Hello Friends (FREE ebook TODAY & TOMORROW)!
I'm excited to be offering the Kindle ebook edition of my memoir, "The Mindfulness Diaries: How I Survived My First Nine-Day Silent Meditation Retreat" FREE to friends and supporters TODAY (Monday, Feb 24th) and TOMORROW (Tuesday, Feb 25th).
The book came to "be" after returning from my first 9-day silent meditation retreat this past May. As I was reintegrating back into my life in Los Angeles, I felt moved to journal about my struggle to maintain my sense of compassion during the retreat (for both myself and others). And, while I was writing about my experiences, I felt a palpable and unexpected sense of purpose—so strong, in fact, that I was, literally, struck by sudden tears of gratitude and joy when I realized that I wasn't just writing about my experiences for me…. I was writing about them to share with others.
In 20+ years of journal writing, I'd never experienced anything quite like that moment….
Here's a short blurb:
The Mindfulness Diaries: How I Survived My First Nine-Day Silent Meditation Retreat
Jennifer Howd had been building a mindfulness practice for two and a half years before taking on the challenge of her first nine-day silent meditation retreat. In this debut memoir in “The Mindfulness Diaries” series, she chronicles the humorous—and often harrowing—adventures of the dueling inner voices that emerge in the silence: one intent on focusing on the seemingly negative aspects of her experiences, and the other on helping her see the positivity that can come from them. Illuminating for those who are new to mindfulness and resonant for those with established practices, The Mindfulness Diaries: How I Survived My First Nine-Day Silent Meditation Retreat is a vulnerable, touching, playful peek behind the curtain into the mind of a woman learning how to befriend herself.
