When I started Natural Medicine, I did so with the express intent of involving meditators and yogis into the fold. Meditation and yoga has had by far the biggest impact on my life, and is often my saviour, so despite all the wonderful plant medicines, a healthy diet, exercise and all those OTHER natural medicines, it was this aspect that was in the forefront of my mind. However, Natural Medicine is a busy place, with lots going on, and it was hard to separate that aspect of 'natural health' from meditation or mindfulness practices.
And then, last week, I came across @bewithbreath, who wanted to form a list of meditators on Steemit. What if, I thought, we ran a group under the Natural Medicine banner, getting the benefits of a Natural Medicine upvote? @bewithbreath was keen to start a 'Meditation Hall' where we could run sessions for Steemians, and @tryskele, who started the #mindfulmonday tag, would do the curations. Read their introduction bios below - I'm thrilled to have them on the team! @porters, a vipassana meditator and a long time Natural Medicine contributor, will also be part of this too, helping moderate the channel and getting involved in the sweetness ways that only @porters can.
Because of all of the incredible health benefits of meditation and mindful practices, Natural Medicine always hoped to included meditators in this collective. Now, we're doing it in a way that hopefully you'll love.
Goals of 'Mindful Life'
- To unite meditators across the Steem blockchain so that we can share and strengthen our own practices
- To provide a space to discuss the philosophy, science and practical application of such practices in our lives
- To inspire and motivate each other
- To provide support if we might be struggling, connecting with like minded people who might offer solutions
