Introduction to Mindful Inquiry Workshop
Saturday, April 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$65
What is Mindful Inquiry? It is a powerful tool to listen deeply in each moment– both to ourselves and to others– for clear seeing. Often, our minds are seeking solutions to problems, and we are out of touch with the energy in our bodies and what we are intuitively sensing. Paradoxically, focusing on solutions is often not as helpful to being with the experience in compassionate presence. Through mindful inquiry, we move past the surface information to gain clarity on more essential information. We let go of the assessing mind for deeper insight.
First, we learn to tune into our bodies which provide a wealth of information. Among the many questions we may ask, can be: What sensations do I notice in my body? What am I present to in this moment? What is my mind telling me? Through what lens am I observing this experience? Is there something in this moment which I am not able to accept? How does any judgment manifest? Does my judgment change the way I view and interact in this situation? Is this something I have felt before? Again, these are just a few of the many questions that we use to explore our inner experience or that of another.
