MINDFUL NECESSITIES UPDATE | Ireland | LAST CHANCE SALE

How are youuu? I hope you started this day with enthusiasm of how to be gentle and kind with yourself and all that unfolds in such a way you would treat someone that you cherish deeply. I have been traveling these last couple of weeks in Spain and Portugal by train, bus, car, scooter and my favorite form of transportation.. walking. Firstly being aware that the languages spoken around me are not my native tongue demands a different kind of attention. It requires an intuitive sensitivity if you want to have any understanding of the people. It invites a constant state of mindful presence, mindful listening and mindful caring both with yourself and others.

Then there is something super rich about walking as a pilgrim. When you are walking 20 - 30 km a day, especially on the Camino where a good portion of time is spent on ancient trails and forests that have not been developed, wow, heaven! Then there are times when the mind plays torturous games and agitation rides super high. Like "what the hell am I doing, I'm tired and hot" ..hell!  You are walking in a humbling feast of nature's beauty as well as a sufficient amount of ugliness in the name of progression. In the world right now there is enough craziness to keep us wrapped up in fear to never want to get out of bed. And there is also a tremendous amount of beauty and extraordinary human kindness on the planet to keep you in a state of awe for every breath we breathe. My friend Daniela is always saying "Love everything, even the things you don't like."  This practice will lead you to nothing but goodness. ;-)

On the topic of retreats, a friend recently shared scientific research she found (brain scans incl. long term studies of individuals) comparing mindfulness/meditation practice in retreat settings confer more benefits than daily practice. If you take two individuals with identical lifetime hours of meditation practice, there are more lasting changes in people who have gone on retreats (brains and behaviour).

This week I was thinking about how challenging it can be to be who we are and live in our place of heart when there are so many directives and expectations that we should behave in a particular way. How we present ourselves to the world and how we think are so influenced by our upbringing, peers and culture...

Mindful Necessities West to East

Rumi says "Let the beauty of what we love be what we do." I'm counting my blessings, both having carved a life by creating contemplative jewellery and now also enjoying the opportunity to create experience for people though retreats. 

 It took a long time for my body and mind to readjust from east to west, as it always does. Between the 10 hour time difference and the culture extremes, the practice of coupling patience and tenacity definitely came in handy.
