A Meditation course for Clarity

This is a unique open course to guide you to explore the inner world to understand the mind. This course aims at preparing you for an independent inner exploration, no methods, no system, no doctrines to follow, it is you alone that explore and understand the nature of mind, getting the clarity, which is the ultimate key to all kinds of confusions and mental challenges and solution to a peaceful, calm and joyful life.

Most people are living in this world with a fragmented mind, exemplified by the self-centered activities, totally confused about life and existence, which leads to all kinds of life challenges. To overcome these challenges, people keep seeking all kinds of solutions in vain, without questioning why these challenges exist. The answer is never external, so seeking is no help; actually, the solution lies in the problem itself, which means, if one sees life clearly, that clarity clears all the fusses and confusion, then there is no problem, so solution is not needed; that’s why clarity is the ultimate key to all life challenges.

To get this clarity, one has to understand oneself deeply, understand the whole structure of the thoughts and the content of the consciousness. And this journey is meditation, and this course is to help you get on this marvelous journey to understand the self and live a life without illusion.

Besides the general and flexible meditation technique, this course will share with you the essence of life and nature of mind, which is also the quintessence of Chan Buddhism (Huineng), Taoism (Laozi, Zhuangzi) and Jiddu Krishnamurti’s teaching. The course will focus on the neural perspectives and only uses simple English to thoroughly explain everything. This course has no traditions, systems, doctrines to share, but just points out the things that matter to the inner exploration. It is up to one to be independent and free to explore and perceive the truth of mind.

This course is both philosophical and practical. Being practical means meditation technique helps quieten the neurons, for a quiet mind to make the observance possible, Being philosophical means to get insight about the mind based on the observance and true logic, which in reverse helps quieten the mind; this synergy will lead to the change of the neural structure of the mind and bring the clarity.
