What is the Intact Mind, and why it’s worth discovering?
It has always struck me that even during times when it appears our minds are “broken” (or “I am damaged,” or “my heart is torn in two” or any other variant of a similar nature), we still have a human experience. It may be a negative experience, but an experience is still being experienced.
What I realized was, “if I have a human experience, doesn’t that prove that something is working?” Meaning, whatever it is producing the human experience, it is not broken. If it was broken, how can an individual experience a human experience?
Suddenly it left me with a dilemma. When I thought things had broken, I needed to begin repairing what I thought was broken. Now the realization that something is working left me wondering two things. What is it that is still working? And why do I want to repair what is not broken?
Hence the name of the event, “Discovering the Intact Mind.” Once we see that the Mind is intact anywhere along the spectrum of human experience, it’s going to change the way we see what’s happening to us. Interestingly, we become much more resilient and psychologically stronger and wiser about all the things we must navigate in our circumstances, events, and people we communicate with.
