Mindfulness — A Starting Point (MSP)
Exploring mind-body through Right Views and Skilful Attitude
Mindfulness (Awareness) Meditation is mind-work to transform the mind through Right Views and Skilful Attitude. It is NOT work done by the body/posture nor by objects/experiences. You will be trained to develop wisdom-based wholesome states of mind which leads to a stress-free life. It is as simple as realizing what is already found in the Now, yet unnoticed at this moment.
We are conditioned to react to external stimuli—from the people we meet to situations we are faced with. These external factors seemingly influence or determine our “moods”, “happiness” or “unhappiness”. Yet is that true?
Through this course, you will learn, explore and realise for yourself the views and attitudes that are blocking you from within. With the introduction of the “3-Yogi-Jobs” (3YJ) starting with Wise View and Skilful Attitude, you will find undoing old conditioning a breeze and that would ultimately lead you to true and lasting peace, freedom and happiness.
In this course, your mind will be wisely conditioned towards:
start a daily meditation practice
develop Wise Views and Skilful Attitude
assimilate supportive information on mechanics/workings and nature of the mind
begin to know the causes of issues/problems and work with those causes (instead of fixing the effects)
explore basic knowledge of Mindfulness
WHO COULD ATTEND Suitable for ages 16 and above.
The first session of this course sets the crucial foundation for the entire course; for those who are not able to make it for the first session, please consider joining the subsequent course season.
Prior registration is required.
