Know your Mind – Buddhism Course

Led by Vajrashura

An In-Person Event

A six-week course exploring Buddhist psychology

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.

Weekly reading material will be provided on the course, however you may wish to supplement this material with the book Mind in Harmony by Subhuti, which is what the course is based on. You can purchase it online from Windhorse Publications in either paperback or in ebook format.

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