KNOW YOUR OWN MIND
Oct 8 - Nov 12
How much do you actually understand about your mind - why you feel the way you do, what is going on in your subconscious, how can you control your thoughts?
This course is a great chance to learn about the workings of your own mind by learning about the six root delusions and how to overcome them. Delusions are negative thoughts that destroy our peace and happiness. These negative thought are called root delusions because they are the source of all other negative thoughts. If we learn to recognise and oppose them, there is great hope that we will be able to gain control over our mind and find the clarity and peace we wish for.
On this course each class will include a teaching, guided meditation and discussion designed to clarify your understanding and come to a conclusion about how to put the understanding we have gained into practice.
