Walking Meditation – What Is It And How To Do It? | Leadership and Spirituality | Scoop.it
Walking meditation? What could it be? Nothing too complicated here. It's pretty straightforward. Walking meditation is a form of meditation done while walking. Yes, it's that simple. But there is, of course, more to it.

Why Do We Feel Awe?

Why Do We Feel Awe? | Leadership and Spirituality | Scoop.it
News stories and social media posts inundate us every day with tips for greater happiness, health, and general well-being. But who has the time to fit them into our already packed schedules?
Recently, though, my research has led me to believe that one simple prescription can have transformative effects: look for more daily experiences of awe. This doesn’t require a trek to the mountains. What the science of awe is suggesting is that opportunities for awe surround us, and their benefits are profound.

"Don't underestimate the power of goosebumps!" - Berkeley Greater Good. The importance of bringing some awe into your life!

Every day Molly finds something new because her curiosity knows no bounds. She reminds us daily that every moment has never happened before and therefore we cannot help but be in awe.

How to Meditate: A Beginner's Guide

How to Meditate: A Beginner's Guide | Leadership and Spirituality | Scoop.it
The in's and out's of meditation — what it is, why it's used, and the many benefits you can get from practicing it.

 

The word meditation can immediately conjure images of Buddhist monks in saffron robes or new-age beatniks in clouds of incense — which isn’t necessarily untrue. But meditation isn’t about religion per se, or even spirituality, really.

Meditation is about training your brain to bring your thoughts and feelings into awareness; it’s about examining who you are and your place in the world; it teaches you to appreciate every moment for what it is.

—Perry Santanachote

The Hidden Price of Mindfulness Inc.

The Hidden Price of Mindfulness Inc. | Leadership and Spirituality | Scoop.it
As the practice of mindfulness is packaged and peddled, it’s hard not to wonder if something essential is being lost.

Via Mister Jeff
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:
When we package anything, what does it become but a new quick product. Mindfulness is a way of living that cannot be packaged as a one-size-fits-all and super-sized. I am always wary of corporate views of anything.
