Mindfulness is the rage. And with good reason because it’s a way of acute self-awareness without judgement. This equanimous and objective self-attention gives you mental and emotional balance, and thus better decision-making and more emotional intelligence – all of which makes you more skillful in relationships and in navigating your life amidst change, uncertainty, and stress.
In fact, mindfulness is an imperative 21st century quality. However, I first experienced mindfulness in Buddhist Vipassana meditation courses in the early 1970’s in India. I knew this technique was integral to my path of personal and professional transformation, but little did I know then how critical mindfulness is now for the pressure cooker life we now lead.
I kept up my meditation practice, but unknowingly stumbled upon an amazing mindfulness tool and practice called “Voyager.” Voyager is a visually rich, multi-cultural, archetypal symbolic set of cards originally created by myself and artist, Ken Knutson, in 1985 as a tarot deck. Since then, Voyager has evolved into a mindfulness medium as well as growth practice, wholistic psychology and contemporary road map of life. Picking the Cards, we see ourselves through their symbolic mirroring and our intuition is catalyzed to give us insight and direction.
We become mindful of the extraordinary magnitude of our being through the archetypes as well as our everyday mental, emotional, physical and spiritual states. We gain an objective mindful like view of ourselves as we see by the Cards that lie before us. Because of our curiosity and the surprise and synchronicity of our cards, we are pulled to use them, and often as well as because it’s fun!
Voyager is mindfulness with a kick, however, because a practitioner over time internalizes this psychological map. Not only do you become vastly more aware of your personal and transpersonal depth and breadth, but you become the Cards. It’s this mindfulness practice that transforms a person into a more whole and healthy person.
