From Philippe Goldin's presentation this weekend at El Camino Hospital (an event benefitting Bob Stahl's MBSR scholarship program), I found the following slide on 'Self-Focused Processing' particularly useful:
Conceptual or narrative self:
- fixed self-concept
Experiential or embodied self:
- present-moment focused
- continuously changing experience of self
- reduced problems with depression, anxiety, etc . . .
A 21st century version of the teachings on anatta . . . with a focus on the health benefits of an experiential view of the self.
