A Winter Contemplation On Mindfulness and Focus

Hello Everyone!

I was very moved recently when I watched a video clip from a talk by David Foster Wallace. In it, he presents valuable insights about directing our mindfulness and focus so that we can become the masters of our life experience. I was surprised and delighted to find that Foster Wallace presents these insights using many of the same examples that I’ve been teaching in Finding True Magic Hypnotherapy Trainings for many years.

As we move through this holiday season, when we typically extend and receive blessings, we are also being confronted with news of terrorist activity. We are urged by our leaders to renounce fear, holding onto the goodness of our lives so as to keep an uplifted attitude. But how do we do this?

This video from David Foster Wallace gives a clear and powerful explanation of how to generate, as well as maintain, an uplifted attitude in the face of our habitual reactions to our experience.

Peace and blessings to you for a safe and joyful holiday season!
