Heart of Buddhist Meditation–Bare Attention

Topics Include: 1) Understanding Buddhism as a kind of “mind science” in terms of understanding how the mind works to create suffering and how by understanding the mind we can free ourselves from suffering. 2) The concept of “bare attention”: the clear and single minded awareness of what actually happens to us and in us. 3) Learning how to stay with bare awareness and eliminating the self referential associative thinking that comes with initial awareness. 4) How, because of our associative thinking, we do not see the world as it actually is. 5) The goal of knowing the mind: the attainment of lucidity and penetrative insight. The example of microscopic research. 6) Learning how to see interconnectedness and developing beginner’s mind.
