You and Your Mind: Healing and Transforming with Buddhist Psychology | Hybrid (in person and online)

The key to our greater sanity and love begins with how we receive our world—how we sense it and how we process it. Maybe we wonder: How do we let the world become and enemy… or a friend?

Meditators have looked at this question for 2,600 years and say with complete confidence that you can see for yourself how all your joys and fears rise and fall. Discover for yourself how this investigation can restore our relationship to the world and heal our connection with natural goodness and wisdom.

We will cover:

  • The ayatanas (the senses)—Talk about interesting! Introduce yourself to how sense perceptions either brighten our world or get snared by thoughts and habits.
  • The skandha system—how a thought or impression grows into likes or dislikes, hopes or fears. 2,600 years of meditation reportage breaks it down for us to see how to stay awake, joyful and sane.
  • Fear and the birth of ego—how the mirror of meditation helps us to lead a good human life.

Join us in person for this series of three Wednesday night classes and one Sunday Training (half) Day. If that’s not possible, join us online! (Zoom link will be sent after your registration has been processed. Please check your spam folder if you don’t see it.)

We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please consider what works for you, and offer as much of the program fee as you can. 

Please email [email protected] with questions.

These sessions will be led by Alan Anderson, longtime meditation teacher, even longer-time meditation student, co-founder of Windhorse Retreat Center, and award-winning author of When Bad Lands: How Not to Numb Out, Freak Out, or Bottom Out—Buddhist Style.
