New here, looking for gentle souls.

I'm an author and an artist, acrylic paint on canvas.  I've tried so many forums where  members attack each other.  Society has too much of that.  I'm here to find others who seek calmness within and ways to positively affect all that surrounds us.  I know I need to practice mindfulness  more of the time, if I am to successfully navigate a world with increasing and ongoing turbulence.

Hello Morning Dew,

It is wonderful to have you in our community. The intention is for this to be a warm and compassionate space for mindful inquiry and exploration. Welcome to the group.

It is indeed a turbulent world. I believe mindfulness can help us to better navigate it.

What mindfulness practices do you currently use (even if only sporadically)?

Hi Gillian,

Thank you for the welcome.  Yes, mindfulness does help.  Before I learned of the term I called it staring, then meditation and now moved to the mindfulness term.  I've found following someone else's prescription does not necessarily work for me, but I'm willing to try.  I just clear my mind and let myself be in the moment.  I do this regularly what ever I'm doing, especially if I find I am too caught up in worry about things. 

I noticed after the fact that I had made a bunch of errors in my first post and learned there was no edit function.  Sheepish grin..

Hey @Morning Dew! On your first post, is there a button with three dots at the top right corner of it? You should be able to edit through there but let me know if you don't have that option.

@Gillian Sanger.  Thank you.  It worked.  Grin.

      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.
