Term: September 25 and 26
This weekend course will invite students to look at “the self” and ” the mind” from a Buddhist perspective —both what they are and what they are not, in order to gain more control and energy for our positive aspirations and long-term goals.
From a Mahayana Buddhist perspective, by understanding our potential we eventually realize that the mind can be so thoroughly trained out of suffering and negative emotions and into deep contentment and altruism that we actually can become buddhas ourselves. Our spiritual practice then becomes an enriching experience, benefitting oneself as well as society and the environment.
The course will include guided meditations and time for questions and discussion.
