Know Your Mind: Intro to Buddhist Psychology – Part 3

A two-day Dharma experience with Ven. Sangye Khadro

On Vimeo Livestream and Zoom.
Like all Abbey programs, this retreat is freely offered, and your offerings are welcomed.

About

Ven. Sangye Khadro continues to teach on how we can change the way we think for greater happiness now and in the future.

According to Buddhism, our mind has unlimited potential. It is the source of both the perfect peace and joy of nirvana and awakening, as well as of the misery and problems of samsara (cyclic existence).

In this course we will explore the mind—what it is, how it is different from the brain, some of the different aspects of our mind (i.e. main minds and mental factors), and its conventional and ultimate natures.

We will also learn practical methods to increase the positive aspects of the mind such as compassion and love, and to decrease the disturbing aspects of the mind like anger and craving.

Missed Part 1 or 2? No problem. You can still join and learn much from this weekend course. You can also watch previous course teachings and meditations here.

Attend Online

To attend in person

As of August 23, the Abbey is once again closed to in-person guest visits until further notice. This is in response to the surge of Covid Delta variant infections and Washington’s statewide efforts to control the spread. Please join us online for this retreat.
