Apple juice anyone?
Like yoga has proliferated the world, mindfulness is becoming almost a lifestyle brand. One could argue that both have been watered down. But maybe that’s not all bad. Often we water down things to make them more digestible. Like apple juice for little ones.
An invitation to explore
Yoga and mindfulness have become more approachable for the masses as a result of this “watering down.” Both are available on nearly every street corner. (Except maybe, in Alabama where it has been banned in public schools for 25 years. WHAT?) Accessibility is helpful in delivery. When individuals have the opportunity to espouse a practice in small and large ways, depending on their desired path, no one is forced, only invited to explore their inner worlds.
In the world at large, many people are living disconnected from themselves, from others, from their own experience of this one wild and precious life. It is as if there is a wall between people. I can’t help but think that throughout history this has been true as evidenced by repeated mass historic persecution of the “other,” to modern-day concentration camps on American soil, to the horror of recurrent school shootings.
How can mindfulness help? Mindfulness reduces anxiety, depression, heart disease, and inflammation, just to name a few, and brings about self awareness that connects people, reducing the separations that our over scheduled, over stimulated lives promote.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Full Catastrophe Living defines mindfulness this way; “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally.” That is a broad definition, the corner stone, in my opinion, is the essence of those two words, “non-judgmental presence.” Deeper inside the practices of mindfulness and yoga, (which is, simply put, mindful movement meditation,) is the opportunity to wake up and to recover aliveness, and recover connection to self and others.
