Meditation is all about the pursuit of nothingness. It’s like the ultimate rest. It’s better than the best sleep you’ve ever had. It’s a quieting of the mind. It sharpens everything, especially your appreciation of your surroundings. It keeps life fresh.
Meditation has been our favorite way to stay calm, focused and most importantly, present. What happens when meditation and giving back come together? Mindful in May: a one month, global, online meditation challenge that brings the benefits of meditation together with an opportunity to contribute to a global cause.
The idea is that while you learn to meditate and be mindful (meditations will be delivered straight to your inbox after you sign up for the challenge), your donation and fundraising will ripple across the world to help improve the lives of the one in nine people on the planet who live without access to clean, safe drinking water.
By donating or fundraising just $35, you can change one life forever through giving the gift of clean water.
