Mind + Body : Introduction Overview

Connecting the Mind, Body & Soul 

A beginner’s guide to understanding the self, connecting to your body and deepening your awareness both on and off the mat.

Welcome to this 7 day Connecting the Mind, Body & Soul Program focusing on helping you to connect your mind, body and soul on a deeper and more authentic level. The aim of this program is to help you arrive at a more centered, joyful, loving and peaceful version of you.

 

Join Johnson Chong, the award-winning and best-selling author of Sage Sapien: From Karma to Dharma on this transformational journey. Each of the 7 days carry a different theme designed to help you delve deeper into you, to get out of your head and into your heart. The intention really is to help you bring awareness to how intrinsically connected every aspect of our being is and how each story, trigger and wound we carry affects how we show up both on and off the mat.  We offer you an easy to follow foundational course where you’ll learn practical skills that will not only upgrade your movement practice, but also upgrade your life.

 

Each day there will be a short intro video that will offer you a new perspective and a lesson for you to integrate. Then, you’ll have a 10-15 min meditation experience to practice so that you can solidify the lesson into your mind, body and heart. After each meditation, there will be a short journaling prompt for you to write down what you’ve experienced. These are optional to do, but remember that the more time you put in for yourself, the more value you will find out of the programme.

Mind + Body : Intro + Practice 3

How to practice non-attachment and surrendering to the present moment

Einstein said “the most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or a hostile universe.” What he was talking about was really about surrendering to a force that is much greater than you. If you are constantly living in a state where you feel the world is against you, you will try to control everything in your life in an unsustainable and unhealthy way. In today’s discussion, we talk about the power of surrender and begin the journey of learning how to practice non-attachment.

Mind + Body: Intro + Practice 5

How to love yourself fully by accepting the hidden parts of yourself

Chronic self-loathing and self-punishing behaviours are detrimental to your physical, mental and emotional health. Every person has shadows that they like to keep in the closet. It is up to each person to decide how much they would like to divulge to the public. However, even if those shadows are kept hidden, we still at the very least, need to acknowledge them, otherwise we will never truly feel at home in our own skin. In today’s talk, we investigate what it truly means to accept your whole self.

How to release the lack-based beliefs to adopt an abundance based mindset

Did you know that physical issues surrounding your pelvis might be energetically associated with your ability to lack-based beliefs to invite abundance into your life? A lack-based belief, also known as a scarcity mindset is when you think that you will never have enough; not enough time, not enough money, love, success, etc. There is an insatiable hunger that drives you to race towards an imaginary finish line, and this pressure is not healthy over time. In today’s discussion, you are invited to tap into your relationship with your story of ‘enough-ness’. Tune in and unblock all that is keeping you from stepping fully into a truly abundance mindset.

Mind + Body : Intro + Practice 7

The most important practice to integrate as a daily ritual: how to internalize and feel gratitude. 

Many studies have researched how gratitude changes the brain. The University of Berkeley showed that those who wrote gratitude letters reported better mental health 4-12 weeks after their writing exercise ended as opposed to those that didn’t. They found that practicing gratitude disentangled participants from negative emotional states. When you are looking for the silver lining of an experience that seems awful at first, you are entraining the brain to focus on the benefits. Today, we are diving into the felt experience of gratitude. Gratitude is much more than a thought, it is a vibrational experience felt deep within your mind, body and heart.

 

Practice:

Now that you’ve completed the practice. Here are some optional journaling prompts to help you reflect and go a little deeper. In your journal, please contemplate and write about the following:

1) What was the experience of gratitude like in your body? Was it warm? cool? electrical? etc. Was it predominantly in one region of the body more than another? (It’s important to note it, so that you can practice duplicating this feeling over and over again).

2) Write down a list of what you were visualizing gratitude for.

3) What challenging situations were you able to find gratitude for?

4) Are there any situations that you are currently working on developing gratitude for? If so, write them down, and practice Day 7 again on a different day when you’re ready.
