the re-mindful mission:
exploring, sharing and making accessible the benefits of mindfulness for everyone.
have fun – Finding ways to make every day more fun, purposeful and engaging is a challenging and worthy pursuit.
connectedness leads to good behavior – We believe that connectedness reinforces the golden rule (do unto others as you would have them do to you).
randomness is interesting – Often, the most interesting events in life are the ones that happen by chance.
non-denominational – Re-mindful is not affiliated with any church, political group, spiritual group or the opposite of any of these.
tech is neutral – We recognize that there is a growing concern that technology unfettered may have a corrosive effect on our culture and our development as humans. We hold that technology is a tool and the effect of that tool depends on who uses it and how it is used.
simple actions can have profound effects – Smiling is contagious, then again, so is stress. At some point it all comes down to how we choose to spend our days.
share your smiles – Life is complex and at times downright scary but a smile can remind us of how lucky we are to be on this spinning blue marble.
Stuttering is the inspiration for re-mindful:
Stuttering is a funny thing (on a good day anyway). One of the best ways to manage a stutter is to go into every situation with a bit of attitude. The attitude that works the best for me is: “I am a bad ass (read: expert) stutterer and if you can hold on just second, I will show you just how bad ass a stutterer I can be”. In short, go forth and stutter openly and with pride!
Of course an attitude like that can be tough to muster day after day. This is where the challenges of being a stutterer look a lot like the challenges of every other person. It’s our attitude towards life that can be so profound and yet so hard to remember to use.
Thus re-mindful was born. Enjoy!
