Workshop with TY Alexander – Mind and Meditation

06/05/2023 @ 9:00 am - 07/05/2023 @ 4:00 pm AEST

TY for weekend course

The Question Is…

Who are we? What do we want?  Where are we going? How do we get there? Do we have what it takes?

These are some of the questions we will look at during this weekend workshop. If Buddhism is indeed a ‘spiritual’ tradition, what’s ‘mind’ got to do with it? We’ll look at what mind is and how it’s related to spiritual growth and awakening – the ultimate attainment of buddhahood. 

What is buddhahood anyway?

Discussing possibilities, then engaging in meditation to delve into these questions…and possibly generate doubt and some more questions…will be the tasks of this weekend workshop. 

There’ll be some conversation, some Q&A, and lots of meditation. It is suitable for practitioners at any level, including (especially) first-time beginners. Just bring your body and mind.
