Explore a Path to Healing and Well-Being From Two Great Sciences of Mind

Our mind’s habitual thought patterns can lead to a fixed sense of self, overwhelming feelings, and psychological suffering of all kinds. When we understand how the mind works, we can learn to let go of misconceptions about the nature of self and cultivate peace.

To work with our minds, lessen suffering, and enjoy happy, meaningful lives—this is the goal of both the timeless teachings of Buddhism and the modern science of psychology. In this course, you’ll explore the fascinating intersection of these two great sciences of mind.

Led by 12 renowned psychologists and Buddhist teachers in a series of practical workshops, the course offers a healing path for the whole person, addressing the needs of the mind, body, and heart. 

By delving deeper into the roots of individual and collective suffering, you will learn to tend to your own pain with awareness and self-compassion while cultivating a deeper appreciation of the fundamental goodness of all human beings.

The curriculum offers a solid foundation of insight and practical tools for cultivating a healthy mind for greater well-being. The course material also has value for therapists, counselors, and other helping professionals who want to offer the benefits of Buddhist-inspired practices to their clients.

“A good therapy uses the basic understanding that we are free. That’s who we are, our true nature, our buddhanature.”

Jack Kornfield
