Congratulations on completing
Today is a day for integration. This is an opportunity to catch up with anything you've misssed, and repeat and consolidate any of the meditation practices offered this week.
Please take five minutes to reflect on these questions:
- How would you rate your effort this week? Are you satisfied or do you feel you’d like to do better next week?
- What got in the way of your practice (if anything)?
- What could you do differently next week to support your practice?
Revisit and reset your intention for signing up. If you haven’t already completed your intention guide, you can do that now.
The month is going to pass quickly. I invite you to truly commit to practising so you can experience the benefits that come from regular practice. If you don’t feel you’ve committed yourself fully so far, that’s totally okay. Without judging yourself for this past week, just set a new intention now to give it your all in the coming weeks.
In many ways mindfulness is really simple, but just like any skill, it takes practice to master.
Why not place post-it notes around your home or in your work space to remind you to pause and pay attention to the breath, how the body feels, or what your mind is doing in that moment?
“Motivation gets you going but habit gets you there.”

Today, visit the meditations page and choose whichever meditation you've enjoyed or benefitted from the most during this week, and practise it again today.
Notice how each time you sit to meditate, the inner landscape will be different, even though the guidance may be the same. Some days the mind is calm, and some days it’s so busy you can barely stay focused on one breath.
As you practise the same thing over, the brain starts to develop new neural pathways.
It takes time for new mental habits to develop, so remember to bring radical patience to this process.
As Pema Chodron, world renowned meditation teacher, shares:
“Meditation sows the seeds that enable us to be more awake in the midst of everyday chaos. It’s a gradual awakening, and it’s cumulative, but that’s actually what happens. We don’t sit in meditation to become good meditators. We sit in meditation so that we’ll be more awake in our lives.”
Don’t forget, this campaign is all about doing something good for yourself and helping transform the lives of others. You can still donate here to bring safe, clean drinking water to people who need it the most.
To help keep you motivated for the coming week, we’ve put together a little book for you featuring quotes from our guests.
