How to Use this Deck
The idea is simple. On your own or with a partner, you can pick a card to practice for the day or the week.
A therapist can have clients pick a card at the end of the session.
A yoga instructor can hand cards out to students to practice alone or as a group.
You can also design your own personal growth program by committing to a daily practice of a card’s suggestion for a week, a month, or longer, or by sorting out the cards that are most powerful for you.
However you use it, just the willingness to engage the deck will lead to greater mindfulness in your life!
