Letting Go
Much is written about how suffering is anchored by the illusion of permence and a craving for, and attachment to, those things that bring us comfort and pleasure. The response of many ancient cultures to this realisation was to renonouce all material possessions which led to the aceticism of hermits and monks. Other philophical perspectives try to find a middle way (buddhism). What does it actually mean to let go for a meditator and what do we actually do to practice it.In this episode, Robert’s advice and guidance and the practices he teaches are rather simple.The meditations have no name but are designed to help the students to experience the release of the complexities of the modern world.Support the show
Mental Models of The Mind
#Mindfulness and #Meditation is all about the #Mind.To work with the mind, it helps to have some models of our inner processes. These models need to model the mind in a way that helps our practices.There is too much dogma associated with the mind. Most of it has historical roots and is part of the tangle of our broken cultural narrative that tries to explain our experience while remaining mainly in denial of some of the key elements of our experience such as the mind.Where is the education about the mind? Where are the conversations that help us to express our inner experience with our peers, our families, our colleagues? Speaking about the mind has become taboo.To break this taboo we must have a way of discussing the mind that is universal and that is helpful.The Mental Models of The Mind that I teach are all of these things. We can notice and experience our inner processes without becoming mired in unhelpful religious or scientific dogma.In this podcast, Robert describes the models he uses and we practice some techniques that enable us to see the mental models working as a way of describing our common experiences.Meditations: - Following the breath - One of Robert's personal Pranayama exercises - Counting the Breaths - Labelling the ThoughtsSupport the show
