In our first week together, we will explore - in a very practical and experiential way - the ‘Why’ and ‘How’ of Mind-Training for High-Performance and Well-Being. Good theories are rare, but when you find them, they explain most phenomena well, predict the range of what might happen in certain scenarios, and suggest interesting experiments or applications that you could do. Let’s begin with a brief introduction to the Evolutionary Mismatch hypothesis.
Joy is central to the state of mind for tranquility and attaining insight in the Himalayan tradition. As an alternative to viewing the mismatch between our untamed mind and modern life as “unfortunate'', this week we will consider a more liberating and joyful perspective on the human mind; one that focuses on the promise of its unexplored potential.
In our third and final week, we begin by examining classifications of strengths, whom they serve, and how the Himalayan tradition differs from other established ones in developing the mind and cultivating strengths. We will also compare two types of psychometric assessments for identifying “strengths” and learn how to get better value out of them. And an introduction to conclude: Say hello to the two parts of Step #3 in the “30 Seconds Wiser” protocol.
