180 - Meditation: The Pause Button for Habitual Reactivity
In this episode, I delve deeper into how meditation acts as a massive pause button for the cycle of habitual reactivity. I'll explore beliefs, thoughts, emotions, feelings, actions, and consequences, discussing how they influence our lives and the lives of others. We'll look at how we can cultivate skillful habits through meditation or mindfulness. By taking a pause from our habitual ways of living, we can achieve powerful self-reflection and lasting change.We also examine the two primary types of meditation - fixed attention and open awareness - and why it's essential to practice both to create the Middle Way.So, take a break from your busy life and give this episode a listen! Let me explain how hitting the pause button in the cycle of reactivity can lead to a more balanced life. Make sure to stay tuned for my upcoming online course, where I'll share specific techniques for both types of meditation. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
