Mindful Expat Episode 7: Diving Deeper into Mindfulness & Balancing Acceptance with Change

What you’ll hear in this episode:

• A discussion of the different attitudes of mindfulness — beginner’s mind, non-judgment, acknowledgment, non-striving, letting be, self-reliance, and self-compassion.
• That acceptance and commitment to change and growth are not in opposition to one another and can, in fact, coexist.
• About my plans to attend the FIGT conference next week!
• A sneak peek at what’s coming up in next week’s episode.

Resources mentioned in this episode:

• I mentioned the book, A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, by Bob Stahl & Elisha Goldstein, which is a great resource for more information about these attitudes of mindfulness.
• I also mentioned some website that have free audio-guided exercises for practicing mindfulness. There are a lot of such websites out there, but I’ve compiled a list of some of the ones that I like on this page of my website.
• I also mentioned the organization Families in Global Transitions (FIGT), whose conference I will be attending next week. FIGT is a great organization to check out and consider joining if you are living abroad or if you work with people who live abroad.
