Each year in May thousands of people commit to meditating 10 minutes a day for Mindful in May, the world’s largest online mindfulness fundraising campaign.
The campaign, founded by doctor, meditation expert and author Elise Bialylew, has two goals: introduce people to the transformative power of mindful meditation, and raise money for clean water projects in developing countries.
The program is evidence-based, and includes video interviews with global experts in mindfulness, the brain and wellbeing practices, including mindfulness movement pioneer Jon Kabat Zinn; Sharon Salzberg; Tara Brach and many more.
It includes 31 days of mindfulness training and guided audio mediations, and video interviews.
Even a few minutes of mindful meditation a day is proven to help people manage stress, communicate more clearly, stay focussed, sleep better and live by their values. The four-week program can be completed anywhere and officially begins on May 1, but registrations are open through early May. It’s $59 plus GST to sign up, and every $50 of that fee is donated to provide someone with clean and safe drinking water.
