The Mindfulness Timer is a combination duration timer and interval timer. It allows you to set the duration of your practice session and set an interval gong within the duration for mindfulness meditation, yoga practice, reiki sessions or other practices requiring regulated timing.
Setting the timer is a simple 2-step process (see image of controls below):
Step 1: Inner Circle of Numbers. Turn the dial to the desired Interval setting (setting it to 0 means you don't want any interval gongs within the duration) - Press the ON button.
Step 2: Outer Circle of Numbers. Turn the dial to the desired Duration setting (the duration needs to be longer than the interval or no interval gong will be heard) - Press the ON button.
After 15 seconds, three rings of the gong will signal the beginning of the duration. Single gongs will be heard at the set interval. The end of the duration is signaled by several light rings of the gong followed by three final rings of the gong. The timer will turn itself off automatically after the final gongs.
The volume can be switched between the Low (small musical note) and Normal (large musical note) settings. The low setting is suitable for your meditation space and the normal setting works well in a larger room or with a small group of people.Mindfulness Timer Controls: (located on the bottom of the timer, similar to the Combi Timer Controls)
Please note that the time settings of the timer are fixed settings. That is, the possible intervals are exactly 0 (no interval), 2, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, or 30 minutes. Placing the pointer between the numbers will not provide an interval somewhere inbetween - the timer will produce an interval of either the lower or higher number. This is also true of the duration settings - they are fixed durations of 20, 25, 30, 40, 45, 50, 60, or 90 minutes.
What Does the Symbol Mean?
The lower part symbolizes the ceaseless circle of thoughts - or the cycle of samsara. The line that rises up in a spiral represents the strength of Mindfulness, which has the power to extract us from the cycle and to progress higher and higher to the full awakening of the heart faculties.
When we are aware of the meaning of this symbol, a simple glance at it during the day can be a reminder of mindfulness and gently bring us back to the present moment.
