Monkey mind is a 4 hour workshop designed to explore the inner workings of the mind through then lens of Buddhist philosophy and modern neuroscience. Together we will investigate what thoughts are, how and why they proliferate, what it means to live in thinking vs present moment awareness, and most importantly HOW to tame and befriend your own wild mind.
A trained mind is a happy mind. When we are lost in thinking or stuck in difficult repetitive thought processes we become exhausted and depleted. Learning how to take a break from the thinking mind can be extremely nourishing and restful. We will uncover what your most-played, repetitive thought-streams are, and investigate and befriend the voice of your inner critic.
