DHS203 Who Owns Mind?
This quarter’s course introduces tools of analysis and introspection to explore consciousness, looking for the source of thoughts, feelings, impulses, and actions. Using classical insight meditations, students will be guided in a search for an independent self who controls and owns the mind and experience, glimpsing how mind, free of the confines of self, might function. Students will also study teachings on karma and klesha; cultivate the “four immeasurable” qualities of love, compassion, joy, and equanimity; deepen mindfulness; and learn about the Bodhisattva’s aspiration and the role that devotion plays in Dharma study.
Prerequisite: sincere interest in the Buddha’s teachings.
This is the 3rd Quarter of the Path of Liberation Program. Includes associated workshops.
