When you think of a treasure hunt, you probably think:   winners, losers, & prizes.   In short, a treasure hunt needs to be competitive, fast-paced, and full of adrenaline, right???


In fact, there’s NO reason a hunt has to be fast paced at all!  In fact, it can be all about MINDFULNESS


In this innovative scavenger hunt program, we slow things down!

  • We start with a meditation.
  • We discuss and explore the 5 different energies that people “show up” with (and how they manifest)
  • We explore the 5 distinct ways people react to stress
  • We tie your hunt back to the Buddha’s Eight-fold Path


Only then do we play the game — a clue-based scavenger hunt — WITH PEOPLE FOCUSED INWARDLY ON THEIR OWN REACTIONS, as well as their INTERACTIONS WITH OTHERS!


Why is this so unique?

  1. Scavenger hunts are usually done competitively.
  2. Mindfulness is usually done in a solitary manner.
  3. This program allows people to practice mindfulness WHILE INTERACTING WITH OTHERS, in a fast-paced environment when mindfulness matters the most!


Perhaps it was the Buddha who said that mindfulness is not the practice of a solitary hermit monk, meditating on a mountaintop.    Mindfulness is the practice of the valley, in society, with people interacting with people!


Mindfulness is crucial in society.  It’s crucial in relationships.  It’s absolutely vital at work!   And here, you get to practice it in a safe environment (with coaching & instruction)
