Tricycle Meditation Month is our challenge to commit to sit every day in March. In the final week of our free practice series, meditation teacher Mindy Newman leads us through an exercise that is meant to help bring the effects of meditation off the cushion and into our lives.

“In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, they talk about dedicating the merit or the benefit of our meditation to others,” says Newman. “What we’re doing with dedication is opening our minds up to what we want the ripple effects of our meditation practice to be.”

Capping off the previous videos in this series and building on the skills already discussed, Newman invites us to cultivate a daily practice that can have positive effects on the world.

Mark your calendars: Newman will wrap up Meditation Month with a live call on Thursday, March 29 from 8–9 p.m. EST on Facebook.
