Freeing the Mind from Pain
All Levels, Teacher Training, Therapeutic
Understanding the mind?s role in suffering is one of the great gifts of yoga philosophy. The mind is a mysterious instrument that can lead us down the path of pain and suffering or down the path of freedom and happiness. In order to free the mind from pain, we first need to understand the mind, its 4 functions, its tendency to seek pleasure, and its ability to orientate in either the direction of freedom or suffering. Once we understand this so called anatomy of the mind, we will look at Patanjali?s ?new program? for the mind and the importance of practice and non-attachment as tools to free the mind from pain.
