“Lynn’s the real deal.” ~Dr Rick Hanson
“Lynn has experienced a profound recognition of present moment awareness and embodies it naturally. That’s the kind of teacher anyone would want, for if one’s teacher does not have the direct experience of what is being taught, true transformation just cannot happen.” ~Scott Kiloby
Topic: Friends With Your Mind: How To Stop Torturing Yourself With Your Thoughts
The mind is a system of stimulus and response, and our brain literally develops in response to our experiences. One of the foundations of being friends with our own mind is to be able to work effectively with our thoughts, with our responses to our thoughts, and with the energy and sensations in our body that are stimulated by our thoughts. We need to know the essentials of how it works to understand our bodymind, feelings, nervous system and identification as a separate self.
Many experiences happen in our early life where we disconnect from ourselves, from our sense of value, and from the present moment. Troubling experiences commonly become core deficiency beliefs of unworthiness and unlovability – that feeling there is something fundamentally wrong with us.
This drives unhappiness and addiction, including spiritual seeking.
Even after seeing through separation, it is common to have nondual awareness drift out of reach. Our attention is pulled back to thoughts Velcroed to energy in our body. Scott Kiloby’s Living Inquiries allow us to freeze-frame and look directly and safely at this mechanism. Associations of thought/memory Velcroed with energy in our body are seen and released. We have effective tools to inquire into the memories and associations from our past, and this reduces the drive of our compulsive avoidance.
This is a hands-on workshop where you will learn and practice simple strategies to work directly with thoughts and sensation. We then have access to the stillness and ease that is always present. Through the direct experience of welcoming everything that comes and goes in the field of awareness, we reach a tipping point where we no longer fear our own body and mind. We know in our cells that even intense bodily energy is not here to hurt us. As we intimately know and trust ourselves, we reconnect within and separation dissolves.
