Anxiety is a feeling that is coming from within our mind. But what is causing this feeling? How can we control our mind if we don’t understand what it is? By understanding our mind, we can begin to train in developing and maintaining a light, positive mind and thereby overcome feelings of anxiety, worry, and stress.
In this weekly meditation series, we will exploring the book How to Understand the Mind in order to understand the way in which the mind functions and how this directly relates to our feelings, thoughts, and actions. Within this book, we will look closely at topics like mental factors, delusions, and conceptual and non-conceptual minds and gain a better understanding of our mind. Then, we can begin to change our experiences by abandoning states of mind that harm us and replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones.
How to Understand the Mind 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.
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.
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 and ways to apply them to your daily life through meditation, contemplation, and effort.
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 owned what they’ve learned in class.
