'TAKING IN THE GOOD'
'Taking in the good' is a brain-science savvy and psychologically skillful way
to improve how you feel, get things done, and relate to others.
... Coming to Lismore this August.
The TIG practice takes mindfulness to a whole new level.
It provides sparkling incentive and instant gratification: how's that for rewarding!
I promise you will find this practice really enjoyable. Personally, I have found it life-changing.

Ever wondered why your mind jumps so easily to the negative? Why pleasant experiences don’t stick like the unpleasant ones do? Guess what: it’s not your fault. Evolutionary biology tilts us towards a ‘negativity bias’. In many ways, we are emotionally stone age.
Difficult impressions pile up, obscuring the good stuff all around us. The mindfulness practice of ‘Taking in the Good’ redresses the balance. It really helps to give your brain and nervous system a nudge, because they won’t update by themselves.

The MEDITATIONS are short and enjoyable. If you haven’t meditated before,
no problem. I will guide you through.
We will do three types of meditation:
1. Meditation for focus and observing/befriending the mind
2 . Meditation in view of different approaches to Savouring
3. Meditation to soothe and safely process difficult emotions (through the practice of ‘R.A.I.N.’)
We also explore the aspects of TIG through my short presentations/explanations, take-home props, discussions and reflections, as well as some fun games to keep the atmosphere light. We learn more when we are relaxed!
Plus, from week 2, there will be a long lying down relaxation at the start of the class, to unwind and revive from the rigours and stresses of the day.
