Wow! Welcome, Mafalda! I look forward to exploring your work.

What kinds of social responsibility activities do you develop? 

Out of curiosity, could you share what lead you to fall in love with mind potential in 2008? 

Looking forward to being a part of this community with you,

Sean

Ohhhh Sean, thank you 🙂

I fell in love with mind potential in 2008 when I arrived to a period of my life where I felt lost....I friend of mine saw that and invited me to be part of a project of meditation with children, and I said yes....That's when all started.  It took me 5 years but in 2013 I quit my job and createt bloom - Focus on the Good and never looked back.

As far as social responsibility activites are concerned, I've started working in 2014 as a volunteer and mindfulness facilitator in State prisons with inmates.

I've carried out a mindfulness program - Breaking Bars - To Be - at the Carregueira State prison in Lisbon with 12 inmates identified with the higher levels of aggressiveness - working with mindfulness for inclusion and it was a transforming experience to me - we always go with our bias/prejudices and fear and the greatest lesson was that we are all human, we are all equal.

Thank you for wanting to know.

Warmly, Mafalda

      I feel present, calm and grounded when I'm focusing my breath and also some thoughts just run out here and there but I'm ok with that just let it be and I can feel my eyes are very tired that I don't even really care about it. I think I will have a good sleep tonight. 
    • Hi everyone,  I am Thuraya. A Palestinian educator who has been looking for different ways to practice mindfulness and help myself know how to let go. I am using this platform to get more into practical performance of mindfulness and the correct implementation of its techniques 
    • Hi everyone, I'm so glad to be here participating! A few months ago I finished a midfulness training. Time goes by very fast and there is always a lot to do in my job; but I want to continue cultivating mindfulness and teaching it;  for me, it´s  a challenge to be able to communicate in English(another reason to be here).  When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut 🙂 and also a truck driver. Later, as a teenager, I wanted to be an engineer. And after the experiences life has given me, now I want to go slowly and slowly. I loved music, and I had a CD of music of Buddhist monks, I liked to listen to them, it relaxed me, I didn't know I was going to meditate 🙂 .   Greetings to all!  
    • Hi Wahby17,  Welcome! What a Story to behold; one never knows what Comic Figures can be powers of example, especially ones who Meditate!
    • Hi, I'm a university student who has been meditating his entire life for multiple reasons. It might sound stupid but as a child I loved reading comics, and one of my favorite characters was Iron Fist. Basically he meditated a lot, so out of habit I did too in an attempt to imitate him, and bit by bit I got more and more interested as I saw results both mental and physical. I researched more and more and became more aware of myself. I'm glad I can now join communities with people who can share their different experiences on this topic.
