JULY 11 - AUGUST 29
Mindful Summer Camp is a 7-week virtual course to help you live your best summer
Remember when summer days were truly carefree? Running around outside until it got dark, chasing lightning bugs and ice cream trucks?
If you’re anything like me you still live for summer yet some of the Magic is gone. And while maybe you’ve got amazing friends, family, travel, and work you find yourself feeling more Mind-Full than Mindful. With the extended daylight you’re running around from rooftop happy hour, wedding season, corporate outings, and family vacations. It’s great but also exhausting.
Do you ever pause to ask yourself, where’s the ME time in all of this activity?
Was all of that really fun or were you just running around?
The truth is most of us are so busy, tired and burned out. And while the sunshine and warm weather gives us LIFE we’re still running around, never truly feeling rested, clear-minded, or re-energized.
GOOD NEWS: It’s not your fault
The mass glorification of the hustle trapped us in a culturally fallacy- a trance that says we have to do more in order to be more. Naturally inner-peace and thriving feel out of reach BUT it doesn't have to be this way. You can exist outside of this limiting paradigm.
REALITY CHECK: Change is up to you
So, while it’s not your fault it IS your choice of whether or not you’ll break free from the hustle. It's a radical act, a healing & a sort of magic. It's your own personal alchemy... You must be willing to suspend disbelief and allow yourself to believe in something better. AND you must be braving and daring to operate outside the status quo. Are you willing? Do you want more freedom, relaxation and ease? If so, learn Mindfulness Magic and Break the Hustle with me this summer.
What’s Mindfulness anyway?
“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally… And then I sometimes add, in the service of self-understanding and wisdom.”
- Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness has it origins in his Zen Buddhist and Yogic studies. These traditions were integrated with scientific findings formation of what we know as mindfulness. It’s these traditional techniques applied in a scientific rather than a religious way.
Why practice mindfulness ?
focus + memory
creative problem solving
“I define mindfulness as the practice of being fully present and alive, body and mind united. Mindfulness is the energy that helps us to know what is going on in the present moment.”
-Thich Nhat Hanh
What’s Magic got to do with it?
As Mindfulness has its roots in the Mystical our programming will include the more mystical practices (many of which are also rooted in science) that remind us of how magical the experience of being alive truly is. These more magical tools enhance the skills of mindfulness and mindset so you can live with more freedom and fun this summer and beyond. Mysticism and is essential aspect of the human condition and will learn how to engage and “play” with these foundational concepts and dynamics to give our lives more meaning and joy.
“The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our senses to become sharper.”
Why Summer Camp?
As kids time to slow down and play was built into our calendar. We were encouraged explore, learn and try new things, enjoy the sunshine, and relax. While we may still have some of these elements in our summers often they’re experienced under the stress of work and familial pressures and/or that sneaky voice that creeps in making you feel guilty for taking and enjoying time off.
Many people wind up working on vacation and not enjoying summer activities as much as you could be able to.
Together in Summer Camp you’ll re-establish this mode of being within the parameters of adulthood.
Learning an essential skill of how to truly refresh and restore mind, body, and soul.
