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.”

Move Past Self-Limiting Beliefs and Welcome Grace Into Your Life

Find True Fulfillment & Stop Chasing After ‘More’

We all want more out of life… more love, more joy, more meaning…

Our intensely materialistic culture also tells us to want more, but this “more” has us chasing after external sources of perceived happiness — a “perfect” relationship, dream job, financial windfall, or similar shiny object.

Yet, we all eventually discover that “more” of these material desires is never enough— because all of us have a fundamental drive for true fulfillment and meaning on a deeper level.

If life is calling you to rediscover the luminous love, joy, and peace that is your deepest nature, I have a special invitation for you…

On Wednesday, February 26, spiritual teacher Miranda Macpherson will help you begin to relax out of your unfulfilling patterns and into living a life of Grace — in a free video event, Find True Fulfillment & Stop Chasing After ‘More’: Why Your Ego Gets in the Way of Receiving Life’s Deepest Gifts.

In this powerful hour, you’ll discover:

  • How to spot the false idols that direct you into an endless loop of constantly seeking meaning without ever feeling fulfilled
  • Specific ways you’re likely sabotaging love and holding back on letting “the good” fully into your life
  • How divine love melts your ego’s defenses — making you feel vulnerable AND more transparent to Grace
  • The transforming power of what Miranda calls Ego Relaxation — learning to stay present and undefended with what IS
  • A potent meditation and inquiry practice to compassionately dissolve your obstacles — and finally allow nourishing goodness to permeate your heart, mind, and life

Reconnect with the source of grace and find true fulfillment

With Miranda’s guidance, you’ll discover how to move beyond the tendency to sabotage your own fulfillment — so you can confidently and selflessly share your unique gifts with a world that is sorely in need of them.

In Find True Fulfillment & Stop Chasing After ‘More’: Why Your Ego Gets in the Way of Receiving Life’s Deepest Gifts, Miranda Macpherson will help you explore the reasons you resist the force that’s always trying to help, heal, grow, and bless you…

… and what it takes to get out of your own way so you can walk through this world as the graceful human being you were made to be.

This event is free but requires registration. RSVP here!

We hope you’re able to catch the event as scheduled. However, if you register and miss it, you’ll receive a downloadable recording of the event as soon as it’s available.
