Theme

Five Powers of the Mind: The Buddha emphasised the importance of developing these Five Powers of the Mind. We will start with an overview, and then explore and develop one power per month.

Five Powers of the Mind are:

  1. Trust/ Confidence. The Buddha shifted from faith to trust/confidence
  2. Energy. Physical/mental/emotional energy has a significant influence upon us – whether high, low or between. 
  3. Mindfulness includes the ability to observe, to remember and see clearly
  4. Concentration/Unification of Mind. Concentration includes the capacity to stay focused on what matters/harmony/well-being
  5. Wisdom. Wisdom means to understand. Understanding means dissolution of suffering, of problematic issues
