Share this post
You have made your first decision. You have decided that you want to know what this thing called ‘mindfulness’ actually is. In this first content video of the course, I reflect on why we are here.
Purpose: consider and analyze your own preconceptions about Mindfulness.
Task: Think carefully about the kinds of images of Mindfulness you have encountered in the press, in literature, or in person. Reflect on your own experiences and expectations.
Respond: Write a comment that sets out your preliminary views about the meaning and dimensions of Mindfulness today. What does it mean to you and what do you think about people who engage with it?
Time: 5-10 minutes to write an original comment, and then 10 minutes to respond to 2 other comments. You can also like other people’s comments.
