with Gen Kelsang Chokyi
We tend to identify ourselves with negative states of mind. Perhaps, we are someone who worries or easily gets stressed out. Maybe we have a tendency to certain addictions or are provoked by small inconveniences.
Our problems are like bad weather in the mind, or like clouds in the sky. We all know that when the storms disappear and the clouds fade away, the sky becomes clear, still and bright. We don’t have to make the sky like that; it is like always like that, before and after the stormy weather.
In the same way our mind always has the potential to be peaceful, clear and positive. That is its true nature. We don’t have to force peace into our mind. We just have to understand our own mind and how to uncover its natural potential.
During this retreat, Gen Chokyi will explore “what exactly is my mind?” based on the wisdom of the Mahamudra masters. The retreat will provide us with the opportunity to experience the vast space of mental peace that already exists within all our minds. We will learn how to stop identifying with our mental bad weather and instead with the clarity within our own mind.
Everyone is welcome to come to this retreat; no meditation experience is necessary.
