Hello and welcome to the Mindfulness Week Project. …

Hello and welcome to the Mindfulness Week Project.

Starting on 14th of December 2012 I will send daily emails with suggestions on how to increase present moment awareness. In the attached presentation you will see the detailed explanation on how it works.

It is my personal goal to receive 100 mindfulness diaries, so please keep sending beyond the date. All the posts will be available on Small Steps Coaching Blog http://www.small-steps-coaching.com/blog

  • Transcript

    • 1. My journey into meditation and mindfulness practicesreminds me of the first time I surfed. Afterestablishing the rules of left and right legged practiceon the beach, the instructor simply said that we wereready to surf. My mind was desperately trying to makesense of it but first it had to let the body experiencethe process. MindfulnessWeekProject www.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 2. MindfulnessWeekProjectwww.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 3. And off we went into the water with the instruction:“Paddle!” So we paddled and paddled and sooneverybody went into their own exploration of thepower of waves. From time to time the instructorwould shout: “Paddle! Paddle now! It’s coming!” And Ipaddled like my life depended on it, back and forthmaking sure I was not too far from the shore; aware ofmy body tiring out. There was certainly a dose of fearinvolved as my mind started to question: "What is itthat I am paddling for? I dont get it? When is itenough?" At a certain point I even tried to ask othersbut my words got lost in the distance. MindfulnessWeekProject www.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 4. MindfulnessWeekProjectwww.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 5. As I was giving up, a wave propped up under the surfboard and paddling suddenly made complete sense. Ifelt so small in comparison with the ocean whilemaking the first attempt to stand up. My wobbly feetwere not strong enough to endure the new experience.The meaning of balance got a new set of neuro-connections. When I gloriously fell into the strongcurrents of the ocean, I wanted to scream with joy, toexpress the full body buzz, but new waves were comingin and I had to get to that board again. I was bothexhausted and happy. MindfulnessWeekProject www.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 6. MindfulnessWeekProjectwww.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 7. On that day I learned: Calm waters bring rest and chat with friends = Make the most out of the present moment even when seemingly there is nothing going on. Middle waves tire you out but improve strength of your arms = It may seem fruitless at times, but perseverance is the key ingredient of success. Breaking waves gets the heart pumping and tests your abilities = If opportunity comes, try your best to make the most out of it. Keep learning and celebrate each milestone. MindfulnessWeekProject www.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 8. I have not surfed again since that May but the lessonsremain to serve as a metaphor for my experience of thepresent moment awareness. Like waves, these subtleand focused moments have increased my productivity,enabled me to relax with ease and observe thedifference between ego-based and awareness-baseddecisions. What follows is the chain-reaction ofimproved well-being. I am excited to share practiceswith you and am grateful to you for sending log entriesback to me. MindfulnessWeekProject www.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 9.  Below you will find daily entries for your practice. For one week I will send daily mindfulness reflections and practices (please check the next slide for an example). Three suggestions each day for one week will include walking and/or lying meditation, tips on how to connect with the present moment no matter where you are or what you are doing and quotes to bring awareness. Awareness of your thoughts may at times be daunting. I highly recommend that you embrace the attitude of a compassionate scientist: keep the data that are useful and discard the ones that are not. MindfulnessWeekProject www.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 10. Day One Sample Practice MindfulnessWeekProject www.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
    • 11.  Shift your position if you are sitting, align your spine while you are standing, relax your shoulders and count your breaths. Think of the time when you had a WOW moment. Let the memory run in front of you like a video. If other thoughts come in just let them go and bring your focus back to the WOW moment. Try doing it for 5 minutes. Pay full attention to lyrics or the tune of a song. Sing along and smile. You may opt to do one or all of the practices 3 times a day (morning, afternoon/noon and evening – before sleep) MindfulnessWeekProject www.small-steps-coaching.com/blog
