"Managing the Ego" A "Come prepared to be challenged!" Workshop

This course is suitable for all: 

  • Any Buddhist who wishes to take a fresh approach to this central topic within Buddhist teachings - helping us to shift ingrained habits and tendencies to operate within a traditional learning structure
  • Any secular or other religious student who is dedicated to self-development and personal change to improve the quality of their inner and outer lives.

There will be some teaching, discussion, meditations and group work. Buddhist teachings are rich in observations and ideas around the ego but there will be an opportunity to consider other ways of understanding these profound psychological concepts and exploring our own experience and views. 

Topics covered:

  • who am I? - a consideration of the "self"
  • what is the "ego"?
  • what is the nature of my mind?
  • how does my ego express itself?
  • methods to manage the ego
