Settling the Mind in its Natural State: Allowing the mind to heal itself

B. Alan Wallace, 16 May 2010

In this morning’s introduction, Alan talks about how the mind is very capable of healing itself, and how the purpose of settling the mind in its natural state is to observe it vividly while not doing things that will prevent the mind from healing. He also talks about talk therapy and medicine, highlighting how they are can be crucial in some cases as a preamble to meditating.

Afterwards we have the practice, consisting of a short introduction and then silence. Enjoy!
