How to Understand the Mind

A Meditation Half Day Course

Sat 14 October · 9.30am–1pm · $40/$30

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. Buddha’s teachings 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 both happiness and suffering. How the world appears to us depends upon the mind, understanding this, if we change our mind, we literally change everything.

By 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. Gaining control over our mind and learning to harness its power we are able to find real freedom and happiness.
