It brings to mind a peaceful person sitting cross-legged, hands folded in the lap or fingers and thumb touching while resting on the knees. You can almost hear monks chanting and a Tibetan singing bowl in the background.

What actually happens when a lot of us attempt to meditate? The kids walk in. The dog scratches at the door. The text tone goes off on your phone. Grrr….

Building a practice—whether it be a yoga practice, an exercise regimen, a healthier diet or a mediation practice takes work. But anyone can start with just a few minutes a day.

Starting March 20th, we will be doing a Happiness Meditation Challenge together. We will send out daily emails with tips and suggestions along with support. Interested? Have you always wanted to commit to a practice? Are you a regular meditator and just want to be a part of this?

Sign up below and join us and others in our Tattooed Buddha Community! Just 7 days…10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night.

The Tattooed Buddha

The Tattooed Buddha was founded by Buddhist author Ty Phillips and Dana Gornall. What started out as a showcase for Ty's writing, quickly turned into collaboration with creative writer, Dana Gornall and the home for sharing the voices of friends and colleagues in the writing community. The Tattooed Buddha strives to be a noncompetitive, open space for the author’s authentic voice. So while not necessarily Buddhist, we are offering a dialogue that is aware and awake to the reality of our present day to day, tackling issues of community, environment, and compassionate living.
