What our ambassadors are saying
You can’t underestimate the power of reflection. To freeze-frame life, step back and reassess it. Reflection was the centrepiece of all the programs I ran with The Reach Foundation for over 100,000 young people, and in my own life it helps me keep my head above water. The key, of course, is delivering it to young people in a way that truly connects with them via a medium they’re exposed to everyday. This is why Smiling Mind works.
I have been using meditation and in particular positive creative visualisation in my work since the late 1990s and it's an incredible tool to help people to build new belief systems in the unconscious mind— and to quiet the inner critic. We have an epidemic of anxiety and depression in our chaotic, modern world, and I am so heartened that Smiling Mind exists to make mindfulness accessible to everyone. This is simple, but powerful stuff.
Mindfulness has been a central part of my everyday life since 2002, and meditation is now a practice my children engage in also. We celebrate so many of its benefits and I’m thrilled to know that Smiling Mind will be making it easier than ever for more young Australians to meditate.
