2500 years ago, Buddha taught meditation and inner inquiry as a revolutionary practice; Training the mind and freeing the heart to turn against the streams of greed, negativity and confusion that we see habitually affecting both our own inner lives, and driving the dominant forces of society. How can we genuinely explore and deeply understand how these currents and habits operate, so as to find an inner freedom and ease, and to make a wise and effective response to the world we live in?
