10/14 - Traditional Teachings of the Good Mind

TRADITIONAL TEACHINGS OF THE GOOD MIND A workshop for students, staff, faculty and community members Monday, October 14, 2019 210 Student Union 11am-1pm Light lunch will be served. During this session we will explore universal principles of a Good Mind and the relationships of our minds to thoughts, behaviors and wellbeing. An overview of traditional teachings about a Good Mind will be provided, and an understanding that the opposite of a Good Mind is not a bad or evil mind, but rather a clouded mind. Attendees can learn how to increase awareness of what clouds our minds and how we may rise above or remove the clouds. Finally, we’ll discuss how to maintain our Good Minds and how we can harness our collective power, known as Orenda, when Good Minds come together.
