  1. Thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in the 100 day Challenge! It has been quite a journey and I have learnt so much from it. I especially liked the meditations for Concentration, Open Awareness, Breath and Integrated Body Scans. My favourites were those guided by Sean Fargo, (thank you!) but Tara Brach is also good. The Worksheets available for download also have so much useful information about the subject and will be a valuable reference going forward. I looked forward to my daily morning meditations and talks and feel I am now able to think more clearly and am able to cope and accept a bit better with how things are in the world, instead of being consumed by worry and anxiety about things I can't change. So where to from here? I have discovered an online course at one of Australia's universities called "Maintaining a Mindful Life", which I have already started. The 100 Day Challenge has given me the groundwork for this, so thanks again. All the best to you all. Rhonda
  2. Hi Gillian Thanks for your reply. I'm currently on Day 18 of your 100 day Mindfulness Challenge and enjoy doing the daily meditations. I really look forward to them as they start off my day perfectly. I was introduced to mindfulness by my Private Health Fund in Australia, to a web and app-based meditation program developed by psychologists and educators called Smiling Mind. I learnt so much from that and wanted to do more and I found your website. So far so good, but I know I need to keep motivated and committed and to keep learning as I don't want to get back to my old habit of not being able to control my runaway thoughts and emotions. I have learned these meditations help me to appreciate the present moment more and that it's no point worrying about the future or getting stuck in the past. You have a great day. Regards Rhonda
  3. Hello forum members. I am new to forums but joining this one seems a good idea as I am very interested in the concept of mindfulness to help settle my emotions, stress and anxiety. I have been doing a meditation once per day for about the last 6 weeks and already am noticing a bit of difference with clearer thinking and I also seem to be a bit more relaxed. I am a definite believer in the positive effect of meditation and plan to persevere and incorporate this into my life. I am retired, love nature and animals and enjoy learning about the universe and all things science and space.
  4. Thank you Sean for the e-book “Finding the Missing Peace” by Ajahn Amaro. This book has given me much valuable insight into the practices of mindfulness and meditation, and I feel more equipped in working towards my goal of an ongoing "state of calm". I love his straight talking style of writing and his quirky sense of humour!
