Buddha called an uncontrolled mind a “monkey mind” precisely because it’s jumping all over the place from one object to the next. Our mind can only focus on one object at a time – so in multi-tasking the mind is simply moving rapidly from one object to the next and back again. Distractions and over-stimulations like these are literally the opposite of concentration, inner peace, and happiness. In truth our uncontrolled monkey mind is the source of all our daily worries and problems.
In this course, Kadam Mick will explain how to tame the monkey mind through the practice of meditation and mindfulness and experience true stillness within.
Everybody welcome. No previous experience necessary.
