How to Tame Your Mind

Teachings from Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully

For many people, the tendency in the mind for negativity and suffering is strong while the tendency for peace and happiness is weak. Through training in the techniques taught by Buddha, this situation can be reversed.

By developing a regular practice of meditation and mindfulness, the mind can be brought under control so that it functions to make us happy instead of suffering.

In this weekly meditation series, learn and practice techniques to tame your mind. Through following Buddha's precious teachings, you will be able to transform your mind into a true source of peace and happiness.


CLASS STRUCTURE

Each class includes guided meditations, teaching, and time for Q&A (not available for online-only classes). A brief introduction of the topic will be presented followed by a guided meditation to settle the mind, the main teaching, and a closing guided meditation.

The main teaching will cover the class topic. It includes an explanation of Buddhist practices and methods to apply them to your daily life through meditation, contemplation, and effort. Reference to particular pages in books may be offered. It is not necessary to have the coursebook in order to benefit, but you may find it helpful. Further reading is always encouraged.

Each teaching ends with another guided meditation specifically to help students take the teaching to heart and be able to begin to practice on their own what they’ve learned in class.

Classes will be posted weekly throughout the course and will remain available for viewing for the length of the series. This course is suitable for all levels of experience.

Although it is beneficial to attend the entire series, you may drop in at any time. Classes are held weekly. Suitable for all levels of experience.


ABOUT THE BOOK
We are alive, therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence, yet very few of us have really come to terms with this fact. Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully is an inspiring book that helps us to make the most of our human life, to prepare for death and to help others who are dying. In this way, instead of something to be feared or denied, death can become a positive experience.

Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully can be purchased from our bookstore. Please contact our Treasurer, Brian Worthen, for details: 505-999-8656. It can also be purchased online at Tharpa.com.
