“…mindfulness is not something we have to obtain from somewhere.
It is an innate quality — part of being human.“
— Andy Puddicombe
This Week’s Highlights:
Stay Tuned as we continue to track the top stories impacting the World of Meditation..!
With a toungue-in-cheek attitude, Two guys started a Kickstarte page for (get this) a vinyl record of SILENCE… Yep, that’s right… No music, no narration, no nothing… just 40 minutes of pure silence.
Luckily, the guys are upfront by stating, “…this (product) does not require a record player to be fully enjoyed. Technically, it doesn’t even require this record.”
Hmmm… Let’s file this Competitive Meditation primer under “Doing the right thing for ALL the wrong reasons…”
But, we gotta admit that Muse has a catchy gimmick to get people wearing their headbands…
A bittersweet story… Voice of America news reports on Rohingya refugee women who practice meditation, yog and art therapy to help cope with the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Myanmar…
(We wonder if Jack Dorsey met any of them during his Vipassana retreat…)
Call it a “unicorn hangover”, but Headspace HAD to respond to Calm’s latest headline-grabbing news…
So today, Andy Puddicombe, the man (and voice) behind Headspace, personally records a 4-minute meditation for Bostonians and adds a sweet personal op-ed in the Boston Globe to boot..!
“I’ve always said that lovingkindness and compassion are inevitably woven throughout meditation practice even if the words are never used or implied, no matter what technique or method we are using.”
