  1. I just finished the 30 day FitMind program which started at the end of 100 days of Mindfulness. I really want to thank Sean for including this program. I was ready for it and benefitted immensely. Having been a therapist, self awareness has been part of my life's work. With prior experience in that arena, experience in guided meditation, past work on relaxation and stress reduction, this program worked for me after the 100 days of preparation. I re-discovered and am re-discovering past succeses that had slipped out of my awareness. It feels good to have them back! Daniel

  5. Hello, I'm Alexandra and I am new to this group. I recently received my certification to teach Mindful Meditations. I have taught one intro workshop and this coming week I will lead a Mindful Self Compassion Meditation. This is stepping outside of my comfort zone and I am somewhat of an introvert. Hope to learn from this group of likeminded people.

Some of the activities I had as part of my challenge were: 1 minute equal breathing practice Mindful Listening Gratitude Journal Doing 1 activity without multitasking I designed it so that it would promote greater awareness, presence and increased self-compassion. Hope that helps!

  11. Hi Gillian, If I could bother you this one last time. Today I received the day 130 email, the last day in the fitmind program. After going over all the meditations from day 1 - 130, I realized I never received the day 126 or day 26 in fitmind. I checked my past emails and seen that I went from day 125 to day 127. Day 126 is the Yoga Nidra Final Meditation. There's no rush. Whenever you can find the time, I'd love if you could send me the day 126 email. My email is jdmk@shaw.ca. Thank You, John MacKinnon

  12. Good morning everyone. I've just found this page after searching for guided meditations by Joseph Goldstein. I've been meditating every morning for several years using Headspace as a recommendation from my therapist, and branching out to Insight Meditation, and others. In the process, I've found some teachers I really like, so I find myself each morning searching out one of them.

  15. Hi Rick, Yes happy to have a conversation although I am not really sure I can help. I work for a charity and they fund the programme that I talked about, so the incentive is there. As a community nurse myself by background, as well as an educator I have always found that releasing community staff for educational activity appears easier than hospital staff. However in Scotland I do think that the well-being of all healthcare staff is being seen as crucial because of the pandemic and I am hoping that this will increase interest/support for such programme. Thanks for the welcome too!

  17. Hi Gillian and forum members, I did pause and reflect more on Adveita Vedanta and Swami S. Just recently I watched a few more of his youtube videos. There is no doubt about it, I like everything about this good Monk. He has a beautiful heart, a masterful intellect and a good sense of humor. That is not going to change. However, as I listened more I did learn that Swami S. and those in his branch of Adveita Vedanta believe in reincarnation. I uphold their right to that belief but it just doesn't work for me. Also, despite all of his presentations, the question i always have remains unanswered:

  21. Hi Gillian, I had posted on the I AM thread that I was intrigued by Advaita Vedanta and the Swami I watched on youtube. That is still true. However, I found a new Swami by the name of Sarvapriyananda who is more in depth. His series is called "The Ultimate Truth". For some reason, the "get their quickly" approach of Rupert Spira comes in second behind these Indian Swami presentations. They don't care that you understand quickly. This Swami also has great respect for all religions and can discuss their aims with respect. That really appeals to me. While Rupert Spira is headed towards the same

  24. Hi Gillian, During an interview of Rupert Spira, Depak Chopra mentioned the Advaita Vedenta on which Rupert's work is based. I found a 6 part series on you tube explaining those concepts. After the first one, I could understand the basic concept that Rupert is using and the mode of teaching he uses. The Swami, an older American man, said that the self inquiry is the method of learning recommended by the ":Rishies" either the people who wrote these ideas or the writtem ideas themselves, who or which developed these ideas. The Swami is a plain spoken man and I found it fairly easy to follow him

  25. If there was just one thing I could say to someone I loved today it would be "I'm listening". Really listening means I am open to my loved one and willing to understand. It means I can stop talking and let my love one be and feel heard. Itis relationship nourishing.

