Seeds of Mindfulness @Home: Mindfulness Jar

Mindfulness is a practice; and even though you don’t always see it, the experience will ripple forever. We all need a little pause now and then and so, we invite you to nurture mindfulness with us and your family – at home.

Excerpt from “Planting Seeds” by Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village Community

What you’ll need from Home:

Water

More Glitter or food coloring and possibly some clear dish soap

sharpies, paints, stickers to decorate your jar with mindful intentions

HOW TO – Make a mindful jar at home

Step 1: Add all the glitter glue (1-2 oz) to the jar or (6-8 oz) water bottle.

Step 2: Fill with warm water and mix/shake to get the glue distributed evenly.

Step 3: Add more glitter or food coloring if you’d like!

Step 4: Add your mindful intentions with your name or decorate your jar/bottle if you’d like.

You can also do this with clear glue and add a drop of food coloring and shake or two of glitter. If the glitter doesn’t settle so easily, dilute with a little more water.

“You cannot transmit wisdom and insight to another person. The seed is already there. A good teacher touches the seed, allowing it to wake up, to sprout, and to grow.” -Thich Nhat Hanh
