Free for members.
What tools can we use to better train our mind towards balance, stability and inner peace? How does meditation help us to let go of stress and worry so that we can live a life with wisdom and a sense of joy and meaning?
Understanding some basic preliminary practices along with tools on how to settle and focus the mind, we can start to make space for better decision-making and build a reliable source of refuge, clarity and inner peace in our own mind regardless of external circumstances.
“Only by creating peace within our own mind and helping others do the same can we hope to achieve peace in this world.” – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
This workshop will provide practical instruction on preliminary meditation practices and the stages of concentration. The session will also include guided meditations on the breath and the clarity of the mind.
Feel free to stay afterwards for a free family friendly open house starting at 1pm. More information below.
