Give me 4 weeks this August 2021, I'll give you changes for life!

Welcome to the Mindful in May Encore.

The one month Mindful in May program normally runs once a year in May. However, this year, due to the incredible benefits experienced by thousands around the world, we wanted to offer it... one more time!

So, we're doing it all over again starting this Sunday 1st August, 2021.

Over one month this August, you'll learn how to meditate with the world's best teachers and be supported by an interactive global community.

Be fascinated and transformed by teachings from the world's best teachers and scientists, who share cutting edge science backed tools to improve all areas of your life.

This is your opportunity to make meditation a habit, and to learn life hacks you can apply immediately to improve your relationships, build greater flourishing and reach your fullest potential.

As an online fundraising event, you'll have the chance to transform the lives of those living in poverty through your donation to our charity partner, bringing access to life's most basic need, clean water, to those who need it most.

What are you waiting for? Sign up for the Mindful in May Encore now!

Joining Mindful in May for me has felt like fate, something that was meant to happen. It came at a time in my life when I was at a crossroads...

It came at a time in my life when I was at a crossroads, struggling with the loss of my Mum who I had cared for at home for 16 years while also facing retirement at the end of a life long nursing career. It caused me to reflect on my life, to realise that most of my life has been caring for others. I have never really thought about self-care prior to this program but these interviews and meditation have bought an awareness of the value of self-care to myself and ultimately to others. It has bought calmness to my life and helped me deal the the constant chatter in my head, much of which was negative. Elise, I can not thank you enough for if not saving my life then at least my sanity. Your passion for this program is wonderful and you and the people you have interviewed are inspirational. Finished this wonderful month of May with a memory walk for our Mum to raise money for dementia awareness and research. Thank you so much Elise. 💜💜

“Being guided through mindful in may to meditate for ten minutes is very doable in this busy life and you still get the benefits…”

I think Mindful in May is fabulous! Anything that promotes peace of mind and benefits people who are in need at the same time is a brilliant idea. I am prone to shocking anxiety and meditation has really helped with that. I just passed my 300 day mark since I started meditating regularly with Mindful in May. That really kick started it for me — consistency has always been my problem. Being guided through Mindful in May to meditate for ten minutes is very doable in this busy life and you still get the benefits

“I’m so loving all this respectful and supportive interaction!”

Helps me have hope for the world and that we really can “be the change we want to see”. You are all so honest and inspirational and helps me to know that many of my inner challenges are shared or understood.

- Julia W. (Mindful in May 2021

“This mindfulness and meditation practice has been the backbone of my recovery and wisdom and community, the flesh on the bones...”

So thank you, each of you for being this community and this experience and thank you Elise, you inspire me endlessly. As Sharon Salzberg so beautifully teaches....Transformation occurs when we let it go and begin again.

Hari Om you mob 🙏🌻🦋

“HOLY DEEPNESS!!! Darn, I think I could watch these interviews a billion times over as the messages constantly brought me home...”

Once again HOLY DEEPNESS!!! I'm going to do a meditation now - the “looking 20 years ahead” one. I swear it feels like if I go any deeper I'm going to implode . May you all be well.

- Chaieomie (Mindful in May 2021)

“By bringing mindfulness into my daily routine, I have seen significant improvements in my overall wellbeing”

I confess I was a cynic about meditation and mindfulness. But after my husband died suddenly in 2014, and I was confronted with night after night of terrible insomnia, when a friend suggested I give mindful in may a go I thought “what have I got to lose in committing 10 minutes a day to something?” and the charitable element of the project meant that someone out there had something very big to gain! What I found was that far from losing anything, I gained back not just the capacity to sleep but also an awareness of the extraordinary power in mindfulness and meditation to promote both good physical and mental health. My sleep improved, symptoms of a chronic physical health condition improved and I felt more alert and capable to deal with the craziness of everyday life. Using the Mindful in May’s practical and accessible programming provided me with not just a daily mindfulness tool but also an awareness of the scientific research that provides the evidence for it. By bringing mindfulness into my daily routine, I have seen significant improvements in my overall wellbeing.
