Sustaining continuity of practice, attending groups, reading and listening to podcasts has supported me in living mindfully for the last twenty four years. I recognise from experience and study, that a personal practice needs nurturing through the companionship of like minded others, including authors and speakers at events. Over the years I have listened to many podcasts at Sounds True, a company that embodies an ethical approach to business, as well as offering great quality products. Insights At The Edge is a free offering on Sounds True, and features podcast interviews with Tami Simon and leading figures in the world of personal growth.
I was recently researching resources for my participants on the Deepening Mindfulness course that I am currently teaching, and came across this podcast by a friend and colleague, Florence Meleo-Meyer. Florence Meleo-Meyer is a senior teacher at the acclaimed Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. In this podcast Florence speaks about the practice of interpersonal mindfulness and how mindfulness helps us heal from trauma. She offers a brief mindfulness practice for when we feel the need to return to ourselves.
