Philosophy & Presence of Mind (Part 4)

Finding peace and wisdom in the present moment is the theme of this course. Inquiry is guided by the principle "using wisdom to extract nectar from poison", in daily life.

Plato's analogy of the cave is the backdrop for realizing the truth about any situation and participants share lessons learnt by trusting the present moment.

Presence of mind shines light on effective decision making and the nature of criticism. Tools and strategies for nourishing the mind are presented as well as practical tips for getting in touch with the present.
