Transcript

Good evening, I've got my, my favorite place behind me. So it's great to see you again. Sure

you've had a great day. And this is now a workshop on meditation, which, of course, can be also

called mindfulness. So I'm going to give a little class. And I just want to remind you of one or two

key points that I mentioned this morning in my talk, and some of you might not have been here

for that.


So just to remind you that one of the big misconceptions about meditation is about the thoughts

that come up when we meditate, and what what, what does that mean, you know, people try to

meditate, as if they're trying to switch their mind off and go into a blank state, clear your mind,

blank out your mind, still your mind? I mean, all of that doesn't work. Because the more you try

to steal your mind, the busier it becomes. It's like if I say to you don't think about a monkey,

you'll think about a monkey.
