Meditation is a proven way to look after your mind.
Let’s face it: we service our car with an oil and grease change; we vacuum the house. We know to look after the body with diet and exercise.
But how about taking care of the mind, through which we relate to all of our experience?
Meditation is an ages-old technique for mind-care.
Unlike our phones and devices, the inner firmware of meditation never needs updating. It’s as reliable now as it was centuries past.
In meditation, we’re not expected to feel a certain way or attain a certain ideal.
Everyone has a busy mind!
The aim of meditation is not to stop thoughts or banish emotions. We just allow ourselves to be however we are at the time.
Yet instead of getting caught in our storylines, instead of fusing with our thoughts, we learn to step back and observe them from a kind, gentle standpoint.
Because meditation requires staying on track, it is famous for training focus.
And by engaging the soothing side of the nervous system, it effects are calming and enjoyable.
I invite you to join me for 8 Monday evenings in Kyogle NSW starting 15th October 2018 (6pm-7.30pm) for a series of short meditations interspersed with gentle movements, relaxation and some discussion. $130 ($105 concession) phone Shakti 66 33 3208
CAUTION Meditation can be helpful for mental health issues, but should be considered an addition to, not a substitution for, prescribed medication. Meditation is not suitable for people with psychosis.
