How to Deal with Alcohol Dependency by Practising Mindfulness Meditation:

A Conversation With Hugh Byrne

 

 

When we let our negative emotions surface, we are allowing ourselves to heal. Practising mindfulness meditation helps us discover these unpleasant feelings in our subconscious minds. It enables people to acknowledge, accept, and let go of past traumatic events and the overwhelming emotions that came with them. Mindfulness meditation empowers us to focus on the now and look positively to the future.

"[Meditation] is like being in the space of aloneness, which is not being lonely".

"What is not brought to consciousness, comes to us as fate". —Carl Jung

"I think with mindfulness meditation, which is not about developing any particular states, but more about being present with what you're feeling, really allowing yourself to feel what you're feeling. There has to be a willingness to feel what you're feeling--- to actually experience something".

"There are so many ways in which we deceive ourselves, you know, “Oh, yeah, I really want to stop”. But then if we're not, you know, surfacing those real underlying things that are there in our unconscious mind, then we're not being real".

"One habit of mindfulness that I call a “bedrock habit” is the practice of meditation. So I would encourage people, if they don't meditate, if they don't have a regular practice, to start in a way that's not necessarily easy, because sometimes five minutes of meditation can be really hard, but to try for even five minutes".
