Most people have a narrator living in their head. This narrator is often compulsive, repetitive, mean, critical, cruel, or even downright murderous.
Meditation is touted as the way to get rid of this narrator, or stop them from interfering, but the way meditation is instructed can get in the way. It certainly did for me.
When I came to meditation, most of the instruction kept me directly at the site of the problem: my thoughts. ("Watch your thoughts pass by like clouds," "Find the space between your thoughts," "Be equanimous towards your thoughts.")
None of it started making a real difference to me until I came across somatic meditation. Only then did the repetitive, cruel, endlessly-looping narrator start to quiet down, and only then did I start to find out it was possible to live in my life, rather than a few inches outside of it.
In this workshop, we lay out a framework for beginning to approach these issues, and some practices (or rather, a style of practicing) that dissolves some of these blocks and obstacles that the usual instructions always left me with.
