Mind Over Matter

Mind Over Matter – Half Day Course
Saturday 7 May | In-Person | Online

Every day our mind creates many different realities, some of which bring us a sense of joy and freedom, and others that are limiting, and even painful. At this half day course Kelsang Monlam will explain the profound connection between our mind and the world we experience. Understanding the power our mind has to create, gives us confidence to create the life we want.
Buddha taught that the mind is the creator of everything, including our experiences of happiness and suffering. How the world appears to us depends entirely upon the mind. Because everything depends upon our mind, if we change our mind, we literally change everything.
Through contemplating and meditating on Buddha’s wisdom teachings on emptiness we come to know the illusory nature of things and they lose their power over us. We start to see in our own experience how things don’t exist in the fixed and solid way they appear. Gaining control over our mind and learning to harness its power, we find real freedom and happiness.
