POSTPONED: The Nature of the Mind

From June 23, 10:00 am until June 24, 12:00 pm

Overview:

What is the nature and function of the mind? What's the relationship between the mind and our experience of happiness and suffering? We will explore questions such as these as well as the difference between the mind and the brain, and the notion of mind as the creator of our experiences. We will discuss the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. Finally, we will learn methods to transform our negative thoughts and attitudes, and uncover the tools we can use to create a positive and joyous mind. The workshop includes discussion and meditations on the nature of mind.
