Heart-Supported Mind

Heart-Supported Mind – Poetry Cafe – Sunday 27th January 2019

Twilight is the inky blue-black, steely-cool lens of the logical mind

The rational left-hemisphere that’s always asking: Who? What? Where? When? And Why?

Generally, over-focusing 24-7 upon all the little things one should have said, or could have done

Inner-narratives on constant rewind, sometimes for years, decades or even lifetimes

Retrospective key frames in ones timeline robbed of fun

Completely oblivious or unaware, that one was born with a Right-Hemisphere

Offering an additional lens of self-compassion, via heart-supported mind

Like a prism of decision-making processes that are mutually beneficent and kind

Via a hemispherical union, of left and right, both online at the same time

Co-operating as a ‘Whole Mind’

Balancing the polarity of individuation via an authentic heart connection:

With each other, the natural world, the cosmos and ‘The All There Is’

As a direct extension of Source-Energy, each of us, a little piece of Primordial-Qi

A metaphysical integration, providing meaning, purpose and Inner-Peace

Awakening ones third-eye, that can scry a previously unknown spectrum

Discover a parallel dimension

Refracting the piercing white light of inner-sight

The other side of the rainbow crescent moon

Self Compassion & Mindfulness

Catherine Crudgington Blackmore will talk on the subject of self-compassion and Mindfulness:
Sunday 8/10/17
@ 11:00 am

‘Pilates, stretching, running, cycling – you’ve worked your body’s muscles, now it’s time to work on the mind’s muscle memory too, welcome to everyday Mindfulness training’.

Way back in the Palaeolithic day, during our evolution we became attuned to hyper vigilance. For the sound of the crack of a stick in the Woods could easily be a wolf about to leap out and devour us, however even in mondern-day times human minds still chose to remember unpleasant or threatening events, to enable us to be guarded against further traumatic events from happening again in future.

Catherine says: I’m a 49 year old university educated woman, in a loving long term relationship, a lengthy career within the service and education sectors, with stable finances, a love of theatre, literature, politics, Spain, language, culture, warm weather, food and wine and I’ve had a mental breakdown! Too many decades of anxiety, perfectionism and the over riding perception that I could never be good enough came to a head. Subsequent GP referrals to local mental health providers, counselling, drugs and group talks all helped to get me back on track, but it was the acceptance and resilience gained from practising ‘Mindfulness’ that has kept me there. I find it invaluable and I hope that I can share what I’ve learnt  to help others.

Catherine  volunteers at The Stress Project in Holloway.
