Taming the Wild Elephant Mind

Marianne Nicholls

Why do we attend these courses and teachings? Most of us come seeking some answers about life, wanting to be a better person, or to find a way to being happier and calmer?   What is it that stands in our way of achieving our goals? The answer is simple : It is our mind.
For as long as our mind is uncontrolled, we will continue to have difficulties and problems.  When our mind is uncontrolled, it is under the power of delusions, which make us act in negative ways and we can end up hurting ourselves and others. To get control of our mind we need to learn how to become aware of when negative minds are arising through the practice of mindfulness and alertness. Then once we can notice these minds arising, we need to learn to protect and nurture our mind to become more positive and peaceful.
Buddhist wisdom guides us to the bodhisattva’s path to a training called Moral Discipline, otherwise known as Guarding or Taming the mind.
On this short course we will learn the basics of how to develop mindfulness and how to develop our mind further to cultivate and protect our mind further using these ancient techniques.
