About the event
What is the Ego Loop?
Since we were little we have been trained to bounce from strong emotions to thoughts and then back again. Over the decades, we've acquired so many ideas about what we feel that the two tumble into a never-ending cycle of thought-emotion-thought-emotion. The whole practice of mediation is - in some sense - about seeing through this loop-the-loop. In our work with Beingfulness we come to see our experience more like a field than a thing and this insight allows us to see what is driving the mill wheel of our discontent. It's actually not a thing (and, therefore, not an unchangeable problem) but rather a sticky fly-wheel of mental formations and embodied emotions. This structure is what psychologists and Buddhists call our Ego - and the crucial thing is to recognise that it's not a thing but rather a habit. And with the insight and tools of mediation we can break the habit. And get happy and loving! More information on the course can be found on Alistairs website.
