In this module you will explore the differentiation between mind and brain, mind as the creator of our experiences, and the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. In addition, you will learn methods to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes and create a positive and joyous mind.

One module will be offered each weekend, The Saturday will consist of teachings given by Geshe Namdak. The Sunday morning will consist of group discussions, a Q&A session and a guided meditation. Those who wish to study individual modules can attend both days or only Saturday.
