Meditation is a scientific method to improve our human nature and inner qualities. Effective meditation can solve our inner problems of depression, anxiety and confusion about the purpose and meaning of our life. In this course we will explore ancient yet deeply relevant Buddhist preliminary practices that create the mental environment in which meditation can be experienced as truly transformative.

Almost no one in modern society truly understands the nature of consciousness. Buddha was a master of the mind, and revealed its nature, function and how to access our limitless potential for transcendent peace and meaning. This course will provide an experiential, meditative framework for discovering the power and potential of our own mind.
