Week 4 Assignment-Raisin Meditation
This week for your assignment you will do the Raisin Meditation
for 3 days in a row. Ideally you will do it in the morning to start your day in a mindful way that can carry on throughout the rest of the day. If that is not possible find a time that you can concentrate with no distractions and really take the time to complete the exercise. After you have done it for 3 days in a row, I want you to cut and paste the following questions to answer and upload as a document (Word, etc.) or in the text box.
If you don’t like raisins (or don’t have any), don’t worry any food will do.
1,Did you use a raisin or something else?
2,What, if anything, surprised you about the experience?
3,What did you notice with the raisin (or whatever food you chose) in terms of sight, touch, sound, smell, and taste?
4,Did you notice anything different the second and third day? Did you feel more mindful and in tune with your senses the more you practiced mindfulness?
5,Did you notice yourself being more mindful in the rest of your day after practicing this meditation? What differences did you notice or why do you think you did not see any differences?
6,What is one tip for yourself that you are going to take from this experience to apply being more mindful in the future?
