    A 12-Minute Meditation to Awaken the Flow of Gratitude in Nature with Georgina Miranda

    A 12-Minute Meditation to Awaken the Flow of Gratitude in Nature with Georgina Miranda

    This week, Georgina Miranda guides us through a meditation to awaken the flow of gratitude in nature. Regardless of where you are—whether in a local city park, perched on a mountain top, or swimming in the sea—there is always a moment to pause and feel grateful for our inherent connection to nature.
    This meditation encourages you to breathe deeply, paying attention to the air, the smells, and the sensations around you. Feel the sun, wind, snow, or rain on your skin, and listen to the sounds of nature. Each breath becomes a bridge, connecting you more deeply with the world around you and fostering a sense of unity.
    Alongside this week's meditation, we also want to announce an upcoming event by Georgina Miranda this month. Join us for the masterclass, Conscious Leadership: Shaping the Future of Work, on Wednesday, July 24th, 2024, from 9am - 1pm Pacific / 12pm - 4pm Eastern on Zoom. This session will explore essential principles of mindfulness, personal leadership, and conscious decision-making, helping you navigate today’s complex organizational environments with clarity and compassion.

    A 12-Minute Meditation to Remember That We Belong to Each Other with Ruth King

    A 12-Minute Meditation to Remember That We Belong to Each Other with Ruth King

    This week, Ruth King offers a guided meditation practice from her heart to yours. Ruth King, a teacher, author, and founder of the Mindful of Race Institute, invites us to savor stillness and feel deeply into the ways our lives are interconnected.
    Imagine the gentle rustling of leaves as a reminder that we are part of a greater whole, each leaf connected to the same tree. This meditation encourages us to recognize our deep connections to one another, much like those leaves, each contributing to the vitality of the tree. As we explore this practice, we are reminded of our shared humanity and of the profound truth that we belong to each other.

    A 12-Minute Meditation for Working with Shame with Tovi Scruggs-Hussein

    A 12-Minute Meditation for Working with Shame with Tovi Scruggs-Hussein

    This week, Tovi Scruggs Hussein shares that the foundation of racial healing is emotional work. Most long-term healing involves deep exploration of emotions. Fortunately, many of us have come to recognize that the competencies we call “emotional intelligence” are the rock-solid basis of meaningful and productive change. The ability to regulate emotions is a superpower.

    This meditation is a key part of our Racial Healing Series, guided by Tovi. This series offers a space for reflection, vulnerability, and learning, aimed at dismantling racism through emotional intelligence and cultural humility. Each session, including today's, builds on mindfulness techniques to explore race and racism, fostering deep, systemic change through personal and collective healing. Join us as we navigate these critical topics with compassion and awareness, striving for a more inclusive and healed society.

Some good, some not so much

Really just depends on the week. Some of the experts are better than others, some are just better in an audio-only medium.
