Series 2 – Episode 21: MEDITATION – Need an alternative to Meditation practice when it all seems too difficult & your mind is completely mad with thoughts?

Discover 6 techniques to turn Writing into a meditation practice so that you can develop a relationship with your Mind – a Midlife crazy-wisdom skill!

In this episode, I explore how to work with narrative writing, expressive writing, free-flow with journal prompts, Morning Pages & Thought Downloads – even, Professor Dumbledore’s Pensieve!

Using these alternatives to meditation opens the door to seeing the difference between THINKING & THOUGHT where you’re the Observer, the Witness of your own Mind.

You’ll discover how to brain dump, how to thought-download, how to reframe & how to declutter your own Mind, just like you declutter a cupboard in your house!

Brain Management through Meditation or Writing as Meditation is all about how to increase awareness of the thoughts going on in your mind + how to develop impartiality so you can observe your own thinking without judgment (no inner self-critic here!) + how to work with your exact patterns of how you turn Thinking into Thought, where you engage with your thinking mind & then create the Think-Feel-Act patterns that run your life + how to find where unseen bias is holding you back… eventually we even get to explore the independent origination of thought & what this means for your Wholebeing Happiness in Midlife – such a puzzle, so exciting!
