How to Understand our Mind

Tuesdays • 7 – 8:30 pm

GP2014Fall-How to understand the mind

This fall, immerse yourself in the inner journey of your own mind. Each Tuesday, Gen Chögyan will teach on one particular aspect of our mind and help us understand its different parts and how it functions. We will thereby be able to identify and abandon the types of minds that lead to unhappiness and cultivate the ones that lead to happiness.

These classes are based on the most recent book of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso: How to Understand the Mind.

Benefits you will receive in your daily life:

1. React to challenging daily situations in a more skillful and relaxed way
2. Break powerful bad habits of mind that lead to your daily unhappiness
3. Improve your concentration in all your daily activities
4. Gain confidence in yourself and your actions
