Real World Mindfulness Challenge: Free Live Instagram Event
May 21, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 9:15 pm UTC-6
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until June 1, 2023
Do you find it difficult to return to mindfulness in the middle of your everyday life?
We understand that staying present, connected, and open to possibilities can be a challenge, especially in the midst of a trying situation. But the good news is, you have the natural ability to be mindful! The only problem is that our default thinking habits often get in the way. Imagine if you could disrupt those habits and be mindful when it matters most. Imagine if you had a path to return to mindfulness no matter where you are or what you’re doing.
That’s where our Real-World Mindfulness Challenge comes in!
For 24 days, we invite you to commit to fifteen minutes of practice and play with the eight mindful habits that are essential to return to mindfulness—to see clearly and act intentionally—in the real world.
Each day, we will pick one card from the eight mindful habits in the Return to Mindfulness deck on deckible.com. We will guide you through a brief meditation followed by listening within and reflecting together on how we can integrate the insights into our day, so that we may begin each action and interaction with greater clarity, courage, and care. (You don’t need to buy the mindfulness deck to be able to practice with us, and of course if you did, you could continue to practice with the reminders on your own or with loved ones.)
Mindfulness doesn’t mean we have to be serious or perfect!
Join us to show up authentically for practice, play, and community as foster, together, eight mindful habits—awareness, compassion, curiosity, energy, appreciative joy, inner calm, focus, and equanimity. We will practice and play with each mindful habit for three days.
