Reclaim your mind!Learn to get your attention back from the relentless media and news cycle.Underlying everything you view and consume online is the profit motive. Someone, somewhere wants you to believe or think or want or fear something, or someone.
You need to choose. You need to choose to free your mind from the media, from what they want you to think and what they want you to feel.
In this class, I teach a set of practices designed to help us intervene in the mind's tendency to go down a rabbit hole or be swept into a vortex of thoughts and emotions.
These are the real-life skills you need to practice if you want to get back your mind and your life. 
From a class taught in Bromley on Saturday 26 Feb 2022. Subscribe at https://meditationcourse.live to listen in to four live online classes each week.
"You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.Where is that at?" - Terence McKenna (1946 -2000)

There *is* a difference between what we perceive and what we believe.
It is easily demonstrable with some simple exercises that we will do today.
In this Saturday's meditation class at 10, using the power of meditative insight, we shall take a peek through the looking glass.
Meditation is a lens that allows us to, over time, see through many of the illusions and delusions that we adopt to navigate a very confusing, fuzzy reality.
The modern Mind is enslaved by the thoughts that result from how you feel.
Learn how to break the cycle...

All of humanity is now part of a global Consumer Society. The thing that unites isn't morality or ethics or shared values, it's the drive to Consume.
From Billionaire Oligarchs to Third World Street Kids, almost all of us are driven to repeat and extend those things, places, and experiences we need to reward ourselves with. Humanity is now on a hamster wheel seeking Escapism, DIstraction, Comfort and Pleasure.
This all comes with a cost. The cost is the loss of Happiness and Connection.
In this class, I explain how this happens and offer a personal solution through meditation and the daily practice of awareness.
