How To Embrace Change And Find Peace Of Mind

find peace of mind

Everything is in a state of change.

Of flux.

And this non-permanence can seem unsettling, scary even.

And that’s natural, we all crave some degree of certainty.

But the more we cling to the allusion of certainty and resist the reality of constant change, the harder it is to find peace of mind.

Stania Melnychenko, a Munich based filmmaker and John Doan, a martial arts, yoga and meditation practitioner have made a short video to help you let go and find peace.

It is called “Touching Quietude” and it features a meditative Tai Chi performance and narration of quotes from Tao Te Ching.

Enjoy and feel your resistance to change slipping away…

    A large part of my job is to be an agent of change to help build a positive culture within our organization. Part of the process is to help others move through the uncertainty of change. It is all about helping them feel part of the change and hearing their concerns. Thank you for sharing this visual.

  6. Hi Mary,

    I really enjoyed everything about this post. It has been a perfect reminder for me to be present in the moment, which I so often forget. Thank you so much for this.

    Thanks for sharing this. I love the idea of “touching quietude”. The performer looks like he is fully engaged in every movement, which is a reminder to me to enjoy life deliberately and experience each of its moments with all senses 🙂

    Isn’t it wondrous how meditative a camera’s gaze can be! It would be equally interesting to watch the graceful, deliberate movement in silence. It has a kind of music of its own.

    The flute is beautiful, but in some ways, for me, the synthesized sounds behind the flute seem to counter the effect of the quietude created by the movement and simple sustained notes of the flute.

    Both flute and body movement have the same graceful forms of rising and falling as individual moments/movements, forming into a coherent whole which itself comes into being and passes.

    Kudos to the film makers.
    Thank you for sharing this.

  9. Thank you for allowing me to observe this captivating film! I hope that it will help me find my peace of mind.
