September 24th - 5 Mindful Musings

Recommended Posts

enhancing non-judgmental moment-to-moment awareness


Hi All! 

Here is your weekly dose of "5 Mindful Musings", a brief list of what's helping me live a more mindful life.

What I Am Excited About
My video interview with Sharon Salzberg. We discussed how to be compassionate without burning out, how to soften our self-judgment, the healing practice of equanimity, why anger is important for creating change, and why it's ok to feel what we feel... And I give her a special surprise near the end. 🙂

Mindfulness Exercises I Just Shared Freely
I just published this new article to support your mindfulness:
- Will Mindfulness Help My Anxiety?

A Podcast I Am Inspired By
My Healing Journey After Childhood Abuse, by Tim Ferriss. For those of you wondering how mindfulness and meditation can help heal trauma, this podcast audio and list of written resources is for you. Tim shares his story of uncovering old traumatic wounds during a mindfulness retreat with Jack Kornfield at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, and how Jack helped guide him to healing. Highly recommended.

Something I Am Curious About
Tripp. This virtual reality app (that pairs with Oculus) claims that it will help you be more mindful "to stay healthy inside and out". I am curious to learn more, and I'm generally skeptical of introducing visual-based technology to aid our ability to sense into our actual embodied experience. Thoughts?

Two Statements That I Often Repeat

1. Mindfulness is not brainfulness. The mind and the brain are not the same thing. 

2. Mindfulness is not about relaxation. It's about noticing our actual moment-to-moment experience without judging it. 

As always, please feel free to share your feedback in our Mindfulness Community Forums. Which musing above is your favorite? What do you want more or less of? Other suggestions? Just add a post to the forum and let me know!
