The word “exercise” often has the connotation of something repetitive and relatively mindless. For instance, if you keep doing many reps of a strengthening exercise at the gym, you improve your muscle tone. Is it totally mindless? Not totally: if you get sloppy and don’t pay attention to form, this will affect your results. But, otherwise, you don’t need to be especially mindful to reap the benefits of this kind of exercise.
Not so with mindfulness exercises. We are not talking about doing mindless reps. We are talking about mindful engagement. The more you engage in it, the more of yourself you put into it, the more it affects you. What changes is not just the outcome. You are changed by the process of mindful engagement.
In other words: Mindfulness is transformational. This is the spirit in which I am inviting you to watch the 9 videos on this site. They describe aspects of mindfulness. Think of each of them as an invitation to see the world through a different lens.
