June’s Challenge from the Monastic Ones

So a lot of you remember The Monastic Challenge from February. You know, that crazy month of vegan, sugar-free, caffeine-free, alcohol-free living that I put myself through with the help of my personal board of directors, The Braintrust. The month after that we came up with The Media Fast Challenge where we attempted to wean ourselves from the constant stream of information that is our lives in the digital age. I’ll admit I failed a little on that one, but it did help me develop better habits with my Internet use.

April and May we sort of fell off the face of the earth a little with each of us putting our full efforts into our secular lives. Kris finished his first e-book “The Hollywood Acting Guide,” Drew and Matt threw themselves into their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training and I wrapped up an intense job search and began teaching two classes a week for the first time. Now that our lives have returned to a reasonable pace, we are proud to announce our challenge for the month of June. We really hope that you consider joining us for this one.

The challenge for the month of June is very simple:
Do at least one random act of kindness of day.

That’s it. Whatever you interpret that to be. Helping an old lady across the street, buying a homeless guy lunch, whatever. For accountability and motivation we will keep a log on our Facebook fan page. The act can be as big or small as you want. If there are multiple acts of kindness then that is even better.  It is our intention for this to be a way to bring awareness towards being more other-oriented while making small differences in the lives of those around us.

Best of luck in your efforts.

Mike ^_^
