Selfishness & its Transformations in Self-Knowledge

With our third meeting in 2024 (4th February) we’ll begin a nine-week series on The Psychology of a Healthy Mind. In this course, I want to convey the value of Buddhist psychology to human flourishing, and to do that in very practical terms. For this course, we’ll focus on the Buddha’s vision of transformation as presented in the Nikayas.

My contention is that, if we have a regular meditation practice and if we are already both awakening and growing in the light of the Buddhadharma, then we are already – in our own way – doing something of what the formal Buddhist psychologies are designed for. The question then is what can we apply from the Buddhist understanding which will have us practising more skilfully, joyfully, and effectively?
