There is a common misconception about meditation that it is all about "stopping thoughts." But that can be an exercise in frustration, since our minds are accustomed to thinking. Rather, mindfulness is about bringing our full awareness to whatever is present for us, including our thoughts. In this meditation, you will practice naming the kinds of thoughts coming up for you. You will learn how to be the observer of your own thinking, which ultimately will allow you to respond to events in your life with wisdom, rather than being in reaction to them.
