Insight and Unconscious Bias
with Choden and Heather
Insight allows us to peek beneath the surface level of our conscious minds and get a glimpse of the murky subliminal reaches of mind where unseen mechanisms of habit and conditioning churn away at shaping our lives. Seeing our habits and conditioning face to face and bringing kindness and acceptance to them, creates the conditions for change. We will apply these insight methods to unconscious bias and explore how they might help us become free of prejudices and conditioning that we might not even be aware of. We will also look at how conditioning leads to projection and how projection shapes our experience of the world we live in. A key principle of insight is that the seeing is the doing. Once we see our life situation clearly, we break the spell of illusion and this allows us to live our lives with compassion and equanimity.
The master class will involve teaching, guided practice and sharing.
