In our work with the staff at PACT, we provide a “Monthly Mindful Moment” featuring an inspiration, a mindfulness practice and a resource. Here’s an example of what we are sharing this month.
In harmony with the energies of change and growth that Springtime brings, the CMA is currently re-evaluating the CommunitySHINE monthly workshop model. We are stopping to take a metaphorical breath, observe what is happening and open to new possibilities, and then proceed mindfully. Sometimes letting go of a plan creates the space for something even better to grow in its place.
This pause reconnected him with what was really important, and gave him the space to consider what he wanted to do with the strong feelings within.
We each have that capacity. We can learn to STOP, take a breath, open and observe what is happening with our thoughts and feelings, consider the impact of our actions, and then choose how best to respond.
