Cultivating Inner Stillness: taming the wild mind

a beginners guide to revealing the stillness within (Note: course fee in US dollars) | taught by Peter White PhD

Course description

We live in times of profound upheaval and uncertainty. We are being challenged to navigate our way through confusing mental, emotional and spiritual landscapes with little guidance. But how do you create and remain on your path through this changing landscape when burdened by stress, anxiety and despair? How can you better cope with your fears and uncertainties and cultivate stillness and connection in your life? 

The first step towards creating inner stillness and resilience is to learn how to use your awareness to take control over your responses to external eventsTaking control over your awareness requires learning to use the power of your mind and heart, with the healing power of nature, to help you cope and thrive in this climate of change.

Cultivating Inner Stillness offers a structured, step-by-step process to help you raise and strengthen your awareness. Distilling the knowledge about mindfulness, gratitude and compassion practices into an easy to understand practical course, Peter has created a course for those recognising the need to better cope with life challenges by cultivating their path to inner stillness. 

This course recognises your longing for liberation from the mental and emotional turmoil within to guide you to inner peace.  It provides detailed guidance to develop reflective, contemplative skills within the natural world and its infinite opportunities for healing, insights and connection. Whether you are trying to deal with overwhelming dark thoughts and feelings, or needing to create more peace, love and inner stability in your life, this course will help you. It is an easy to follow, evidence-based program, simply presented with guided audio resources you can download and use anywhere. Make this course your priority in dealing with these challenging times and cultivate the skills to unfold the inner stillness that lies waiting for your awakening.

I developed the NatureConnect Programs for Wellness ten years ago to help clients manage mental health and enrichen life meaning through experiences of inner stillness, spaciousness and connectedness. I have degrees in ecology (BSc), sustainability (MSc) and ecopsychology (PhD). My doctorate research developed a contemplative, consciousness based approach to deepening nature connectedness and it explored its applications, including mental health. 

I offer my expertise, perhaps more importantly my passion, for nature-based contemplative exploration to those seeking deeper experiences of connection for bringing healing and inner peace to their lives. I bring years of practice and exploration of nature-based contemplative practices to offer an authentic, integrated learning approach. I am married with two sons and live in the World Heritage Blue Mountains, Australia where I conduct my face-to-face programs

Both parts of the Title captured me as I desire to deepen the inner stillness that I have experienced within me. I also know the power of the "monkey mind" and am open to anything that will support the "taming" of what can be a continuous distraction to deep stillness.

The text was easy to read without being dull. Its flowing style kept me focused and it nourished what I had already learnt from Peter during face-to-face walking sessions. Sometimes I felt the topics in each section were a little repetitive but this was a good way of "revising" what had already been taught. Each topic built on the one before it and so each section was a valuable teaching, reinforcing and depthing of important facets in the cultivating of inner stillness. The activities, especially the recordings were a valuable gift for the ongoing journey of walking mindfully in nature and in everyday life. Thank you Peter for your perseverance in writing this course, for the sharing of the rich fruits of your own experience of this journey, and for your passion in desiring to share this with many others.
