DHS203 Who Owns Mind? Quarter Three of the Path of Liberation Program


This quarter’s course introduces tools of analysis and introspection to explore consciousness, looking for the source of thoughts, feelings, impulses, and actions. Using classical insight meditations, students will be guided in a search for an independent self who controls and owns the mind and experience, glimpsing how mind, free of the confines of self, might function. Students will also study teachings on karma and klesha; cultivate the “four immeasurable” qualities of love, compassion, joy, and equanimity; deepen mindfulness; and learn about the Bodhisattva’s aspiration and the role that devotion plays in Dharma study.

Students are encouraged to attend the associated and included workshops “Question of Identity: Ten Kinds of Self (DHS405)” on October 20–21: Friday 7–9 PM; Saturday 10 AM–4:45 PM and “Cultivating Unlimited Love” (DHS406)” December 2; Saturday 10 AM–4:45 PM.

Prerequisite: sincere interest in the Buddha’s teachings.
