Mindset & Mindfulness, Time Management

More Mindful, Less Muddle

Update: this event has finished. Catch the replay here.

Registration is now open for my session at Stanford University’s free Contemplation by Design Summit on Saturday November 3, 2018. I’ll be presenting More Mindful, Less Muddle, offering a five step approach to declutter your internal and external life. It’s free, but you need to register.

However, if you can’t make it due to geography or timing, the session is being videoed so I’ll share the link when I have it.

Contemplation by Design Summit


It’s true that outer order supports inner calm, and equally, a mindful approach can help you declutter your home or office. In my workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Practical steps to follow when embarking on an organizing project;
  • Common mistakes to avoid;
  • Strategies to call upon when letting go of possessions is challenging.

You’ll leave with your own plan to declutter a space which is important to you.

Now in its 5th year, the free summit runs from October 30 – November 8, 2018 and offers an incredible selection of events, including guided meditations, creation of a sand mandala, contemplative computing, compassion & self care… and lots more. Participants will have the opportunity to take a break from their high-level output of productivity and innovation, in order to rest and renew the mind-body-spirit. This year’s keynote speaker is Roshi Joan Halifax, who will explore five psychological territories called Edge States: altruism, empathy, integrity, respect, and engagement. I’m also looking forward to hearing from Dr. Alex Pang, who wrote Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less, and Phyllis Stewart Pires who’ll discuss WorkLife Integration.

If you can be in Northern California during this event, I warmly recommend it.

All sessions are free but typically sell out, so you need to register. See the full schedule and sign up for the activities which interest you here.

    Now I’ve got my fingers crossed for a California trip in November, Pauline! I’d love to attend in person, but if not I’ll look forward to the video. I’d really be interested to hear your talk on this important subject as I’m making my way through a lot of sentimental clutter at the moment!
