Class Topics

Course Description

We have in our mind many underlying assumptions that govern our life and behaviour – these are like the default mechanisms of our mind.

These assumptions are our habitual ways of thinking, but are largely unexamined; we have little or no evidence to support them as being true… and yet, they govern and guide our behaviour, our life and how we relate to our world. Since many of them contradict the knowledge we possess, they mislead us and cause us many problems, and obstruct our ability to fulfil our deepest wishes to be happy and to avoid suffering. So we will examine and challenge some of these mistaken habits of mind, see the real and practical consequences of them, contemplate and meditate so that we can dislodge them and replace them with assumptions that will not mislead us, but will guide us steadily towards greater happiness and freedom.
