Exploring Buddhism Module 1
New FPMT Course with Don Handrick
Tuesdays, Sept. 7th – Oct. 12th, 2021

The Buddha said that the source of all happiness and suffering is the mind. In light of this fundamental teaching, it is essential that we develop an extensive understanding of the mind, then utilize that knowledge to create the causes for our own and other’s well-being. In this module, we will look at what the mind is and how it works, as presented in both Buddhism and science. We will explore the different ways to distinguish and classify various kinds of consciousness; and investigate how to reduce destructive states of mind, and generate the constructive ones which can lead us on the path to enlightenment.
