After sitting and walking meditation, we worked with a reflective meditation technique called Six Ways of Knowing - a way of noticing the stories we tell ourselves so we can see them more clearly. The key, after identifying a challenge in our lives that has produced a recurring story in our mind, is to look at the assumptions, missing information, preconceptions, and other factors that support the story. Then, we find six alternate stories that explain the challenging situation. At each step, we pause to recognize and observe our thinking, reflecting on how you mind is working. The result can be liberating,  showing us both the habitual patterns and judgements as well as the clarity and power of our mind.
