From Craving to Contentment
SAT, May 28 | 10am - 1pm
Gen Kelsang Chokyi
When our mind develops a pleasant feeling associated with food, a person, place or experience— we want more. When are we satiated with contentment? Is it ever enough?
We normally project intrinsically desirable labels to our external world, and if we don't understand how our mind is creating this desire or craving it leads to suffering. This suffering can be physical and mental. However, when our mind is free from the turbulence of distracting conceptions it becomes calm and smooth. When we are enjoying internal peace and happiness our craving for external sources of pleasure naturally declines and it is easy to remain content. Come explore powerful meditations to connect to contentment.
This workshop is suitable for everyone and includes teaching and time for meditation. Registration is below.
