  1. Hey John, I will send you a private message. Keep your eye out.
  2. In case you missed it, here are Sean's 5 mindful musings for the week: enhancing non-judgmental moment-to-moment awareness
  3. 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!
  4. 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.

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

  11. Beautiful way to put it! Thank you for sharing Rachel. Your words, as always, are very cherished here. Cherish, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Animals are such a special part of the family. My partner and I have a mom-daughter pair of dogs. They were strays from Greece so we do not know the breed (the mother was found abandoned in a dumpster and soon after had three puppies). Here they are:
  12. Hello Simone! It's wonderful to have you here - and what a beautiful blend of practices you are exploring. Can you say more about feminine embodiment practice? Or do you have any recommended resources to learn more about this?
  13. Beautiful reflections Cherish! I resonate very much with your words. Mother Nature has indeed taught me much, but to offer a different answer to the question, I will add that my two dogs have been remarkable teachers of unconditional love, of play, and of presence. And, of embracing the flow of things. They hold onto nothing, are able to relax deeply, and have infinite amounts of love to give. I am truly blessed by their presence.
  14. Yes, it will indeed be a journey! And I think that it's very natural to be unsure of how it will fit/work. But taking small steps where you can and carving out little pockets of space will eventually lead to something more... and something more after that. It sounds like you have a very clear vision of where you want to support people with mindfulness. I am not an expert on mindfulness in workplace contexts, but maybe someone else here has some input? I will also send through some resources if I come across anything.
