You have very likely heard the phrase “you are not your thoughts.” And while it is good to be reminded of this core insight, just how do you put it into practice? How do you get your mind to soften that inner monologue that so frequently allows negative thoughts to control you?
The first step is to recognize them as simply what they are: thoughts—not truths. Mindfulness can free you to do that. And this new series can get you started.
This free series includes four videos from the much-beloved and deeply regarded teachers of the newly enhanced Power of Awareness course: Devin Berry, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, and Konda Mason. Each video will bring you closer to recognizing your trained thought patterns as often counterproductive, and teach you how to rise above them.
We encourage you to watch the series and discover not only how your thoughts may be holding you back, but also how to do something about it. The wisdom and freedom that comes from this awareness can be life-changing.
