A ll things are preceded by the mind, led
by the mind, created by the mind.
(The Dhammapada)
Why is it that no matter how much we
achieve in life we still encounter problems?
Why does that elusive goal of long-lasting
happiness continue to evade us?
From a Buddhist perspective mind is the basis
of our experience – the creator of our
happiness and the creator of our problems
lies within us. Realizing that we’re truly in
control is revolutionary. But how do we
change our minds for the better? How do we
cultivate new thinking habits? How do we
stop listening to negative self-talk?
In this teaching weekend of the first module
of the Discovering Buddhism programme, we
examine what mind is; its nature and
function, and how the mind perceives and
interprets the world around us. Ven. Tsepal
will show us methods to transform
destructive thoughts and attitudes and to
create a positive, joyous mind.
All welcome!
