Sarah's Story

Example of Creativity Wealth 

Sarah grew up with addict parents both of whom passed away early in her life. While struggling with constant panic attacks, she discovered new peace when a childhood friend introduced her to an Ajahn Braum video about death. This began her journey into Buddhist teachings and ultimately connected her to us. Having never experienced Buddhism except through online videos and readings, Sarah reached out to us eager to join us this Summer at the After Mindfulness Urban Retreat.


We're so excited to host her story and many others as speakers such as Ajahn Braum gather with us from all over the world to explore how Buddhist teachings empower us to find our voice and true happiness for the greater good of our global family.

How to make your selfie

A few simple suggestions to record your video:


Camera setup: simply use your smartphone and shoot it in landscape mode or horizontally. The camera or phone should be directly in front of you shooting straight-on.


Location: A walk outside with minimum background noise, a quiet spot inside next to a window all both fine. If inside, position a bright window so the light is hitting your face diagonally and coming from 11 or 2 o’clock rather than from the side or straight on from the front. 


The two things we'd like for you to record are as follows:


An introduction of yourself and where you’re from.  Please be sure to mention at minimum After Mindfulness or 11th GCB at UC Berkeley this June. Add any upbeat feelings towards coming together this June with other Sanghas and like-minded organizations to share in applying the dharma to a movement of interconnectedness and love


State the question and then Answer: What does After Mindfulness mean to me? Please try and keep your answer to 2-3 minutes.


Feel free to either do this in two separate video clips or simply tackle the first step and then pause for a moment before beginning the second step.


Lastly, if you do this, we’ll of course, need your permission to share this on social media and on our website. Thanks again for helping us with these outreach efforts.


Thank you Everyone and Good luck with the video!
