A Mindful Birthday

by Gisele Theriault September 17, 2016

A Mindful Birthday

I invite you to join me on my birthday, Sunday October 30th in a 4 Hour Meditate-athon to champion marginalized people who suffer from depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. If you can't join our team for the challenge, perhaps you can sponsor us? Any amount helps.  

The Mindfulness Challenge 2016 - A Compassionate World was created by The Centre for Mindfulness Studies. There, they directly teach the marginalized and also train social workers to bring these mindfulness tools to the streets. How great is that!? Mindful Necessities Studio created a team and will be actively involved to raise money for the cause.

The good news for those of you who'd like to join us but think you couldn't do it.. It IS 4 continuous hours but in 20 minutes segments of various practices;-) So perhaps 20 min of sitting guided meditation, walking meditation, yoga, eating meditation, etc. You can choose a chair or floor cushion. These practices benefit so many in need, including you and me. Please join us on the mat or sponsor our team if you are able.

Please click the image below to view our team page where you can learn more about joining us in person or donating to the cause.

On the topic of retreats, a friend recently shared scientific research she found (brain scans incl. long term studies of individuals) comparing mindfulness/meditation practice in retreat settings confer more benefits than daily practice. If you take two individuals with identical lifetime hours of meditation practice, there are more lasting changes in people who have gone on retreats (brains and behaviour).

This week I was thinking about how challenging it can be to be who we are and live in our place of heart when there are so many directives and expectations that we should behave in a particular way. How we present ourselves to the world and how we think are so influenced by our upbringing, peers and culture...

Mindful Necessities West to East

Rumi says "Let the beauty of what we love be what we do." I'm counting my blessings, both having carved a life by creating contemplative jewellery and now also enjoying the opportunity to create experience for people though retreats. 

 It took a long time for my body and mind to readjust from east to west, as it always does. Between the 10 hour time difference and the culture extremes, the practice of coupling patience and tenacity definitely came in handy.
