Quieting the Mind Part 1

Quieting the Mind explores the nature of mindfulness and the very considerable physical, cognitive and emotional benefits that accrue from developing this capability.

A quiet mind is a strong mind.  In this and the following talk we’ll examine why and how this is so.  In Part 1 we’ll examine the reasons that a quiet mind is so beneficial, and we’ll look at two practices to induce it: extended out breathing and a simple mindfulness meditation.  In part 2 we’ll explore other applications: everyday mindfulness, interpersonal mindfulness, and using mindfulness to increase our emotional intelligence and balance.
