We are all new at this. We are all collectively rewiring our brains to adapt. This is why tiredness can be part of our day.
To help the rewiring process Live in Beginners Mind.
Attend to your day as a newborn, napping when needed. Rest your body and mind. Utilize meditation, mindfulness practices and good old fashioned exercise with foods that nourish.
Zen it down. We are all on a Learning Curve of Not Knowing.
What have you learned so far?
Join us daily to meditate and “Explore the Silent Spaces of Infinite Mindset” from 6am – 6:30am Mountain. Come explore and witness with colleagues from around the world. It’s become a refuge for many of us.

If you are wanting to be a credentialed coach…come! If you are wanting to do your own personal inner work…come! If you are wanting to create a retreat for yourself, choose a class(es) and delve deep for eight to twelve weeks…come!
Bottomline: This is going to be one of those quarters….I can feel it. Join us…I think you’ll be surprised on what emerges!
From my heart to your heart with a deep bow, Ann-Marie
Mom had 2020 vision. On high desert hikes she was the one who found the arrowheads and pottery shards.
“How do you always find them?” I asked peering through my prescription sunglasses.
“I know they are there. I just relax, watch the ground and know I will find at least one,” she would say confidently. This was her belief system.
To meet our 2020 goals we must have 2020 vision. •The clarity to see what is in front of us. •The determination to see different points of view. •The trust to be expansive with perceptive intuition. •The resilience to see what at first cannot be seen. •The perseverence to continue focusing. •The courage to relax and change glasses!
A mindful practice for 2020 Vision and Beliefs: •Write down your goals for 2020. •Choose the one most important to you. •What is your personal belief system regarding this goal and its’ attainment? •With Beginners Mind create beliefs that work for you, not against you. •Let your 2020 vision and belief system collaborate. •Do the necessary action steps with trust and relaxation. •With fresh eyes watch the manifestation.
May 2020 bring you the blessings that have always been in front of you…but you just weren’t able to see them!
If you’re procrastinating ~yet it needs to get done…
•Close your eyes tight and then open ’em wide •Breathe in deeper than deep and exhale more than ever •Click your heels three times •Hold on to your hat (’cause you’re goin’ places!) •Leap over the over-thinking of procrastination •Now…Do it-whatever it is! Quickly, solidly and with gusto! •What are you aware of?
Take 30 seconds and laugh. Laugh strong. Laugh loud. Laugh for no other reason except to laugh.
After 30 seconds go into silence and notice what arises. (Do this now before you read on!)
Laughing meditation alters the dopamine and serotonin levels in our bodies resulting in a decrease in depression, stress and anxiety.
In other words: Aliveness vibrates. Attitudes shift. Joy seeps in. Beginners Mind reigns. Life becomes vibrant.
WARNING! Watch out for the Inner Critic! When we are not feeling up to snuff we will put off Laughing Meditation. This is only an excuse from IC telling us we need to suffer through whatever we are experiencing first.
Not so! Many meditation practitioners choose to do Laughing Meditation in the midst of suffering. For instance, joining together in Laughing Meditation when our Beloved is dying is one of the highest moments for all…especially the Beloved who is passing.
