Knowing and Not-Knowing: a Lotus Trilogy course


Lotus Trilogy course based on the book Lotus Mind

Boekomslag Lotus Mind
  • Where is our mind located?
  • What is my mind doing?
  • Is my mind mine?
  • Who thinks when you think?
  • How do we understand the world?
  • How does our mind relate to our perception and senses?
  • What role do space and time, language and body play?

We will investigate these and other questions by means of dialogues, exercises, reflection and research assignments in your everyday life.

This short course of 9 online classes starts on Wednesday, March 3, 7:00 – 8:30 PM (CET), and ends on April 28th.

The course is taught by Elske van de Hulst.

Purchase of the Lotus Mind book (€ 26,- including shipping within Europe) is required.

This course is a good follow-up to the Lotus Language retreat in February, but can also be taken separately.

Between 1969 and 1995, she worked in the theatre as an actress, director and author.
