Settling the Mind Workshop
SAT, August 27
Gen Kelsang Chokyi
What is mindfulness and alertness and how do they function to settle our mind? In this workshop, Gen Chokyi will explore the power of mindfulness and alertness to make our meditation practice formally and in daily life function to keep the mind balanced and peaceful. Through training our mind we can control our thoughts from wandering off during meditation into meaningless or even harmful thoughts and instead focus our mind in a beneficially and positive way.
“Just as a potter needs two hands to shape his wares, so do we need mindfulness and alertness if we are to meditate properly
and gain realizations along the spiritual path.”
This workshop is suitable for everyone and includes teaching and time for meditation.
Registration is below.
