Re: What Made You Smile Today?

I was in the supermarket and announced to my mum really loudly that a cake looked like a haemorrhoid ring...few people in the aisle started cracking up, mum asked if I'd taken my meds (hadn't) ...flew round the supermarket on the trolley being a fool ...today was a good day

Oh I wish I could come to one of your meditation sessions!

How many people showed up? And just out of curiosity...how many of them were men?
I know it doesn't matter lol...I'm just curious!

I go to a support group, and it's always been more women...actually for years it was all women and me. But over the last couple years it's been me and 1 other guy...and the rest are women.

I was able to do a guided meditation with my group a few weeks ago...and it went great! It was a guided meditation about mindfully eating a raisin! Was actually a really fun thing to do as a group!
You should try it with your group!

haha I did too!

Before doing the mindful eating exercise...I thought about using some kind of much more practical piece of food...rather than a gross raisin.
A slice of pizza, or a hamburger perhaps!

But I decided I was going to push on and do as my book/cd suggested (Mindfulness for beginners by Jon Kabat-Zinn) and use a raisin.
It was really neat actually.
My first initial reaction when I bit into the raisin was that I didn't like it and it was gross.
But I decided not to linger with that reaction...and just moved on.
The more I started to chew on it...the more it started to taste better to me! lol

I went in hating raisins...
I left really enjoying them!

Re: What Made You Smile Today?

What a cool idea!!!! Thank you!

Five showed up this week: three ladies and two gents

We're focusing on the diaphragmatic breathing and have been sitting in partial silence for about 20 minutes. I could have sworn I heard someone snoring a little this time. I consider that a good session! Hahahaha!

Responses when I asked them to describe how they felt afterwards vs. when they arrived: relaxed, clear, less foggy, hadn't noticed how tense they hold their body until they took time to do this, etc.

I'm really diggin' the interactions, the other cool workshops/activities I find out about, the other healing energies I encounter, and only being committed to two days a month makes it manageable. (it just doesn't look right with that damn "e" in there.....lmao)

Re: What Made You Smile Today?

My bulldog is obsessed with the smell of car exhaust. I swear! So much that when we walk through parking lots, she pulls me over to each parked car and sticks her nose directly in the exhaust pipes. Needless to say, I don't take her through parking lots anymore. But when I take for walks in my neighborhood, like today, she will stand on the corner at an intersection just sniffing the air. She's so crazy, people drive by and wonder WTF she is doing. I tug and tug on her leash, but she's gotta embarrass me and not budge a bit. Makes me so mad!
