The Art of Meditation
1/2 Day Meditation Workshop
Saturday, Feb, 17, 2018 | 9:45am—1pm
with Kadampa Buddhist nun, Gen Kelsang Ingchug
cost: $20 with preregistration ($25 at the door, free for supporting members)
Improve your meditation experience and increase your overall inner peace. In today’s modern world, we have so many distractions that it is rare to enjoy even a few moments of mental peace. Our ability to focus is challenged on a regular basis. By learning to train in concentration, we can keep a focused and peaceful mind even during our busiest days.
In this workshop, learn a special meditation known as tranquil abiding that will help you increase your concentration, both in and out of meditation. With this new found concentration, you will be able to significantly improve the quality and enjoyment of your meditation practice, develop a flexible and open mind, and accomplish your spiritual goals.
Everyone is welcome.
“When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.” —Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
