“Headflix” is what I call the incredibly addictive movie-making machine in our own head. Most of us are hopelessly subscribed, totally lost in the infinite amount of movies that play up there on a consistent basis. Here we will introduce you to a few tips that help to integrate meditation and entertainment, drama and wisdom. Learn how to kick your feet up, relax and become the detached observer of these deceptive shows.
Our Two Weekly Audio Teachings
Here we list our two recordings from last week’s classes. The classes are held every week at the Phuket Meditation Center and are for free. Everyone is welcome to join! You can find out more about the free sessions on this page: Free Meditation Classes. We hope to see you soon 🙂
EPISODE 165: Unsubscribe from Headflix
Headflix – it’s what I call the cinema in our own head. The various movies that tell you how your life was, how it will be and how it’s all going to play out. There are various genres and you’ll be guaranteed a lifetime of entertainment. But what happens when you unsubscribe?
EPISODE 166: Who Watches Mind Movies
The mind plays one movie after another. It talks, tells stories, designs and shapes our perception of this world continuously. Most of us are hopelessly drowning within the incessant flood of mental content. My question this week is: “Who is actually watching these movies? Who believes in all these stories?”
Blog: Headflix & Awareness of Fabrication
This article is definitely for those meditators who do enjoy watching movies sometimes. I certainly do! Now, does that make me an inferior and downright unspiritual worlding? Probably! Should we all stop to entertain ourselves and move into a cave? Only if you are a spiritual Superman with Rainbow Ninja Powers – then you may move into a cave 😀 For the rest of us, it’s back to training in the midst of Netflix and Headflix. Let’s see how this fun little practice could be a valuable vehicle for inner transformation.
