A Way Cool Mindfulness Aid: Nick Chang's Online Meditation Bell

Med bell In the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh's communities, a random bell sounds during the day.

When you hear the bell you are invited to pause, take a breath and reconnect with the Here and Now.

Many years ago I got inspired by this practice and set my digital wrist watch to go off every half hour.  To be honest, much of the time I was annoyed, but other times it served as a powerful moment of waking up out of whatever trance I was in.

My friend Nick Chang has designed a website that provides this service for you.  You can choose your bell, how often it sounds and whether or not you'd like it at random intervals.

You can access the meditation bell here.

Thanks, Nick!  Awesome!
