Welcome to Tenshin

Tenshin is your personal supply of meditation and mindfulness knowledge that fist pumps all the aspects of yourself that you’re struggling with.  So you can live a life of strength, calm and readiness by not really being…well, whatever the hell “mindful” people are supposed to be.

Meditate.  Live Mindfully.  Be An Individual.

End the suffering of force-fitting mindfulness principles into your life by truly experiencing and honoring your invaluable inner struggles.  It’s not about cleaning out your “unmindful” characteristics, it’s about fitting together all the pieces of the real you.  

This is mindful living the right way – integrating the spastic, raw and utterly absurd qualities that make you awesome.  If you have a self-sabotaging mind and live in a chaotic reality, congratulations, you’re honest and self-aware enough to actually acknowledge it.  Now, let’s take things further: let’s learn how to take all the contradictions, inconsistencies and discouraging beliefs that show up in your thinking and use them to your advantage.

Mindfulness Education That Wants Nothing From You

Inspiring…in real ways.  Dynamic, highly-applicable and free mindfulness knowledge that everyone else seems to be figuring out ways to charge for.  We’ll be there to help make the process of fully “doing you” a truly awesome one.

The Briefings

You don’t need to find a quiet room in your house or (even harder) a quiet place in your mind.  These are daily 1-2 minute mindfulness hacks to aim at your busy day. Use them. Screw them up.  And realize how much screwing it up is actually crushing it. Listen on Instagram and Amazon Alexa as a Flash Briefing.

The Podcast

Each week, David and Stefan talk about how to apply meditation and mindfulness principles to the things that actually matter in your life. We address all the turbulence that you might face along the way and provide techniques and principles to face your challenges with strength, skill and [insert]. And, most importantly, how to be more of your fierce warrior self, rather than some mock up of a “calm” person that people think they need to be.

How To Be Mindful, The Tenshin Way.

Inspiring…in real ways.  Dynamic, highly-applicable and free mindfulness knowledge that everyone else seems to be figuring out ways to charge for.  We’ll be there to help make the process of fully “doing you” a truly awesome one.

Step 1 : Don’t be.

Mindfulness doesn’t accomplish anything…you do.  

Claim mindfulness as a tool, not an identity.  

We believe being mindful means not “being” anything but yourself.  

No costume of moods, temperaments, behaviors, and lifestyles to put on.  

It’s not persona, a behavior, a lifestyle.  

You don’t need to be anything but appreciative of who you are and what you’re truly capable of.

Step 2: Screw it up.

Sure mindfulness improves your experience of life and your success in everything you do.  

But first you need to practice it, try to apply it…and screw it up.  

And then get frustrated and start listing the characteristics you lack to live a calm, happy and fulfilled life.  

This is a powerful place to be.  

It’s a laboratory of self-understanding.  

This is where we come in: to help you master the art of being a work-in-progress.  

Because we’ve been through all that.  

And we’re still going through it.  In process.  Forever. 

Step 3: See how you’re not actually screwing it up.

Have a perfectly mindful life by embracing the challenges of living it.  

Make happiness, flow and insight spring from delusion and stagnation.  

Move backwards, repeat mistakes, fall from grace and channel it all into fuel for your personal growth.

The mindful path is one of embracing the slippery nature of the journey and the inner potential that stumbling through it can reveal.

Discover how mindfulness is not even about how well you’re doing it, but how well you’re working with what’s actually happening.
