50hr Buddhism & Mind Training
in Phuket, Thailand
Through meditative practices of concentration and analysis, this training aims to provide a thorough foundation of the Tibetian Buddhist Tradition as it relates to psychology, philosophy and way of life. Our goal is to introduce meditation in a way that is not only understandable but practical and give you the tools you need to incorporate a meditative practice into your life that is both long-lasting and beneficial.
Throughout this course, we will discuss the Buddhist understanding of happiness and suffering and how it differs from our preconceived notions. We will learn tools for controlling our minds in healthy ways, gain a better understanding of our emotions and ways of processing them to become more peaceful happy individuals, and vitally how to share this knowledge and practices with other people around us.
In addition to learning more about ancient practices, we will delve into modern scientific discoveries in the fields of clinical psychology and social sciences and learn about how these spiritual doctrines are becoming more legitimised by new data every day.
