Taming the Monkey Mind

tame meditationYou, the real YOU, is not your body, your thoughts, the voices in your head, or the roles you play. The real YOU is your higher consciousness, the silent witness, which is wise, peaceful and loving at all times. And, you can learn to relate to the world from this higher perspective and silence the chatter in your mind. This workshop will help you differentiate between your higher consciousness and your ego; the monkey mind. It will help you understand how the ego works, why it creates the thoughts it does, (often conflicting, circular and neurotic!) and how it relates to your emotions and inner energy. Armed with this knowledge, you can begin to tame the ego and operate from your higher self, connecting to the right solution for every challenge or opportunity in every moment.

Crises & Crossroads: How To Make Friends with Change

change

Whether welcome, or painful, global or personal, change is the only constant in life. All of us face times when cherished beliefs, values, accomplishments and possessions are threatened. Difficult decisions have to be made. A willow tree does not fear the wind because it knows how to bend. A rock has a different strength, steadfast, unmoving. Both are needed. Sometimes the lesson is to stand against the tide, sometimes to go with the flow. Always the challenge is to meet the changing world around us with love and joy. Learn to understand and how to have the courage to face what God is asking of you.
