Your brain is constantly engaged in the thinking process. Most of the time you are unaware of the incessant 'chatter' going on in your mind because you are accustomed to it and you have tuned it out. For now, try to turn your attention to your head. For the next minute or two, notice the thoughts coming and going in your head.
When you observe carefully, you will notice that although the movement of thoughts seems swift, there are gaps or space. A space in which a thought comes to an end and a new thought hasn't yet appeared. A space in which you realise you have been caught up in thinking. This space or gap is not related to the thought process. You don't usually notice this space. But if you observe carefully, you will become aware that this space is one of silence. A brief space in which there is no thought – just a space of silence. This 'space of peace' may be the missing piece in your life. Not knowing that this space exists may be the root cause of all the problems in your life.
Yet, how does this space free us from the trap of fear, anger, stress and anxiety that our own mind has created for ourselves? How can this space help us lead a more conscious, mindful, creative, productive and balanced life.
Coinciding with the launch of his new book - In between thoughts - Santosh Nambiar, the well-known author of 'A New Way of Living' (published by Balboa Press USA, Hay House) 'Life A Meditation' and 'Taking your life from Mediocrity to Creativity' is presenting an interactive 3-hour workshop entitled "Constant compulsive mind chatter, its root cause, consequence and a way out of it" on Saturday 2nd March 2019 at Hawthorn Community Precinct – Meeting Room 1 (Ground floor).
Have you realized that every single thought in your head is sending stress signals from your brain to every cell, tissue and organ in your body, thereby inducing stress and anxiety. Hence, your constant and compulsive mind chatter is keeping you constantly under the pump instigating the stress and anxiety that burdens you in life.
In this interactive workshop, Santosh will explore the journey of self-discovery by acknowledging inevitable questions that will uncover the truth of who you are and what your purpose in this manifested world is.
In this engaging and informative workshop, running from 10am to 1pm, Santosh will also discuss simple but powerful common-sense Meditation practices to recondition our brains to inspire clarity, peace, and creativity within the demanding and chaotic world we live in today.
