Disney 8-Week Challenge: Week 8 (April 9 - 15)

Welcome to the final week of the 8-Week Challenge!  
This is one more structured week to help you in your journey toward building a daily mindfulness practice. 

We hope that you've learned which practices suit you best and have started developing some good habits around when and where practice happens easiest for you.  We encourage you to go back through any of the guided meditations after this week to support your ongoing practice and we'll share some additional tools to support you in your final capstone webinar next week.


The theme for these last 2 weeks is "Looking Forward," which involves widening your attention toward the future in addition to continuing to build the foundational practices. As always, you'll find this week's daily dedicated and integrated practices below. Enjoy!
