Welcome to the homepage for the book: Riding on the Ferris Wheel of Mindfulness with Grandma: Your Mindfulness Journal
The following text from the spine gives you a brief overview of the concept and content of the book:
After reading, most books are given away, sold or put on the shelf for good. In order for this book not to suffer a similar fate, it was designed to be both a book and a journal. Thus, it can accompany you for a while on your own journey in the ferris wheel of mindfulness and support you in shaping your life mindfully and consciously.
This is not some classic diary with pages to be filled with notes or a book that is meant to change your life just by using it a few minutes a day. It does not follow a path or a certain doctrine of faith, it is not intended to free people from crises, and there are no weekly or monthly goals to be defined.
What you are holding in your hands is a book you can use very flexibly: You can decide for yourself at any time which topic suits you and your life right now.
The entries, which you make in the form of notes, remind you of the paths you have already walked and what you have done at any time thus making them come alive. Reflecting about yourself and others and putting it on paper is what you will memorize and what will lead to permanent change.
If that piques you a little, just click your way through the menu items to find out more about the book.
Since ancient times (approx. 800 BC to 600 AD) notebooks (hypomnema) have been used as a memory aid for things that have been read, thought and heard. They served as guides to life and were a personal summary for self-reflection and an exercise in self-awareness. The notes were reread from time to time to refresh the memory and they provided support for later meditations.
