Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.
This week, we’re thinking about Flow. Hungarian-American psychologist and father of 'flow' Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi puts it best:
Flow is being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz.
Flow is powerful. It helps me not only get things done but also center myself in any activity, whether I'm reading, drawing, meditating, running or cooking. Even in rap music, the term' flow' is used to describe the fluidity and congruence of rhyming. Top emcees could keep going without even thinking about it.
We'd love to hear from you!
What if you put away your phone this afternoon or evening? What would be one thing you'd want to fully immerse yourself into?

For the last few months, we've been focused on building our prototypes of the Aduri smart cushion—a meditation cushion that will transform your meditation experience. We've been sharing early versions of the experience in a few presentations and pitches at NYU, the NYC Media Lab, and companies large and small. It's been inspiring and fascinating to learn from everyone's feedback and thoughts. :)
We're getting ready to share this with you and hear your feedback before showing it publically.
Let's Be Friends!
