The Buddha said that healing essentially comes from the mind. Therefore it’s important for us to understand the nature of the mind - its purity and its separateness from the faults that cause mental and physical illness, and suffering.
We now live in a very hectic modern world where there are many pressures and anxieties from different directions. On this weekend course we will investigate how mental habits such as selfishness, fear and anxiety are temporary and can be removed.
You will learn to cultivate positive attitudes like compassion, self-acceptance, courage and forgiveness, which are the real inner medicines that heal our minds and the cause of our problems.
The Buddhist perspective is that we are not victims of our world, but the world is created by our view and our actions. Therefore, we need to understand the mind and our actions, and realize how destructive emotions take advantage of the mind.
Once we understand the clarity and empty nature of the mind and the emptiness of the delusions, we can start to change our perception of the world and our reactions to whatever we experience.
