is always possible." - Thich Nhat Hanh Mindfulness Exercises We Just Shared Freely   How to Teach Mindfulness With Less Fear, Doubt, and Uncertainty If mindfulness has changed your life, it is natural to want to share it with others. Some people will share mindfulness informally with their loved ones. Others, however, will feel a deeper call to share mindfulness in a more formal way by becoming a mindfulness meditation teacher.   What I Am Happy To Support Rise Up Against Racism. This non-profit enriches children’s minds with stories from diverse voices and provides communities with a collection of antiracist books. Please consider learning more about them, donating to their cause, or starting your own RUAR project in your own neighborhood.      A Quote That I Love "The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience." ― Frank Herbert       Share your thoughts, questions and support in our online Mindfulness Community.  Subscribe to our YouTube channel for free mindfulness trainings.

    • What a wonderful technique. It is a good reminder to celebrate our small moments of noticing when we've become lost in negative, critical thoughts. Thanks for sharing Daniel!
    • Hello Gareth! Thank you for the lovely introduction - and for your input on the question re: schizophrenia. It seems like you have a wealth of experience and knowledge. I'm Gillian - part of the support team for Sean's teacher training program and the community moderator of this forum. If you have any question, feel free to ask. In the meantime, if you'd like to share any thoughts or reflections elsewhere in the forum, it would be great to hear more about your expertise. Wishing you a peaceful Thursday! Gillian
    • Thanks to you both for your input! @Cookie, is this helpful for you?
    • Hi both, An interesting question. I've worked with Paranoid Schizophrenics in a Forensic Mental Health Care Home setting here in the UK. I was allowed to offer them Mindfulness, but NOT Hypnotherapy / Self Hypnosis... I could have applied for permission to work with hypnosis with these individuals as long as they weren't in a florid state. But I didn't get around to that as felt the Mindfulness would be enough for now. I don't know where you are in the World or what the regulations are there, but here are some interesting readings: https://thepsychologist.bps.org.uk/volume-25/edition-12/new-voices-should-we-be-more-mindful-psychosis https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6436583/#:~:text=Mindfulness meditation alleviates symptoms of,5 and reduced negative symptoms. https://www.heretohelp.bc.ca/visions/mindfulness-vol12/is-mindfulness-useful-or-dangerous-for-individuals-with-psychosis Many others here: https://www.google.com/search?q=mindfulness+for+paranoid+schizophrenia&rlz=1C5CHFA_enGB744GB744&oq=mindfulness+for+paranoid+sc&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j33i22i29i30l2.7544j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 My rule of thumb has always been to check with the person prescribing the anti psychotics (and make sure there is a paper trail). The results to date have varied from indifferent (with permission) to enthusiastic. With the greatest respect, I would add that I would NOT advise this to people who have no psych-brain training other than Mindfulness. Hope this helps, Gareth www.alchemylifetherapy.com 
    • Hello! Please allow me to introduce myself as a Consultant Medical Hypnotherapist, Solution Focused Psychotherapist and Mindfulness Teacher. Oh and by the way, I still write as a journalist and make broadcast and online content as I spent 30 years in multimedia journalism and communications. I've been thoroughly enjoying Sean's Mindfulness scripts. I get just as much out of them as my students and customer-patients do! I've just purchased the 300+ Mindfulness Exercises and I look forward to integrating them into my practice and teaching. I'd love to hear from anyone who has used these with classes. Peace and power to you all! G*
