Under denna retreat kommer vi att integrera meditationsövningar för att odla ett lugnt och fokuserat sinne med de analytiska meditationerna frÄn Discovering Buddhism-modulen Sinnet och dess potential. 

För deltagare i kursen Discovering Buddhism Àr retreaten en möjlighet att bÄde repetera  och fördjupa de metoder som behandlats under kursen. För andra deltagare Àr retreaten en möjlighet att fÄ en praktisk och upplevelsebaserad introduktion till dessa metoder.

Undersök betydelsen av “sinnet” enligt buddhismen, dess natur och funktion och hur det avgör vĂ„r upplevelse av lycka och lidande. Utforska skillnaden mellan sinnet och hjĂ€rnan, hur sinnet skapar vĂ„ra upplevelser och konsekvenserna av att ha ett sinne som inte har nĂ„gon början eller slut. LĂ€r dig metoder för att omvandla icke-konstruktiva tankar och attityder och utveckla ett mer positivt och lyckligare sinne.

Titta djupt in i ditt eget sinne för att upptÀcka dess natur, dess funktioner och dess djupaste potential. Var beredd att undersöka de speciella tankesÀtt som skapas av din kultur och samhÀlle, utbildning, religiös bakgrund och miljö och den uppfostran du har haft i din familj.

During this retreat we will integrate meditation practices to cultivate a calm and focused mind with the analytical meditations from the Discovering Buddhism module Mind and its Potential. 

For participants of the Discovering Buddhism course this provides an opportunity to both review and deepen the practices covered in the module. For other participants it provides an opportunity to have a very practical and experiential overview of and introduction to these practices.

Examine the meaning of “mind” according to Buddhism, its nature and function, and how it determines our experience of happiness and suffering. Explore the differentiation between mind and brain, how mind is the creator of our experiences, and the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. Learn methods to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes and develop a more positive and joyous mind.

Be prepared to look deeply into your own mind to discover its nature, its functions and the profound depth of its potential. Be prepared to look into the particular mind-set generated by your culture and society, education, religious background and environment, and the upbringing you have had within your family.
