Nalu | 28-day mind-the-flow journey

Build continuity into any practice

Get support in a global community

Explore your own mind and flow

Follow our protagonist, Nalu*, as they learn how to mind the flow and then practice what we learn for a few minutes each day.

You’ll feel supported and at ease if you are new to mindfulness or have a practice. Our open @2:50 community has welcomed people from all walks of life and across the world more than 2500 times. Ten minutes a day for 28 days helps us build our insight practices, learn better how to “mind our flow,” and live more peace.

When you join for any day or all 28, you can contribute to our collective mood board with one-click visualizations or polls. After Nalu completes, @2:50 creates and shares digital art and artifacts with you from the mood board entries to remember Nalu and their intention to ‘mind the flow.’

Registration is not required. 🙂 Free 10-minute events open daily from our home page.

Unlike a “mindfulness challenge,” Nalu aims for continuity of practice supported by ourselves and each other. We frame our journey as cooperation and collaboration, in contrast to competition.

*Nalu is Hawaiian for wave. Also, mindful observation.** Science and tradition view matter and energy as made fundamentally of vibrations or waves. As such, our lived experience comes in flow.

**We use the Hawaiian ‘Nalu’ to honor indigenous wisdom everywhere and elude inferences that arise from words in the world’s principal languages.

On Sunday, 10 March, Atlantica@2:50 celebrates four years (1460 days) of consecutive ten-minute daily mindful practice in the EDT time zone. Everyone is welcome to join us at 2:45 pm EDT, enjoy the quiet from 2:50 to 3:00 pm, and stick around at 3:00 for a preview of the 28 day journey, and for a dance party! No registration is required. Just mark your calendar and come back to the homepage for the link.

For the first week of Nalu’s journey we explore the breath and how observing the breathing can serve as a valuable tool in minding the flow.

In the second week we join Nalu in exploring body observation to help us better connect with the here and now through our direct experience. We’ll celebrate the equinox on 20 March.

In the third week, we join Nalu in exploring the flow of our intentions over time. We access a few simple intention- and attention-setting practices that can be used everywhere.

We complete our journey with Nalu coming back to the source and recognizing gratitude and the role it can play in the flow of our lives. Nalu | Mind the flow concludes at 3:00 pm EDT on 7 April. Directly following, we will host our monthly First Sunday. Mindful Boston’s Gena Bean guides us on a meditation from the One Quote Book Club from 3:00-3:30. We relax and unwind afterward.
