with Gen Kelsang Chokyi

We all know that stressing out about things just makes them worse. And yet we also feel like we have no choice but to stress and worry about the crises and pressures we are facing at the moment. 

Actually, our stress does not come from the external situation, but rather from our response to it. Stress comes from our mind. If there were a method to ‘drop out’ of a stressed mind and into a clear and peaceful one, wouldn’t you use it? And if we could learn how to respond to problems differently, in a more centered, flexible and effective way, wouldn’t you want that?

Using Buddha’s profound insights into the mind, Gen Chokyi will uncover:

1. where our stressful response comes from
2. how can we let go of that mistaken perception
3. how to gain familiarity with letting go of stress in daily life

Join us for a half-day retreat to practice the art of dropping out of stressful states of mind, and absorbing into the experience of inner peace.

Suitable for beginners and experienced meditators alike. Everyone can benefit from these timeless teachings that are practical and modern. Everyone is welcome!

This mini meditation retreat is led by Gen Kelsang Chokyi, Resident Teacher at KMC Bloomington.
