Group 05/13/2011

Today in group we discussed the core mindfulness skills. We went over the pros and cons of each state of mind - Reason mind, Emotion mind, Body mind - and how they can be used to help make Wise Mind choices. The premise is simple: make sure you're attending to each of these states of mind, stop, synthesize and make a choice that balances each of these factors as appropriate to the situation. During the discussion of Wise Mind, we reviewed times each of us has been in a wise mind place and how it physically feels to be make a wise mind decision. For many people, wise mind lives in your diaphragm. It "feels right" in your body, particularly settled, in that place.
