Welcome to The First Turning of the Wheel: The Nature of Mind and Emotions, presented by Lion’s Roar and Naropa University.
More than 2,500 years ago, a young Indian man named Siddhartha sat under a tree and discovered the nature of mind and emotions through meditative investigation. Most of all, he found that conventional views of mind and emotions lead to greater suffering and confusion, while deeper insight into their pattern and nature leads to liberation. In this course, through your own meditative investigation, you will trace these discoveries of the Buddha and cultivate a basic understanding of the foundational teachings of Indian Buddhism.
A few notes about navigating the course:
There will be two live sessions in this course with the instructor. These will be held on May 9 and May 23 at (1pm PT, 4pm ET).
At the end of the course, you can receive a Certificate of Accomplishment. To earn it, you’ll need to watch the videos, complete the short quiz at the end of each week, and participate in the online discussions.
Thank you for choosing this course. We hope you’ll find it engaging and informative.
