Perhaps the most important Natto concept to come out of The School - Befriending wakefulness reviewed in this video. We talk about how insomnia happens when the brain gets confused and starts treating wakefulness as a threat. We talk about how when you teach that wakefulness is a friend, even at night, magic happens!

Insomnia Insight #340: The Secondary Attachment

Uncategorized Sep 24, 2020

In this episode we talk about a key natto concept - the secondary attachment. When you think that you need a certain amount of sleep to make sure your skin looks good, you create a level of pressure that makes sleep very unlikely.

When you deploy education, detective work, thought work and courage - you loosen the attachment and set the stage for refreshing slumber!

Insomnia Insight #339: Got Racing Thoughts?

Uncategorized Sep 17, 2020

In this episode we look at an analogy of you seeing your friend walking towards the train tracks. He is about to cross and doesn't see a train coming his way. You shout and scream to warn him only to be ignored. This escalates your efforts at trying to keep him safe.

He finally turns around and explains what's happening - it's just a scene from a movie. There isn't any real threat.

Seeing that racing thoughts come from your mind trying to warn you, and you trying to not experience those thoughts, we talk about 3 ways to show the brain that you are listening.

1. A thought download.
2. Observing without judgement.

3. Going in your imagination to the place your thoughts are trying to warn you about.
