Mindful : December 2013
6 mindful December 2013 our thoughts I stow my meditation cushion under my bed. Other wise, my six-year-old daughter drags it around, like a little buddy. The cushion was a gift from my husband, who found just the right thing. It’s now worn and a little discolored. But it still suppor ts me—most days for 15 or 30 minutes. This well-worn cushion makes me recall questions I had when I star ted. How do I learn more about this? Who else is doing it? What’s the ben- efit? Am I doing it right? While a cushion is not required for practicing mindfulness, mine is a symbol for all those questions. I needed to figure out what kind was best for me, how to put it to use, and how to integrate meditation into my life. Making mindfulness a par t of your life is not a one-time thing. It’s a journey: you learn as you go. Like ever y journey, it involves practicalities, like cushions and schedules and when your children are allowed to interrupt your meditation. It also involves larger questions, like what books and teachers could be helpful, where to meet others interested in this way of viewing the world, and how mindfulness can help us face life’s big challenges. Many of you have heard that in addition to publishing Mindful, we’re launching another vehicle to share practi- cal tips, news, research, advice, and mindfulness teachings. The next step on our journey is MindfulTV, an online HD video channel, with the goal of helping you on your journey. We’ve heard from many of you. For some, Mindful and Mindful.org support long-held views about how to live and work. For others, it’s a new journey. You’re looking for pathways to explore mindful- ness and make it par t of your life. MindfulTV will be a big help, whether you’re getting acquainted with mindfulness or been involved for a long time. We’ll listen to your sugges- tions, produce compelling video, and introduce you to leaders in the mindfulness movement—like neuroscien- tist Richard Davidson, MBSR founder Jon Kabat-Zinn, busi- ness advisor Janice Mar turano, and others. I’m excited about what’s on the horizon here at Mindful. Mindfulness has been so much more than a cushion for me. It’s changed my life. I’m thrilled and honored to be on this journey with all of you.
