You will be transformed by Kimberly Jonas' series on Quieting the Mind.

If you are jumping into the middle of this, here's last week's session on Quieting the Mind that will get you caught up.


On this show, we will discuss:

Why we avoid quieting the mind

The first, essential step required to start quieting the mind

Specific techniques and practices

Last week, we invited you to look at how technology crowds your life and choose ONE thing that you could remove so that you could start this practice of quieting the mind. We hope that was successful. We'll be talking more in depth today about additional practices and techniques.

Before we do that, Kimberly would like to address a few topics that came up in our discussion last week:

  • Working with our survival instinct
  • The primary reason why we avoid slowing down and quieting the mind
  • Why “sleeping on it” isn’t always helpful

Before we talk about specific techniques, can you remind us about the essential step that comes before those techniques?

I imagine that you see a lot of different sources of overload in your work. What are the most common sources of busy-ness and excess?

So let’s talk now about specific techniques..... missteps and mistakes along the way?

WEEK TWO- we discussed-

  • The importance of quieting the mind in the our busy lives - rather than completely unplugging
  • Letting go of our knee-jerk reactions
  • The "culture of rudeness" that has cropped up as a result of our fast-paced society
  • Taking charge and not allowing yourself to become a victim
  • Practices for identifying sources of distraction and busy mind in your life
