How can we practice self-care through COVID-19 and beyond? And why should we? It’s easy to create distractions with the latest technology, news stories, or television shows. Welcome to Mindful by Design, an audio course all about mindfulness, meditation, evidence of how it all works and some guidance to make it work for you. Over five episodes and accompanying meditations, Rev angel Kyodo williams introduces core principles of the mindfulness practice through both science and lived experience.
Continuing on our journey of mindfulness, Rev angel Kyodo williams poses the question: why is it important to have a mindfulness practice that is tied to inner work as well as outer work? Dr. Sará King joins Rev in an awakening conversation about how wellness and social justice are one in the same and that mindfulness matters, not just for our personal lives, but also for the world we live in.
