Developing an Understanding of Mind


A series of online meditation sessions to establish the ground of perception in actual experience.

Our mind is at work, moment to moment in every experience, yet for most of us, the activity of mind is in the background, unseen. A central goal of meditation is to begin to generate awareness of how such experience is made. Happiness, sadness, success, failure, fame and blame all lie within our experience, but may be in themselves not what they seem. This progressive series of ten half-hour meditations is to begin to develop a practice so we can develop a deeper understanding of who we are, and create the possibility for genuine change.

We are honored to have Guest Teacher Dr. Richard Dixey of Dharma College in Berkeley, California, who is a scientist and Buddhist scholar, originally from England.
