Why Mindfulness Matters—and Why It Might Matter to You!

According to a report released by the American Psychiatric Association in May 2018, levels of anxiety among American adults have exploded in the last two years. Between 2017 and 2018 alone, the APA noted a five percent increase in anxious behaviors.

But what’s driving this flare-up of anxious people, and how can we deal with it?

“At this particular juncture in time, there’s a real sense of uncertainty about where humanity is going,” says Jon Kabat-Zinn, cofounder of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

After 40 years of treating stress disorders with mindfulness-based techniques, he is a premier authority on this increasingly pressing subject.

In the following FREE video, “Why Mindfulness Matters—and Why It Might Matter to You!” Jon explains his techniques and how they can help you deal more skillfully with a rapidly changing world:

How Living in the Present Moment Can Change Your Life

How present are you right now? Are you really here? Or is your mind off somewhere else, caught up in thinking and emotions, the past and the future, without being fully aware of that fact? It is all too easy to live focused on the next item on our never-ending to-do list, hoping to get it checked off and feel good for however long that feeling will last. But when, if ever, do we allow ourselves to simply drop into the present moment as it is—to practice residing in awareness, in the domain of being, or if you will, in the domain of “non-doing”? This rotation in consciousness can catalyze an entirely different way of being and acting in the world.

The miracle of mindfulness is that it reconnects us to the inherent richness of life inwardly and outwardly—a richness of embodied wakefulness and possibilities that can only be found and inhabited in this timeless moment we call “now.”

Posted by The Shift Network on Friday, February 14, 2020

There may not be anything more important for humanity than awakening and integrating the power of love for transformation in our world.

Yet, so many of us are disappointed in love…

Some of us (at least subconsciously) continue chasing after the elusive “Valentine’s Day love” we see on the big screen — mushy and sentimental.

Others discover that what they’ve been calling love just doesn’t gratify their egos as they’d hoped.

If you’re ready to understand and experience love in a whole new way, I have a special invitation for you…

On Saturday, February 22, renowned Enneagram teachers Russ Hudson, Jessica Dibb, and Robert Holden will guide you to explore real love through the power of all three of your wisdom centers — head, heart, and body — in a free video event, Expand Your Ability to Love Through the Enneagram.

Find out more and reserve your place for this complimentary online event here!

You’ll discover:

  • The Enneagram’s 9 lenses through which to look at love — and what it can reveal about YOU
  • How love operates in each of your 3 centers (head, heart, and body) — as Russ, Jessica, and Robert each share about one of the different centers
  • Why love isn’t just about “the heart” — it’s also generated from intelligence, clarity, and intimacy… as well as action and presence in the body
  • Why love is your best chance to become the person you most want to be in the world — and how love facilitates collective transformation as well
  • A guided practice to experience the power of love through all 3 centers

Redefine LOVE as something you become — rather than what you feel or receive

If you’re ready to let love be as big as it really is, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to explore how the Enneagram holds the keys to understanding — and becoming — love!

We hope you’ll join us for this illuminating, hour-long event.

When you register for Expand Your Ability to Love Through the Enneagram, renowned Enneagram teachers Russ Hudson, Jessica Dibb, and Robert Holden will show you how to have love be your “way of being” — in all your relationships, in your vocation, and in all your actions in the world — as you follow the Enneagram’s wisdom for living AS love.

Register here to save your spot!

A downloadable recording will be provided later to all who register, whether or not you listen to the scheduled event.
