19 Sep Free Yourself From the Prison of Your Mind
Posted at 23:13h in
Come sit with me and Senior insight meditation teacher Diana Gould for four nights and five days, and spring clean your neighborhood.
Very often it seems that our minds are out to get us; that our mind is like a bad neighborhood we daren’t go in alone. And yet, while it is true that a huge part of our suffering is produced by the mind, it is also true that the same mind contains all that we need to free us from that suffering and addictive behaviors.
Many of us try to escape from “the prison of our minds” with addictive substances or compulsive behaviors, activities and patterns that, by trying to avoid pain and suffering, only cause more. In this retreat we will explore healthier and more productive possibilities, based on ancient spiritual teachings still amazingly relevant today. We will see how the teachings of the Buddha can be utilized to liberate us from stinking thinking, negative thought loops, insecurities, destructive and addictive behaviors that can sabotage our liberation and freedom.
