In this course we will learn many practical techniques for examining our own thoughts and slowly changing the quality of our thoughts, which will help lead us to meditation. The process of focusing inward reveals the patterns in our mind. If we are not aware of how the mind functions, we fall victim to it. We will also cover:
- What is the mind?
- The power of thoughts
- Introduction to the four classical paths of yoga
- Introduction to Vedanta philosophy
Positive Thinking is the practical part of meditation and the preparation for meditation. It is said that we fall into meditation as we fall into sleep. It is not entirely in our control. Swami Vishnudevananda emphasised that the two practices of Positive Thinking and Meditation must be taken together.
This course consists of 5 sessions, 60-minutes each, meeting once a week.
