It’s that time of the year again! The pre-pre-holidays! Thanksgiving is in 2 weeks a few days. That’s why we’ve got to stop, meditate and listen. Yes, 2010 is rapidly winding down, so in true YogaDork fashion we are launching a challenge!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take the next 365 hours to focus on the PAUSE: whether it be in the middle of a yoga pose, in the middle of your thought and action, or in the middle of your exhale and inhale, pranayama kombhuka style (just don’t do it in the middle of the street ok?) Do your best to be mindful of that pause, to bring the moment back to consciousness.
Can you do that for every waking hour between now and November 25th? Aw, sure you can. Try it! Yes, that is 365 hours. So by the end of 15.2 days you’ll be all zen and juicy for Thanksgiving game (or feast time) kickoff. International YogaDorks are of course encouraged to play along.
HOW TO ENTER:
Then tell us about it in the comments with a comment, gripe, SOS, or maybe a helpful method you could offer other yogadorks in practice. For instance, maybe you could ask yourself, What Would Guruji Do? We could all use some tips!
Oh, yeah…and you could win prizes! Because what’s consciousness and meditation without a reward at the end? Kidding, but it sure doesn’t hurt to know you could win a Manduka MatWare® Mat Sleeve or WWGD tshirt just by being a little more mindful.
STOP, MEDITATE & LISTEN:
- Focus on the PAUSE for the next 365 hours (yes, free pass for the time you’re asleep)
- Over the course of the next 2 weeks, share your experience in a few words, a sonnet, a blog entry, whatever you feel in the comments below. Post every day if you like, but keep it under ONE profile to be fair.
- Read the other comments and find inspiration from the cybersangha.
Two winners will be chosen at random to win 1 of 2 prizes, courtesy of Manduka, and tee from YD, and announced cyber Monday November 29th.
WHY 365? We were inspired by Manduka’s #practice 365 contest – they’re giving away a free year of yoga! Plus other yoga goodies. Enter Now because you only have until Friday 11/12!
UPDATE! WINNERS! Congrats to Rachel as the winner of the Manduka Mat Sleeve and Pam who wins the WWGD tshirt!
