The study of Buddhism is the study of your mind, or consciousness.
Knowing the mind is fundamental to your understanding of all the teachings and methodologies that have come down to us from the Buddha himself, and all the other teachers who have followed in his wake.
That is the reason this is the first course in our yearly program.
In this module you willl examine the meaning of “mind” according to Buddhism, its nature and function, and how it determines our experience of happiness and suffering. Explore the differentiation between mind and brain, how mind is the creator of our experiences, and the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. Learn methods to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes and develop a more positive and joyous mind.
