About Level 2: Practice

In the Practice stage of your Journey you’ll learn how to keep your daily meditation practice going and develop consistency. While ultimately meditation carries a quality of letting go and relaxing deeply, initially it requires effort—you need to remind yourself to come back to the breath and be aware of your mind. By gently building the habit of mindfulness, meditation gradually becomes a natural and spontaneous way of being. You become more genuinely in touch with yourself and the world around you.

Let’s get started.

The core content for your Journey can be found on the Mindworks App and selected complementary blogs are on the Website. During the Practice stage, set aside 15-20 minutes each day to meditate, absorb and contemplate the content. A median time for this module is 2-3 weeks; some people take longer, some go faster. Take the time you need to make practice a regular part of your daily routine and enjoy your Journey.

To complete the Practice module:

  • Each day, choose a Meditation Option.
  • Each day, contemplate a Daily Cup.
  • Every 2nd or 3rd day progressively work through the assignments list in the order given below.
