Mindfulness can be a foundation for something big.
If you have a mindfulness practice, you know how motivating and energizing it can be.
But as I read through people’s thoughts on the comment boards, I noticed a powerful theme. . .
. . . new beginnings.
Practitioners from around the world were sharing their hopes for the power of mindfulness.
I saw people taking Jack Kornfield’s words and moving forward with them. So many commenters had a goal, a dream, a place they wanted to bring mindfulness practice. I found it truly inspiring.
So I wanted to share just a few of those thoughts here.
“Such a practice in my work life and daily interests could only deepen any sense of harmony and joy. This seems a good time to begin to be more in touch with myself, and to assist in listening to and seeing people round me more appreciatively.”- Alastair Lov, Psychotherapist, Australia
“In my own practice, I hope to continue being patient with myself, and allowing myself to stumble and fail with humility and gentleness. In doing this for myself, I also hope to help my patients do the same: to make room for illness, pain, stress and care for it with ‘loving attention.'”
– Keith Haas, LCSW, Lexington, KY
“Watching this video helped me see that I have not been mindful lately. I’ve let my client schedule take over…again. Thanks for the beautifully delivered reminder. The rest of my day will surely benefit.”
– Diana White, Brainwave Technologist, Boston, MA
“Thanks for sharing this lovely story of mindfulness and connection. It was a reminder to me of how sometimes I think that mindfulness practices get misconstrued as isolating or all about the ‘inner work’ and not about how it opens up to powerful ways of connecting. I am thinking about how to highlight that aspect more in my work with people.”
– Sarah Hughes, Family Therapist, BC, Canada
