Blue: A Mindfulness Tale


Like many other millennials, Hill Schroder spent much of his childhood overly medicated. Yet it wasn’t until he ditched the medication for meditation that he finally began feeling calm and centered.

To help future generations develop a mindfulness practice at an earlier age, Hill spent his final days during a six-month stint at Mississippi’s Magnolia Grove Monastery writing a poem about Blue, an injured bluebird that is guided to physical and mental health by a zen-master chipmunk.

The poem, now in hardback form and accompanied by illustrations from Archer artist Nuri Keli, can be pre-purchased on Kickstarter.
