Nature of Mind 
Buddhist practitioners in conversation with Western psychologists, neuroscientists, and philosophers. Come and join the conversation - all welcome!

The mind is our most valuable asset and our most dangerous possession. It can be amazingly creative or terrifyingly destructive. Every experience we have, or could possibly have, is mediated through the mind. From a Buddhist point of view our greatest danger is not realising the potential of our mind, and not finding ways of living out that potential.

A 6-month season of events featuring prominent psychologists, neuroscientists, and meditators; including interactive seminars, meditation masterclasses, and retreats. Open to all. Some events are at Croydon Buddhist Centre, some are online from Adhisthana, London Buddhist Centre, and other locations.
