Seven Weeks: Monday January 24 to Monday 7 March
The Mind and Inner Peace – Thinking Outside the Box
About the Course:
Our mind is with us 24 hours a day every day. It can make us laugh or make us cry. It can cause us to love. It can cause us to hate. It can lead us to bliss or plunge us into sorrow. It can make us happy and destroy that same happiness in an instant. Like a balloon in the wind, we just don’t know where it is going or what is coming next. Stop my mind, I want to get off! Yet we barely know what it is.
We need to start thinking outside the box, to get the bigger picture. What exactly is our mind? How does it work? And how can we control it? With a clearer and better perspective on our mind, life becomes happier, more balanced and moves steadily forward.
Following the advice and wisdom found within Geshe Kelsang’s book: How to Understand the Mind. Gen Kelsang Opel will explain how to use our own mind to make this transformation for ourselves.
