Session 7


In this module, you will begin to clarify the relationship between mindfulness and the self. At the deepest level, your mindfulness practice can help you cultivate a different relationship with self in which you develop an observing stance that can become stronger after repeated and consistent mindfulness practice. As a result, you will be able to take a step back from all kinds of thoughts, including identity-related thoughts. 

You will:

  • Understand the “Shopping Cart Metaphor” and how that impacts identity and makes room for a more dynamic sense of self
  • Understand the expression of the ego, and how to know you are operating from ego.
  • Become more aware of the stories about the self and the difference from the stories themselves so that you can transcend the ego.
  • Experience exercises that will allow you to experience the difference between the self as a story and the self as an observer.
