Mindful Awareness Reflection Journal Using the first person narrative 1. Acknowledge Describe your experience 2. Intentional Attention Describe what you noticed BREATH: BODY: EMOTIONS: THOUGHTS: 3. Accept Without Judgment Describe judgment; acceptance 4. Action Toward Change Intention/willingness; new perspective 5. Mindful Meditation Experience (Mindful Practice) What did you notice about your meditation experience this week? Here is an example of a MARJ from a painting class.......remember, this can be about anything..... The whole purpose of this assignment is to start getting in the frame of mind that when you encounter a stressor in life, you automatically default to this mindful model to help become responsive vs. reactive. Therefore, this is done weekly with that goal in mind......the chapters that you read can be an inspiration for your journal but honestly, you can apply your weekly journal to ANY mindful experience you choose to participate in, it doesn't have to be directly linked to the chapter ......examples of what you may journal about: breathing, eating, cooking, walking, exercising, gardening, journaling, painting etc...... Mindful Awareness Reflection Journal 1. Acknowledge Describe your experience I am sitting before a blank canvas with a palette of paint colors directly in front of me and a large and small paint brush to my right. I am surrounded by both friends and strangers - this is a painting class where you can drink wine and socialize while you paint. There is a stage in front of me with the instructor and her blank canvas (a camera magnifies it to a larger screen so that all of the patrons can see) and a picture of what we will be painting is located above her canvas (an impressionist painting of a park in Paris at night) 2. Intentional Attention Describe what you noticed BREATH: My breath is rapid because I am both excited and talking to all of my friends.....as well as nervous....I am NOT artistic! BODY: I am sitting on a stool with my legs hooked around the legs of the chair. My body is relaxed, I am sitting up straight and my arms are resting on the counter in front of me. The instructor is in front of me so my neck feels comfortable, not twisted or at an awkward angle EMOTIONS: I am very happy to be with friends but also excited and nervous, I have never done this before so I am definitely stepping outside my comfort zone THOUGHTS: One of my good friends right next to me is a graphic artist so I'm feeling at a distinct disadvantage in the art department, I am also with people I don't know so I am thinking about what they might think of my work 3. Accept Without Judgment Describe judgment; acceptance As we progress through the painting (this is a 3 hour class) I at first am looking at my friend's painting (the graphic artist - it's really good) and the woman next to me trying not to compare. I start to judge my initial lines on the canvas (they look pretty subpar compared to the other two) but accept what I am doing because I know that I am doing the best that I can. As we progress and the colors are added, I look less and less at their paintings and focus on mine, completely engrossed in the colors and patterns and in the process, letting go of critical judgment and truly enjoying the experience itself. 4. Choose how you show up for your experience Intention/willingness; new perspective I chose to show up to an experience that I wasn't comfortable with but that truly affected me in a positive way. I realized by the end of the evening when I had completed my painting that it was just as beautiful as everyone else's and that the experience wasn't about what the final project was (the completed painting) but more about the process, the interaction with friends and the creative outlet to lose yourself in the experience. This experience has given me a new intention to seek out experiences that I have not done before, even if they are a little uncomfortable because it allows me to find a new part of who I am. I am proud to say that my painting is now hanging above my desk to remind me of the importance of showing up without judgment and paying attention to both my senses and myself. 5. Mindful Meditation Experience (Mindful Practice) What did you notice about your meditation experience this week? I noticed that I tend to not schedule in my meditation practice the way that I need to......there always seems to be something else I need to do. I also become very distracted because when I do sit down to breath, there is a distraction from one of my kids or my husband. Because of this, I realize that I need to either get up before the family or wait until the kids are in bed, then take time for myself to really focus on the meditation. This will be my new goal going forward because when I do manage to take 10 -20 minutes to focus on my breathing - I feel amazing. ...

Mindful Awareness Reflection Journal
Using the first person narrative

1. Acknowledge
Describe your experience

I am at the shallow end of a swimming pool, and the place is noisy with people minding their
own business. My elder brother has a keen eye on me, and one of the pool attendants is
helping fit me into a lifejacket. I almost drowned as a child and this explains why I have been
always wary about swimming. However, I feel ready and I look at the people swimming,
some far much younger than myself and this makes me feel challenged yet elated at the same
time. The pool attendant, who will be my instructor, with the assistance of my brother smiles
and this helps reduce my anxiety. Toda...
