What would it be like if mind was your best friend, providing knowledge, nourishment, and caring under all circumstances? In this course, we’ll begin to see how important mind is to our lives, yet how often it rules us like a tyrant. As we begin gently to explore our inner experience, we naturally start to make the mind our dearest companion. No prerequisites; open to all! This course provides all the introduction you’ll need to take a Level 2 Dharma College course in January, 2023.
Classes meet online for six weeks, for one hour a week. Classes are recorded and you will have access to the recordings for your personal use only. Each week, there will be a short lecture followed by experiential exercises and discussion. Weekly handouts will provide inspirational readings. An online chat room gives you the optional ability to meet and dialog with your fellow students.
