Discovering Buddhism: Turning the Mind Towards Freedom
October 17 @ 10:00 am - October 18 @ 1:00 pm
About the Module
In this module you will learn how to deal skilfully with disturbing emotions like anger, attachment and jealousy. By acknowledging the emotions as they arise and working on them, you transform your state of mind from negative to positive, and avoid harming yourselves and others.
Is this for me?
Anyone can attend! But you’ll get the most benefit if you have a basic knowledge of Buddhism, or if you have attended previous Discovering Buddhism modules.
What can I expect?
This course will include an explanation of the mind, as well as instructions on meditations that work on individual emotions, helping you transform the mind and achieve genuine peace and happiness.

It was specifically created to reflect FPMT wisdom culture and as such is considered a key FPMT program for preserving the teaching and practice lineage of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
