How selective are you when it comes to the images that appear in front of your eyes, sounds that you hear, words that you use? What we feed to our senses affects our perceptions, emotions, and vibrations. We don’t always have a choice of blocking negative signals, and there is no need to, as long as we have tools to counterbalance the undesirable effects with strong positive messages that help us stay centered, peaceful, and aware. Visualizations, vision boards, meditation, affirmations are all helpful techniques to bring balance and clarity to our hectic lives.
Yesterday, I created a brief video of positive affirmations. I had lots of fun doing it and hope you enjoy it too. Here it is...
In this post last year, I wrote about Pursue the Passion and their project "to interview passionate professionals about their career paths." They recently interviewed attorney Lonnie Williams Jr. about his dream and his path to become a prominent lawyer in Arizona and "a dispute resolver," as he sees himself. You can read his inspirational story here and watch the video.
Mindfulness meditation can provide a practical tool for busy legal professionals to quiet the mind, enhance clarity and professional effectiveness, and restore a more peaceful balance to their lives. This program will include meditation instruction and practice, and will explore the interplay between contemplative and legal practices and the role meditation can play in the professional and personal lives of lawyers, judges, law professors, law students, and other legal professionals. There will be periods of silent meditation, lectures, and group discussions concerning skills training and the ethical practice of law.
The Center for Contemplative in Society has offered retreats for legal professionals for ten years, offering annual retreats in California since 2004. We are pleased to return to the East Coast to present this special program.
This retreat is co-sponsored by the City University of New York School of Law.
