Day Fourteen



Want to extend your experience beyond August 2021?

If you've felt the benefits of meditation and you’re ready for this transformative journey to continue beyond August 2021, then consider a Power of Presence membership, offering six weeks of support beginning on 1st September!


Take a moment to acknowledge where you’re at in the Mindful in May Encore.

Perhaps you’ve successfully meditated every day since August 1.

Maybe you’ve managed it three or four times a week.

Maybe you’ve haven’t done any meditations and you feel a bit disappointed about that.

Wherever you’re at, please take a moment to let go of any feelings or judgements you might have about your performance, and meet yourself in the here and now.

It’s also useful to remember that shorter regular practices can be more effective than very occasional long ones. As Bhante advises us on day 10:

“I would say it’s better to build from maybe one minute, to two minutes, three minutes and continue building rather than doing it once for three hours and then waiting until Christmas.” (followed by laughter!) 

Today, visit the meditations page and choose a meditation from this week to repeat today to consolidate your learning and practice.

Download the Mindful in May mid-point reflection guide and take a moment to reflect on your efforts so far. If you’ve fallen off track, this is a great time to revisit your intentions and reconnect to what you’d like to get out of the second half of this month.

The practice of meditation is the learned skill of returning one’s focus over and over again to the place where one intends for it to be. If you’ve fallen off track with your intentions, now is a great opportunity to return your attention to committing yourself to meditating for the coming weeks.

If you are participating with us on social media, feel free to share any of your reflections from the week in the private Mindful in May Facebook community or on Instagram.

As a global community, our fundraising continues, and so, as we develop this lifelong skill of mindfulness, we are also contributing through our collective fundraising to the transformation of so many lives through the gift of clean, safe drinking water.

Today, when you sit to practise, take a moment to think about the thousands of people who are meditating with you this month around the world, and the thousands of people we are supporting through raising funds to build water projects in areas of need.

Remember that every $50AUD raised this August will bring clean water to one person for life…

Let’s keep the fundraising going. If you haven't made a donation and you'd like to, you can do so here.

To help keep you motivated for the coming week, we’ve put together another little book for you, featuring quotes from this week.
