How do you get your mind to stop shuttling between the past and future? How do you get it to sit still, to be in the moment? How can you relish life as it is, not how it should be?
Having a mindfulness meditation practice helps. In Level 1 of “Starting a Regular Mindfulness Practice by Noorulain Masood”, we explored how it gives you a safe space to begin observing your thoughts from a place of no judgment.
Levels 2 and 3 take you deeper, helping you learn how to become more present day to day, moment to moment. We draw from the works of Eckhart Tolle to explore the concepts of Ego (the man-made “false” self) and the Painbody (the wounds we carry of past emotional pain); and learn how to navigate them to become more mindful of and present to life itself.
Like all be. offerings, this workshop aims to create a kind, accepting, and interactive environment where we really get into it, no question is a “stupid” one, and we cheer each other on as we slowly learn to settle our minds. All we ask for is an open heart and mind, and a desire to learn.
Having completed Level 1 will help but is not a prerequisite for Level 2.
