Description

“You need to talk about you, and we all need to talk about us.”

In the 21st-century, life can feel like an infinite loop. Get up, go to work, come home, watch the TV, go to bed, party at weekends. Then there is the infinite loop of the mind. Juggling infinite task, infinite lists of infinite tasks, going over past events, constantly rehearsing what to say, what to do and the endless judging: is this right?, is this wrong?, is this fair, is this unfair?, is this good?, is this bad?, will I won’t I? should I? would I? could I? It is as if every waking moment is captured by the contents of our minds. On this retreat, we will explore the nature of the mind and the content of the mind using powerful tools that can help us to find calmness and happiness in our otherwise hectic lives.

Understanding our minds

Science tells us that we spend half our waking lives in our own minds: thinking, remembering, imagining, shuffling the infinite task lists and worrying how it will ever get done. And yet, there is no public dialogue about our inner dialogue. There’s nothing in literature or in the media about that 50% of our waking lives. Where are our lessons at school or at home about managing our minds? As a society we are constantly promoting a culture to nurture our physical body, but the health of our mind has never been on the social agenda unless we stop functioning when it is unhelpfully referred to as mental illness with all of the attendant stigma and baggage. The medical community, our National Health Service, are fully aware of the impact the mind has over our lives. Stress related illness and disease is on the rise, costing us billions.

The Inner Voice – The Final Taboo

Michelle and Robert are determined to break the silence about this final social taboo, which is the contents of our own minds. We need to get the conversation into the public domain. With an abundance of self help books on the market, titles stretching from religion to science for guidance and support, it is often confusing to know where to begin. Leaving the spiritual or scientific jargon and dogma behind, Michelle and Robert will be discussing our minds, and the meditative tools we can use to explore them, in simple and useful ways that are accessible to everyone.
