    Happy to be part of the Mindfulness Community. It all started for me when I was introduced to Thich Nhat Hahn and his book Miracle of Mindfulness. No looking back after that.

    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.

    Hi @Ro H. Nice to meet you! Sure I'd love to share! 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!

    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.

    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 the park on warm days is wonderful. I watch my grandson play flag football and marvel at his coordination and his height which surpasses mine. My granddaughter and her girl scout Troop is readying for the annual Scare Crow contest during the pumpkin fest at the arboretum. Her dancing classes yield a more lovely and strong young woman. They are my harvest. As Khalil Gibran says " they live in the house of the future which you can't visit even in your dreams". They will reach it however, and carry me in their hearts with them. My spiritual growth continues. After growing up Christian their is room in my life for the Buddha, his ethics and practices which enhance my understanding of Christianity. Mindfulness helps me recognize that my energy is part of the vast existence of Consciousness which is known in loving presence. I lived a life of helping others. I didn't do things perfectly but I did things mostly well. While my wife and I have a lot to liive for and to experience I feel some increasing readiness for peace and I mean the final peace. When my time is over, I suspect I will welcome whatever happens or doesn't afterward. Daniel

    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 private time to be alone, with my own friends and family just like they do. I would tell them I want the freedom not to be perfect like they do. I would ask them to think of the good things I do and let me have privacy the rest of the time. If that lack of perfection is disappointing to them, I would remind them that no one behaves their best all the time including them and their parents. Daniel A. Detwiler

    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. There is nothing wrong with self improvement. However, continuing to have hatred of others, continuing high reactivity to differences and disrespect for diversity are really not compatible with the direction towards which Budda encouraghed people to move. I would encourage all students of mindfulness and their teachers to investigate the underlying system of ethics and to incorporate them or work on doing so in their daily lives. It is not always easy but always necessary. Daniel A. Detwilertowards

    I am responding to the question: What area do you want to feel more gratitude for? I love bringing my attention to the now especially if I have started to think about old issues. They existed in the nows of the past, they are over unless I cling to them or am actively averse to them. When I remind myself I am in the current now, those processes stop. I am free, safe and at ease. Thich Nhaht Han says "happiness is available" with an impish smile. I take him at his word, repeat the phrase in a new now and feel the joy. Daniel

    Hello I live in Ireland, and I am a Creative Kids Mindfulness Practitioner. I have only just qualified and running my first sessions. I am enjoying them as much as the children. I am also certified in Mindfulness Based CBT. I have practised mindfulness for many years. At the moment I am recovering from bacterial meningitis. I was in a coma for a week and was lucky to survive. I was in hospital for a month. That was four months ago. It was a very traumatic time. I also have fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis, and so I practice mindfulness now more than ever. I have managed to cut down on a lot of pain meds from a large amount, and that is all down to mindfulness. I am now doing a full mindfulness teacher training course. It will take me a while, but I know I will get there. I am a singer, songwriter and a music therapist. I retired from that after being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, but I probably had a much longer career than a lot of people involved in music, so I am very grateful. I'm not very lucky when it comes to health, but I am coping and managing well. I meditate at least 3 times a day and do several informal practices during the day. I am looking forward to being a member here and meeting you all. Blessings Mary

    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

    Good day everyone. I am newly registered as a member of this site. 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 gained through occupational experiences and the multitude of interpersonal relationships gathered as a lifetime composite. I am looking forward to gaining more insights via this MINDFULNESS community and hope to share some entries and material from my Mindfulness Blog and Podcasts in the relatively near future. Carpe Diem.........

    Hello, I am not sure what goes here but will just say I just joined, started my profile and will return. I have to strictly watch my schedule as I can be easily distracted without being mindful of how much time has passed.
