Zen the F* Out: It's Not What You Think
A meditation class for anyone who's tried and "failed," based on the idea that anyone can do it. Clear, lighthearted teaching. (virtual)
About this Event
If I had a million dollars for every time someone said to me, "I've tried to meditate..." and then there's a longgg pause.... "but I just can't do it."
So I ask them what they mean. Because I really want to know.
And every single time, they say something like this:
"Well, I've tried but I just can't make my mind settle down! I sit there and my mind is ALL OVER THE PLACE! UGHHHH! I just can't do it."
And this people, is The NUMBER ONE bit of boloney people have been sold about what meditation is.
1. Meditation is not about MAKING your mind do anything, shut up or become all calm and silent or anything like that.
2. Anyone can learn to meditate, yes, even you. For real.
THEN WHAT IS MEDITATION FOR?
- Meditation helps you:
- know yourself better
- reduce suffering
- reduce confusion
- increase clarity
- increase happiness
There's a TON of other things it will also do for you but let's start with basics okay?
Join me this Saturday on Zoom at 10am for a basic intro to what it is and how to do it.
