We want to be happy. To enjoy our life, our relationships, our work, our time off. Yet, in spite of our best intentions, ease turns into frustration and confidence turns into anxiety. So, what’s going on? Where is this misery coming from?

 

Surprisingly, the answer is found in our own mind. The human mind is enormously receptive to being programmed with responses based on our personal experience in the past. Once programmed, habitual responses arise silently, without our knowledge or consent. Some responses produce positive results. Others produce misery for ourselves & others. Particularly damaging are the habits that take over automatically when we feel a loss of control, stability, clarity. Fortunately, with understanding & mindfulness, this unhappy cycle can be transformed. 


Class participants will learn:

  • The mind is the source of our experience;
  • How past conditioning arises in mind & develops into positive or negative mind states
  • How to use feelings as indicators of the presence of conditioned reactive states
  • How to recognize the choice point where new behavior is possible
  • Specific mindfulness practices for:
    -
    Recognizing & stabilizing negative mind states 
    - Recognizing & nourishing positive mind states.
