This eleven week course focuses on the last two foundations of mindfulness outlined by the Buddha. With mindfulness of the mind and mental qualities, the Buddha invites us to notice whether the mind is with or without greed, with or without anger, and with or without delusion. We learn to discern the qualities of the mind in any moment; contracted, distracted, open and or settled. Learning to acknowledge the shape of the mind is the first step toward freeing the mind from the weight of attachment. In these teachings the Buddha encourages us to study the mind in terms of skillful frames that illuminate the moment to moment skillfulness or unskillfulness of the mind’s activity.
