The anatomy of meditation: getting the mind out of the head

January 14, 2010

Buddhism class has started up again. Wednesday nights, all insight all the time; from 7 to 9. 

Last semester these classes were a keystone of my sanity – the eye of the hurricane that is my med school life. Apparently I enjoy thinking about awareness.

Don’t worry, this blog isn’t getting new-agey or self-helpful.  But, I will share something our teacher said tonight.”Your mind is important and can be worked with; a lot of us don’t think we have minds. We think we have brains.” 

A quick shout out to my teacher Ethan Nichtern and the Interdependence Project. Look them up.
