DISCOVERING BUDDHISM: Mind and Its Potential

Hybrid Events

Wednesday, 8 September 2021 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Begin with the fundamentals of Buddhist thought and practice – the mind – how it is different from the brain, and how it creates all experience.

Examine what the nature of the mind is, and how it creates all happiness and suffering. Learn to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes to create a positive and joyous mind!

What is “mind,” its nature and function? Come explore the differentiation between mind and brain, mind as the creator of our experiences, and the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. In addition, learn methods to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes and create a positive and joyous mind.
