Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present and alive, body and mind united. Mindfulness is the energy that helps us to know what is going on in the present moment.

Class One

Lesson Content

Take
NoteS!

Using the embedded, super nifty notetaker tool (the black box in the right lower corner labelled Take Notes) you can take notes without needing to open a notebook or a separate document. As you progress, lesson to lesson, your notes will cumulate into one handy-dandy document. Everything you need is right here, and enjoy utilizing these helpful tools!   

Morning Pages: Journaling Exercise

Writing is a wonderful practice to help us integrate our thoughts and feelings into useful medicine and stimulate our creative energy. Author Julia Cameron talks about a practice she calls "Morning Pages", which is essentially 3 pages about whatever is on your mind.

Throughout this course we will give you different prompts to inspire your journaling. On the Day 1 we'll be exploring a practice for the energy of the "East", the Wood Element, the Liver and Gallbladder Organs and energy of inspiration. For the first day, please use the follow writing prompt:
"What is my inspiration for taking the Art of Rest Course and learning these skills for myself? For others?"
Write 3 pages freely, and unedited.

Props and Equipment

Some of you have special yoga practice props at home which will be helpful but the course is designed for you to be able to use regular household things like pillows and blankets from your home. It will be helpful but not mandatory to have:

Shad Qudsi

Shad Qudsi has over 13 years experience in organic and commercial gardening and farming. He is certified in Permaculture Design and has over 3 years experience in permaculture design consulting. After graduating from Johns Hopkins University with a double major in Applied Math and Psychology, Shad and his wife, Colleen, moved to Central America with only vague goals of farming at some point in the near future. In January of 2010, Shad and his wife bought and moved onto a very small farm located in the traditional Mayan village of Tzununa, which on the north shore of Lake Atitlan, in Guatemala. The farm developed into Atitlan Organics and now mainly focuses on greens and chickens, a large edible and useful plant nursery, a food forest, and training and education.  Shad is an enthusiastic teacher who truly believes in the work he is doing. Human resiliency cannot be erased from the landscape and now, it is coming back with a loving grace.
