About me

Description

I meditate since 2014 and I am an MBSR, mindfulness, and meditation teacher and engineer involved in the happiness.com project, for example, taking care of the https://academy.happiness.com/courses/online-mindful-based-stress-reduction course.

My mission is to support others in discovering their happiness or, even more importantly, handling the ups and downs of life more gracefully. Something I work on myself each day again and again with varying results but an overall positive trend. ;-)

On happiness.com, I can put into action what I've learned through mindfulness and meditation, together with what I learned as a media engineer.

Other than that, friends and family, the village community, gardening, and art projects play important roles in my life too as they keep me connected and grounded.

Week 2 formal practice: Sitting Meditation

I am glad you brought that up. I experienced that too, but didn't quite get a grip on it until I read your post. Like someone switched the light on. 🙂

MBSR - general and technical questions

Hello @dawnrobertson,
I read altered traits too and the engineer in me really appreciates the scientific approach and how they go into detail really diving into the quality of the studies and the difficulties studying something like meditation.
Thank you for bringing up the lack of BIPOC teachers in this course. I will mention that to Dave Potter who curates the course as we are not directly influencing the content.
However as we are always looking for more teachers and courses for the Read more… happiness academy we actively try to encourage diversity. So far the results aren't that good as we didn't have the necessary strong focus from the start, but we are on it!

MBSR - general and technical questions

@Devashish and @Temjen Did you check my answer here in this topic from the 24th of February? There you find a screenshot where I explain a rather common problem with the two scrollbars that appear sometimes and about which we can't do anything. Let me know it that was it. 🙂

Week 1 formal practice: Body Scan

Hello Mike, I am happy to hear about your journey with the bodyscan. For me the bodyscan also leads to a wide range of experiences. 😄
Please feel free to share guided meditation you find beneficial on our resources page.

How stressed are you at work?

Thank you, @Kolzo for your input. Yes, there are different factors at work and here's a little spoiler - we are working on several more questionnaires to look at the issue from different angles. 🙂
There are different types of stress. Usually, we decide between acute and chronic stress. Acute stress can even be healthy as it gives our organism a jump-start now and then, but if it turns into chronic stress, the stress hormones can cause wear and tear. Even chronic stress might not necessarily be Read more… that harmful. For me, the distinction is in the agency I have on the matter. The stressful act of finishing an exciting project over several months with little time versus a few days of "having to function on someone else's terms" makes a huuuuge difference - at least for me.
I remember I read a study - I think it was mentioned in the edX course "science of happiness" - regarding "purpose". The results suggested something like that: people could be unhappier than others, but if they had a higher level of purpose, their overall perceived life satisfaction was higher. This connection makes a lot of sense if I reflect at my own experience.
I guess the next question is whether the "pleasant" stress also releases less long term damaging hormones and/ or if people are easily able to switch into the relax and recover mode.
