Teflon Mind

Teflon is a coating applied to metal pans which prevents foods from sticking to the pan. It lets eggs and pancakes slide out of the pan when they have been cooked. Like this magical coating, a teflon mind allow experiences, feelings, and thoughts that come into our mind to slip right out without leaving any traces or wounds. A teflon mind allows us let go of troubling thoughts that would otherwise stick to your mind. Teflon Mind is a way to disregard otherwise painful thoughts or intense sensations without allowing ourselves to get pulled and stuck to them. The goal is to observe and notice our experience in a nonjudgmental way, without reacting, and then letting go.
