We are detectives exploring our inner world

Can you stay present, a focused observer, when your fight or flight mechanism erupts?
.
.
Can you let worry, doubt, anxiety and fear alone, concentrating on the breath, exploring the corresponding body sensations.
.
.
Our goal is to experience our fear, worry, doubt and anxiety fully, without judgement, without emotion.
.
.
Our stance is detached, open, relaxed, neutral and focused.
.
.
Mindfulness allows us to approach our trauma, our fears, our doubt and worry in a safe, calm environment.
.
.
Healing arrives when we integrate trauma to this present moment.
.
.
Become friends with your nervous system, your fight or flight mechanism, your fears.
.
.
Free yourself a little with each successive meditative session.
.
.
Mindfulness is not an intellectual property, reading a book or taking a class accomplishes nothing.
.
.
We must sit in silence and experi nice our inner world alone, our fears, our worries and our doubts.
