Illuminating the mindFUL path: reflections on teaching mindfulness
Work Sought: personal reflection essays; personal narrative; recorded guided practices
Over recent years, the practice of mindfulness has become increasingly well recognised in the global world, inspiring rich discussion and research into its potential for wellbeing and life meaning. Does it offer the chance for a more integrated and better understood relationship with our minds? Can it help us to settle, ground, and rest more completley?
Thousands of people seek to learn to live more mindfully via mindfulness tuition, be it in a group setting or via one-to-one facilitation. But what is mindfulness like as an experience, as a way of living, as a practice that becomes embedded within one's own narrative? This collection seeks contributions from individuals who teach mindfulness, and will explore how people find mindfulness, how they have developed and help others develop sustainable mindfulness practice, how mindfulness is transformative, and how and why many mindfulness practitioners find they are inspired and motivated to help others via teaching.
Submittors will also be given the opportunity to submit a recording of a guided practice for inclusion in an accompanying CD, along with a short section on a practice particularly meaningful to them.
