We need space
We need space internally and externally
Our distracted world
We live in an age where we are in an almost constant state of distraction. From endless scrolling on social media, news sites, advertising, and the ability to watch a whole season of T.V. shows in one sitting. We have developed habits that keep our attention occupied 24/7. Modern day humans are more connected than they have been ever in human history and yet our attention spans are under 20 seconds. We need space. We need pause. We need to develop a new habits that include attention, deep listening and compassion.
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness, to put it simply, is our undivided attention. It’s paying attention in such a way where we feel the moment we are in with all of our awareness and presence.
A few benefits of mindfulness:
generating a greater respect and politeness for everything around us
listening and noticing
being able to be in the moment - good or bad
focus more on what’s important in our lives
“We are not taught how to be still or bring attention to the relationships between ourselves and the biosphere and thus we've created a culture that is disconnected from where things come from, who makes them, where they go, and the impacts our daily actions have on communities and the resources we all share and depend on.”
Below you’ll find my handwritten and recorded mindfulness meditation practices for you to listen too. A transcribed version will be available shortly. Each month, you’ll find a new practice to listen too! These practices are complimentary.
