Human Potential Development Talks - PERCEPTION, INTENTION, EXPECTATION (For non muslim only)

Dear Brothers & Sisters

Sukhihotu. We invite you to the following talk by Bro Billy. Details as follows:-

TITLE              :           PERCEPTION, INTENTION, EXPECTATION
DATE              :           6th AUGUST 2011

VENUE          :           Ti-Ratana Penchala Shrine Hall

OBJECTIVE


To help us understand our how our thoughts and emotions interact to form our Perception of the world around us, and how Intentions and Expectations motivate our behaviour. We apply this learning from a Buddhist perspective to help us experience greater happiness and peace of mind.

SYNOPSIS


How do we perceive the world through our senses? What motivates us to behave in certain ways? Why do we sometimes react emotionally while other times we can remain calm and rational? Whether we become happy, or unhappy, this has a lot to do with our Perception of the world around us, as well as our Intentions and our Expectations in everyday life.

The speaker first explains some of the happenings inside our mind and body from a psychological perspective – how Perceptions are formed, how emotions are aroused, how we become motivated to take action, and what happens to our physiology when we are emotionally aroused.

The speaker then relates latest findings in Psychology and Neuroscience with key aspects of Buddhist teachings such as of “karma”, “vipaka”, the 5 Aggregates, and the 6 Sensual Fields.

Video of research findings from the fields of Psychology and Neuroscience help enhance the presentation.
