This survey will be open until Tuesday, July 23.
Thank you in advance for your constructive feedback.

DEVELOPING PRESENCE

This month is dedicated to short daily intention-setting meditations. This week, try this intention practice to help cultivate presence and more joy.
 
Before you even get out of bed this week, commit to doing at least one thing a day with just a bit slower than you normally do. It could be anything from eating a meal, driving, walking to class or talking with friends. You don’t even have to know what it will be as you start the day. Making the commitment is what really counts.
 
When you do choose your activity, practice being present as you slow down. Notice your breath. Notice who or what is with you. Listen. Take your time. Breathe. Notice how you feel right then and there.
 
Ghandi said, “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” Slowing down can be a radical act of kindness, to yourself and to everyone in your presence!


With a little daily mindfulness, we make our world a better place.

Best,
Ami Brimhall
