I am sleeping better and find that I am simply enjoying what I am doing, when I am doing it, wherever I am doing it. I’m also noticing my feelings more and the interesting effect they have on my thoughts and vice versa. It’s fascinating!
I’ve been meaning to write to you to thank you. My partner and I have maintained a consistent practice ever since camp ended. We miss a day every once in a while, but always get back to meditating. I’ve also stacked a gratitude journaling habit on top, and I really believe that both are improving my happiness and tranquility.
Much better control of my impulses/addictions. Much greater awareness of what is actually happening in the moment. Didn’t realize how much time I spent in my head ignoring what was literally right in front of me.
Huge differences! I can’t believe how much can be gained in such a short time. I feel calmer and more in control of my emotions. I can find joy at some point, each and every day no matter how mundane the day seems. It isn’t always easy to commit to regular daily practice but the benefits are worth the effort. I honestly think it has been a life changing experience!
Camp Calm was the perfect, stress-free way to make meditation a regular daily habit! David’s patience, wisdom and daily direction helped me to develop a skill of mindfulness that has lasted far beyond the 30-day program.
Overall I have experienced a tremendously positive effect on many aspects of my life, most notably the improved ability to notice worried/stressful thought patterns, their effect on my body and mood, and increased ability to push those thought cycles out of my life. I’m also feeling less boredom in general and more contentment from moment to moment.
I’ve honestly been floored by the positive difference in my general day to day life experience. I was dubious to begin with, having heard endless proponents of meditation, but never truly believing that such a simple practice could actually have a profound influence on my existence.
My general pace has slowed down a lot! I am able to be more patient with my kids, watching my actions instead of reacting most of the time. Thank you!
Season Seven of Camp Calm will take place in Summer 2018. Sign up to be notified when it’s coming up.
