What is mind? Is it a product of the world or is the world a product of the mind? Does mind occupy space, or is space created by mind? These types of questions may have given rise to interesting speculative considerations, but within Buddha’s teachings we can find clear and extraordinarily beneficial answers.
Through following the practices known as Mahamudra we can learn to experience the nature of our mind directly in meditation. What we discover is a limitless mind, in particular a mind of limitless potential, capable of universal love, profound wisdom, and unceasing joy.
In this course, France will guide us in simple but profound meditations on the mind, through which we can experience its limitless and pure nature for ourselves. This experience will enable us to understand experientially our potential for transformation, and how changing our mind will change our world.

The Happiness Course
Everyone wants to be happy but so few people actually are. We may not even believe that lasting happiness is possible. Buddha’s teachings give us a swift and direct method to help us to attain the happiness that we all long for, and that is our actual nature.
During this course, based on the special arrangement of meditations known as lam rim, we will learn how to connect to our potential for inner peace, love and freedom and begin our journey to a happiness we hardly knew existed.
