What is What is Making Friends with Your Mind?
Making Friends with Your Mind is an in-depth meditation course with a lot of different elements to it. Those new to meditation often struggle to calm their mind and, when they find themselves getting distracted, berate themselves! It can turn into a vicious cycle, leading to more and more frustration and negativity.
This course examines the relationship we have with our thoughts, and helps us look at distractions objectively. It teaches you that restlessness, agitation, fatigue and discomfort are all completely natural and inevitable, even for the most experienced meditators. In this course we’ll help you meet frustrating experiences with acceptance. You’ll discover that contentment and peace is possible, even with everything going on around us.
Just as a child requires care and love, so does your mind. Excessive self criticism can be hugely damaging, often leading to breakdowns in relationships and even mental illness.
Learn how to support and encourage your mind, creating a peaceful inner space that you can access whenever you need.
Benefits of Making Friends with Your Mind:
As the name suggests, Making Friends with Your Mind focuses on accepting the constant chatter and creating a positive mental environment. We look at ways to access inner peace whenever you need it.
This course can help you rebuild relationships and repair those that may have suffered. Negative chatter and self criticism can be replaced by peace, acceptance and clarity. You’ll be able to look at situations and your thoughts towards them objectively.
Knowledge of the nature of the mind
You can learn a huge amount about the nature of the mind and your thoughts through meditation. A better knowledge of your mind can help you in situations where negative emotions and chatter may otherwise have taken over.
Trying (and failing!) to sleep while your mind whirs away with thoughts and worries is a common occurrence, but this course can help you access a mental space that goes hand in hand with a great night’s sleep.
