  3. This week's question asks: How can mindfulness impact the collective? Though mindfulness is a personal practice, it has a ripple effect that extends to our families, our communities, and the world at large. What are some of the ways that mindfulness impacts the collective? Share any examples that come to mind.

  4. It is so interesting you bring up Gaia TV as this seems to be floating around my awareness recently. I may subscribe! Also, if you haven't yet seen it in the teacher training area, Dr. Rick Hanson (who wrote Neurodharma) held two workshops for the program. He dives into some of the neuroscience in these trainings. You can find them in the Workshops area: https://teach.mindfulnessexercises.com/workshops/

  5. As I have grown far more mindful as a listener and more mindful of my verbal responses, deep friendships have grown. The ripple effect is that I have become someone that people can turn to and trust with their deepest feelings. Listening well to each other is beautiful result of mindfulness.

  6. Hi again, I am interested in learning all I can. Mindfulness and higher level consciousness is fascinating. I am immersing myself in this topic. I just ordered the book Bliss Brain, that’s will be my “summer reading”. I’m not a romance novel kind of person. The neuroscience research of mindful meditation is intriguing to me. I used to be a MRI Technologist ( something you didn’t know about me). So, the functional MRI imaging related to meditation is amazing to me!! I also recently found Gaia TV! This is a whole new world.

  9. Wonderful to hear you've joined the teacher training program, Jill! I moderate this community and also support with the teacher training course. The 100-day challenge is a wonderful way to explore different practices and to also include a variety of meditations in your meditation log. If you have any questions about the program or certification process, reach out at any time

  10. What I want from this challenge. I hope to grow in my experience of Mindfulness. I aspire to reach a higher level of consciousness. Grow in self compassion and worldly compassion. As a student in the teacher training program, I will use this challenge as part of my practice log. promt 2 What will be an obstacle to practicing every day. Right now my obstacle is tiredness. When I don’t sleep enough, my brain is off. Having the mediations in my email each morning is a big help.

  13. Absolutely, Erin. Thanks for sharing. I find my mornings change a lot with the seasons, and I also welcome different practices into my mornings dependent upon what feels like it would best serve me that day.

  14. I set my anchor, put my hand on my stomach and take the breath in by the nose and out by the mouth by repeating my anchor words. This helps me a lot while doing my morning and night routines.

  16. Welcome to the community Jhana! And thanks so much for your reflections on a mindful morning. I was actually just speaking to someone yesterday about the beauty of mornings - the silence and solitude before the world has really woken up. Dawn is probably my favourite time of day.

  17. Most mornings I'll do 30 min. of some form of exercise i.e. class, training session. I follow that up with a 10-15 min. walk in nature with my dog. Since I have been increasing my meditation and mindfulness practice over the past two years. I notice the sights, sounds and smells of nature are all around me. It gives me an opportunity to do a meditation walk, or gratitude or love and kindness reflection.That is what the start of a mindful day looks like to me.

  18. I Iove to keep a morning routine that supports me throughout the day. It bring with waking and paying grateful attention to my rested and pain free body, and my easy breathing. Or if needed, I offer myself compassion for pain or restlessness. I attend to the loud demands of my cat before making tea and sitting for 20minutes meditation with my tea. After that I go for a half hour run/walk before turning my attention to breakfast and work or other plans for that day.

  19. I'll start by sharing a few reflections... The primary way that I see mindfulness impacting the collective is through its natural ability to enhance self and world awareness. It is very difficult, if we are committed to deepening self-understanding through mindfulness, to continue acting in hurtful ways. While we all have room to grow, mindfulness helps us to become more responsible for our actions and to behave in ways that are in alignment with the greater good. For instance, mindfulness has helped me to better understand that happiness does not come from mindless consumption. To be more specific, I can recall a time in my life (my early University days) during which I bought a new piece of clothing on an almost weekly basis. I had not yet begun much mindful introspection, and so I still believed that having the right outer appearance would make be feel better inside. As I began to work on the relationship I have with myself, these attachments and shopping patterns naturally began to dissipate (replaced with healthier, more mindful ones), contributing to a better outcome for our planet.
