Meditation: Pathway to understanding the mind

This course introduces some of the key concepts of what is known as "Inner Education".

 

This is founded on the principle that we have a hidden, inner nature that needs nourishment and attention if we are to truly address the challenges we face in our daily lives.

The course draws on the principles of the great traditions from the East and West, which, when put into practice, allows us to realize our true potential as human beings.
