Content of the Course:
This first term of Lotus Mind introduces us to ‘searching, knowing mind’ –the “boss” who judges and frames our experience and weaves the stories that create our identity. Through dialogue and active inquiry, we consider our stances toward thoughts, positioning as perceiver/ observer, as well as the calm and clarity of the yogi Milarepa’s play of ocean-mind. We may open up our potential to new knowledge and liberating ways of engagement.
