Long before the discoveries of contemporary neuroscience and psychology, the Buddha gained insight into the nature of mind. In early Buddhism this profound insight informed the Abhidharma – a 'training manual' to help us understand and transform our own minds.

The Abhidharma helps us come to appreciation of how mental states arise, and how to distinguish between skilful mental states and their opposites. In this way, we are given the means to live a happier and more fruitful life, and ultimately a pathway to liberation from all suffering.

And most importantly, we are given a language with which to talk about, notice and analyse the mental states we get into during our day.

We are also offered a glimpse of how the enlightened mind of a Buddha works – the mind in its ultimate harmony.

This six week course will explore all this, using Subhuti’s excellent new book Mind in Harmony as a stimulating guide for our journey (a copy of this book will be included in the course).

Suitable for: Open to anyone who has learnt to meditate with us with an interest in Buddhism.

Note there will be no class on Thursday 6th July 2017.

Cost: €125 waged / €105 low-waged / €75 unwaged or student.
