There’s a mean, judgmental voice in our head that never shuts up. It’s the Inner Critic, our worst nightmare playing day and night creating stress, worry, anxiety and confusion. The good news is that with mindfulness we can identify and inquire into these destructive thoughts so they lose their power to cause suffering, so that we can really find peace in ourselves and in the world.
