  1. Hi Gillian, Thank you for your very helpful advice. Yes the 14-day-course is by Jeremy Lipkowitz; I like the format and how it is presented. I just have to follow the process and do the worksheets. The overlap of worksheets between the two programs added to my confusion/frustration. Regarding what brought me to mindfulness: on a lighter note, I am still looking for the proverbial "silver bullet" My wife and I have always been interested in growing spiritually and emotionally as human beings. We've read lots of books, gone to lots of workshops. Each of us resonated with different materials/modalities. I have been practicing EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) for several years to help with stress, anxiety, and physical pain. I find that it helps, especially during this COVID-19 era. A few years ago I came across Jon Kabat Zinn's mindfulness material, go into it a bit, and found it 'too clinical' for me. I've been looking for simpler meditations of 5-20 minutes and came across this website, I recognize that one of my challenges is that I have high expectations of outcomes and if I don't see/feel results in a few days I'll start looking for something else. The fact that there are tens of thousands of types of meditations and exercises makes it even harder. BUT, going through the last 12 days of the two mindfulness exercises the thought that kept coming up was "listen and watch the videos, the PICK A FEW and do the work!". So I will spend this month re-reading Sean's "Mindfulness Meditation for Beginners" eBook, completing the "Mindful Life Design" questionnaire and getting into the 14 Day program again in more depth. Expectations? "Go with the flow"
  2. Thank you Gene for this post. I'm on Day 12 of the 14 Day program and the 100 days challenge and ... I'm getting a little frustrated because I think that I took on more than I could handle. I like the 14 Day program, I've learned a few things like the "Rising-Falling" breathing technique to help me maintain focus and minimize the mind chatter/questioning. I've printed the worksheets and have filled out some of the them. I plan to pause the 100 day challenge and go through the 14-day worksheets again in more depth. Question: what is the difference between the 14 Day program and the 28 Day program? I appreciate your feedback and thanks again.
  3. Welcome @Frank C,

    I look forward to following your 100 day mindfulness challenge.

    Regards,

    Gene
