Do you ever feel that your mind is like a wild elephant, your thoughts running back and forth uncontrolled? The great Indian Buddhist master Shantideva reminds us that a wild elephant loose in a populated area will cause massive destruction, but an uncontrolled wild mind can cause even more harm. This course will cover mind-training techniques taught by Buddha, giving us the tools we need to experience mental freedom and joy. Topics will include: Our Mind and the Role of Meditation, Where do Negative Emotions Come From?, Taming our Delusions, and Cultivating a Peaceful, Positive Mind.
