You have probably heard about it before, know someone who did it once or even did it yourself but didn't know you were doing it. The fact is that anyone can have a mindfulness practice, it not obscure or exotic and it is something that we already do whether or not we realize it.
Have you ever just stood there at the end of the beach and looked out on as the sun set or rose on the horizon? How about when you were out for a hike and made it to the top to overlook the valley below? Or noticed, just for a moment how full the moon was or the look on a loved one's face? What was that feeling like? How much noise did your mind make then? Was there a sense of great calm and fulfillment?
As the examples demonstrate, we all already have the capacity to be fully present, mindful and witness what is passing in front of us and it doesn’t require us to change who we are. With practice we can cultivate these qualities that have been scientifically supported as ways to increase such experiences so that you might have access to those feelings more often and benefit us in so many ways.
What would life be like if you could pull away from emotionally intense situations? How would outcomes have been different if you would have noticed your inner state before speaking words you could not take back? What would it be like if you could simply see your reactions to an unwanted situation then act based upon your values so that while hard, your life would be meaningful?
This course was designed to help you tap into this ability which you are already doing and draw from hundreds of hours and feedback from participants in a variety of situations that have completed this work before you. They have all benefited from developing such a practice and within four weeks, you can as well.
