MIDL Training 40:
Allowing Stillness 30min


In MIDL Mindfulness Training 40/52 you gradually lengthen to 30 minutes the simple skill of allowing the deep relaxation that arises through not doing. This is a beautiful practice of sitting still and allowing your body to relax part by part. You then mentally feel this deep physical relaxation allowing it to enter your mind.

This process will challenge and gradually remove defensive armours produced by your mind. Through repetition your mind will gradually allow the relaxation to access deeper levels of defencelessness until all defensive armour is removed and safety is experienced within the stillness of the mind itself.

MIDL Training 42:
Grounding Stillness 60min


In MIDL Mindfulness Training 42/52 you take your time entering stillness through gradually grounding awareness within your body. This slow process of 'grounding' anchors stillness and allows it to enter within every cell of your body, your mind will experience safety.

This softening technique due to its long settling period, is useful in lowering the symptoms of anxiety and depression by relaxing the fight / flight response. For deconditioning the experience of anxiety and depression this is most beneficial when combined with MIDL Mindfulness Training 3/52: Retraining Autonomous Breathing.

MIDL Training 43:
Remembering Awareness


In MIDL Mindfulness Training 43/52 you change your focus from experiences that arise within the field of awareness, to the observation of awareness itself. To do this you withdraw your attention from external objects and become mindful of mindfulness itself by focussing on 'remembering to remember awareness'.

Whenever you become distracted during mindfulness meditation it is because you have literally 'forgotten' what you are aware of. This gap of forgetting is then filled by your mind with your habitual patterns. To establish mindfulness, the aspect of 'remembering to remember' is cultivated.
