  24. CRolyn H. May 13, 2018 at 4:14 am - Reply

    I’m Carolyn and live in Massachusetts (though I’m from Colorado in a deep sense). I need a jump start to get back to mindfulness in all aspects of living, to bring me back to the present moment free from craving (I wish I still lived in Colorado) and aversion (I really really d not want to clean up the kitchen) — e.g. things that keep me from being happy and taking in the good that is all around me and within me. I enter this week with a greater intention to be mindful of my body, to listen to what my body really needs and wants, without craving. Peace in my body and Peace in my mind are so interdependent, and when I ignore this, or relate to these in a delusional way, I lose the connection to my,heart — especially loving kindness toward myself. I’m a bit anxious about making this commitment, because there are appointments, commitments, an older dog to walk, husehld chores I dislike, etc., and I think I need a silent retreat center to do this week of mindfulness with the greatest benefit. But this program is t asking us to shut off the phone and ignore the doorbell and stay away from daily commitments. That makes it a big challenge. Does anyone else feel this way?

    • Maria May 13, 2018 at 11:14 am - Reply

      Hi Carolyn,
      I can relate to the majority of what you shared so well here – thank you. I moved from California to Georgia earlier this year and I’m a Californian Girl and if I’m abusing my body with food it definitely affects my capacity for kindness and the person I become. I have been wanting to start some sort of meditation practice since moving here. Let’s allow this to be the guidance and support we need! Good luck! You got this!

    Thank you for this opportunity to learn about Mindfulness and to practice it. I have felt the benefits – when I’ve been practicing mindfulness I don’t get cross so quickly, I’m more aware of when I interrupt someone, more aware of not paying non judgemental attention to who I’m with. I want to improve my relationships and I know that practicing meditation and mindfulness will be valuable.
