Our Indiegogo campaign, to fund our forthcoming meditation app, is approaching the 50% mark! Since the campaign is a month long and we’re just over a week in, this is fantastic news.
Already almost $4,000 has been contributed by 55 backers.
Our app will offer access to a huge, and ever-expanding, library of guided meditations, led by Bodhipaksa. The app itself will be free, although a subscription will be required to unlock all of the guided meditations.
This is our adaptation to the age of the app. We used to support our activities by publishing CDs, but of course that’s been in decline for a long time. Even MP3 are now losing popularity, as various … Read more »

But, she explained, one does not have to be Buddhist to engage in mindfulness.
“Actually, many people of different religions practice the techniques of mindfulness to deepen their spiritual experience,” she said. “There is no dogma or belief system, so one does not have to have any …
This is fantastic, just a few days into our month-long campaign.
What this app will be offering is access to a large, and ever-expanding, library of my guided meditations, along with recordings of talks and workshops.
The app will have at least 80 guided meditations when it goes live (expected date, July of this year) and I’ll be adding to it anything else I record.
We’re offering great perks to supporters. Even if you’re an Android user, it’s worth supporting this campaign. We have several perks that don’t depend on access to the app, and also supporting the … Read more »

Save for the lack of furniture, “A-901: Breathing Room” appears as an ordinary conference room. It sits squarely within the rest of the office, which buzzes with the steady meetings and conversations that characterize most corporate buildings. Soft mats, for sitting, are piled to one side of the room. Digital devices are not allowed.
A few times a week, dozens of employees gather in the …
A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting its shoes on.
Mindfulness is becoming ever more popular and is in danger of being seen as a panacea for all the problems that trouble the human mind. Even when the practice is divorced from the other elements that form part of a spiritual path, it can be a useful tool for self management and helping to create greater contentment for our lives.
Practicing mindfulness can help us to work out …
They’re trying to live in the moment — taking time to pay attention to, and be grateful for, the everyday things that can enhance our lives if we let them.
One of my perpetual, unofficial New Year’s resolutions is to practice mindfulness in my consumption of entertainment.
I strive to benefit from the little things others might not notice — and, in the process, squeeze every bit of pleasure possible from a performance or event.
I thought of this concept recently at the end …
If you struggle with dysregulated (addictive/impulsive) behavior, you might have heard that mindfulness can help you overcome the behavior.
In fact, you have likely seen numerous articles on how mindfulness can help you with pretty much every problem you have ever had (Dysregulated behavior! Anxiety! Relationship issues! Work stress! Ingrown toenails!). You may even have been pressured to practice mindfulness by friends or colleagues.
