Roadmap of Buddhist Fundamentals course highlighting the 4 reminders - motivations to practice

The 6th Stage in Your Journey to Liberation

In Level 6 we go deeper into wisdom teachings with an overview of the fundamental insights of Buddhism. Contemplating the 4 seals and the 4 reminders affirms our decision and deepens our commitment to take refuge in the Buddhist path. We are reminded of the preciousness of this life and the truths of existence that increase or motivation for evolution and transformation.

  • Embrace impermanence not as a negative, but as the key to freedom
  • Understand why we see things as we do, not as they actually are
  • Unwind the belief that things exist independently in just one way
  • Practice authentic renunciation without giving up a single object
  • Let go of seeking contentment in things that cannot provide it
  • See how to be grounded, at peace, despite what happens around you

Susan – Writer and Artist

I recently completed the nine-level Journey to Wellbeing and it has profoundly changed my life. I’ve learned to calm my mind with clear, practical instructions on how to let go and not react to my emotions. This is the first time I’ve truly understood mindfulness and have seen real change in my behavior and relationships. It’s a gift I won’t waste.

The meditation practice is very freeing. I can just be where I am in the moment. In contrast to so many practices I’ve tried, it encompasses how to deal with emotions with a greater awareness of the human condition.

Mindworks has made a big difference in my life!

Alice has greatly appreciated Mindworks courses

Your team and your courses have changed mine and my family’s life for the better. I am truly humbled by how we have not only weathered some challenging situations but in the course of deepening our understanding of ourselves, we have come out the other side stronger than before. Thank you for showing me how to love life again; and even more so during challenging times.
