How it works:
Mindfulness Challenge works like a walkathon or bikeathon - you participate in a challenge and ask people to sponsor you. In this case it's a 4-hour meditate-athon. We’ll provide you with the latest fundraising tools and ideas to make it easy to reach your fundraising goal. We ask that when you register, you set a fundraising goal of at least $100.
Mindfully eating a snack is part of the program, but please eat before the event. We will provide apples and Made-Good granola bars and squares that are free of dairy, eggs, gluten, and nuts. If you like, please feel free to bring your own ready-to-eat snack.
What to Bring
- We invite you to practice kindness by choosing a snack that does not harm animals or the planet.
For those intending to bring a zabuton (thick mat for under the sitting cushion), please consider using your yoga mat instead - so you don't have to move the zabuton to the side for some activities. The sits won't be too long. However, if you need a zabuton to sit comfortably, that's no problem.
- Yoga mat - Please bring your own if you can. There will be a few available at Adi Shesha
- Sitting Cushion / Chair - If you want a sitting cushion, please bring your own. There will be a few bolsters available. If you want to sit in a chair, we will provide one.
- Water bottle
- Comfortable clothing suitable for sitting or gentle yoga
- Blanket or sweater in case you get cold
- Cash or cheques sponsors gave you
