TAMING THE MIND

Saturday 9th February – 10.30am – 1pm

Do you ever feel that your mind is like a wild elephant? Do you find that you experience all sorts of unhelpful thoughts which weave painful fantasies that disturb your mind and get you nowhere? This is very normal.

Unless we make an effort to guide our minds in the direction we want it to go, our mind will be in control of us. However there is an alternative. We can learn to take responsibility for our own happiness by learning how to tame our ‘wild elephant mind’. Mindfulness is a part of our mind that remembers a virtuous object or we can say a helpful way of looking at things that will make our mind calm and happy. Alertness enables us to see when following a particular train of thought isn’t helpful. We can all learn to guide ourselves into positive ways of thinking by training in mindfulness and alertness.

The half day course consists of two 1 hour sessions (10:30-11:30am & 12-1pm) which include guided meditations and a talk on the topic.  There is a half hour break in the middle for refreshments.  You are welcome to arrive from 9.45am for pre-course refreshments and to stay after the course also to relax in the centre.