  26. The question I am responding to is what season describes me and my life. At age 73 I wo uld say Autumn. That season is often warm, sunny and filled with blue skies. The leaves which turn color here in Illinois are always beautiful. They have an earthy smell when piled up and a nice curnch when you walk on them. Later, the month grows colder. There are days which darken sooner and things turn colder towards winter. Indoor activities heighten with warm good, cider and mulled wine shared with friends. My life is in the stage of Autumn. I have plenty of good and warm relationships. Walking in th

  27. If I were a role model for millions of children I would not change my behavior. I would let children know that I live a real life. For the most part I am happy but I feel all the feelings which most other people have. I would let them know that I am not perfect and don't expect myself to be. I would encourage them to understand that just like they all behave well towards others most of the time but not all of the time, I live that same way. I would also let the children know that I do not like to live my whole life as if a camera is following me just like they wouldn't. I would say I need priv

  28. Hi Gillian, I would like to comment on the importance of a system of ethics behind mindfulness meditation. In the West we teach mindfulness meditation as a system on its' own. However, it comes from Buddha and his system of ethics. Those ethics include compassion for self and all other beings, loving kindness self and others and equanimity , being nonreactive to name just a few. Unfortunately, if those who study mindfulness don't see it as part of a transformational set of ethics which predispose them to building a better and more accepting world it might just be a self improvement technique.

  37. Hello All I highly recommend this book- true story of an attorney who represents minorities given the death sentence (often innocent people and/or juveniles, as well as fighting for changes in incarceration and helping inmates transfer to life on the outside. There's much more I wont get into. I learned a lot about prison and how The author, Bryan Stevenson, says "the racial terrorism of lynching in many ways created the modern death penalty." That''s one line of many I highlighted. Apparently it is also a movie. sn't sure where to post this, but wanted to recommend an excellent bok

Genuinely looking forward to connection and communication with others as we navigate the avenues and convoluted pathways of life . In my travels and extensive life experiences now beyond 6 decades I marvel at the complexities and creativity of the Universe. Each exciting opportunity and challenge has been but a brief interruption along this finite journey. Not to be approached as insurmountable or impossible to breach. I reminisce casually through the catalog of my mind upon the diversity of knowledge and hopefully wisdom ga

      I feel present, calm and grounded when I'm focusing my breath and also some thoughts just run out here and there but I'm ok with that just let it be and I can feel my eyes are very tired that I don't even really care about it. I think I will have a good sleep tonight. 
    • Hi everyone,  I am Thuraya. A Palestinian educator who has been looking for different ways to practice mindfulness and help myself know how to let go. I am using this platform to get more into practical performance of mindfulness and the correct implementation of its techniques 
    • Hi everyone, I'm so glad to be here participating! A few months ago I finished a midfulness training. Time goes by very fast and there is always a lot to do in my job; but I want to continue cultivating mindfulness and teaching it;  for me, it´s  a challenge to be able to communicate in English(another reason to be here).  When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut 🙂 and also a truck driver. Later, as a teenager, I wanted to be an engineer. And after the experiences life has given me, now I want to go slowly and slowly. I loved music, and I had a CD of music of Buddhist monks, I liked to listen to them, it relaxed me, I didn't know I was going to meditate 🙂 .   Greetings to all!  
    • Hi Wahby17,  Welcome! What a Story to behold; one never knows what Comic Figures can be powers of example, especially ones who Meditate!
    • Hi, I'm a university student who has been meditating his entire life for multiple reasons. It might sound stupid but as a child I loved reading comics, and one of my favorite characters was Iron Fist. Basically he meditated a lot, so out of habit I did too in an attempt to imitate him, and bit by bit I got more and more interested as I saw results both mental and physical. I researched more and more and became more aware of myself. I'm glad I can now join communities with people who can share their different experiences on this topic.

    • Houseplants have been inspiring me lately. I really like to take care of them and watch how the plants grow and bloom. To make the plants feel better in winter, I ordered 4 Honesorn 600W grow lights. Found them right here https://homemakerguide.com/led-grow-lights/. I have a lot of flowers and while the sunny day was very short, atmospheric light reigned in my house.
    • Man in general is a tenacious being and capable of adapting to any conditions and surviving many difficulties. Someone's trials break, but many, on the contrary, become stronger. The main thing is to draw the right conclusions from all your troubles.
    • It's great that you felt this feeling of oneness with your own body. This is difficult to achieve these days, because we live in a stream of things, in a stream of stress and change. With such dynamics, it is very difficult to devote time to self-discovery.
