We Can Mold our Mind into Any Shape We Want

Sat Apr 2 | 10:00am – 3:00pm MDT
Lunch break: 12:00 – 1:00 PM

One scientist a few years ago said that neuroplasticity “is the greatest finding of the twentieth century.” I’m glad we’re catching up with the Buddha who’s been telling us this for quite a while!

If we could have confidence in this, it would radically change our lives. Right now, instinctively we assume that the anger, the fears, the depression are at the core of our being.

The skill we need to learn is to hear those thoughts and then to change them. But the trouble is we don’t notice what the mind is doing until our body feels it, and that’s too late.

For Buddha, what’s in my mind at this moment is mine, regardless of what triggered it; it’s mine, it’s my jealousy, my love, my compassion. This consciousness is one’s own. Awareness of this gets deeper and deeper and deeper as we go along in our practice. We really learn to own what we think and feel.

And therefore we learn to change it. As Lama Zopa Rinpoche says, “We can mold our mind into any shape we like”.

Public Talk: How to Balance Formal Study and Compassionate Action

Fri Mar 25 | 7:00pm – 8:30pm MDT

Many students find it challenging to figure out how to most effectively combine their study of the Dharma with their wish to put the Dharma into meaningful practice in their everyday life.

While every practitioner has to find the solution that works best for them individually, join long-time student and teacher Jon Landaw as together we explore the various factors to consider when facing this challenge.

All questions and comments are welcome.
