Literary Mindfulness Meditation

We define “Literary Mindfulness” as reading something and entering the mindset of what you have read; staying in that moment, and you will achieve a temporary but beneficial calmness. Living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) can give moments of negative thoughts and times of increased doubt.

We define “Active Reflection” to be focusing your mind for a moment and then writing your thoughts about the reading(s) on a website or cell phone app. The mindfulness journey begins by reading, pausing to think, and then it ends by actively reflecting on your thoughts in writing a response.

Our goal is to build resilience, reduce stress, and improve the quality-of-life (QoL) in a person-with-Parkinson’s (PwP) and their care partner. Practicing Literary Mindfulness and Active Reflection will require the participant to read, react, reflect, and respond (the 4R’s of literary mindfulness meditation).
