Taming the Wild Elephant Mind
SAT, July 9 | 10am - 1pm
Senior Kadampa Teacher
Since we all have within us our own source of peace and happiness, we may wonder why it is so hard to maintain a continually peaceful and joyful mind. This is because of the delusions that so often crowd our mind. Delusions are distorted ways of looking at ourself, other people and the world around us – like a distorted mirror they reflect a distorted world. Kadam Tom will explore methods to tame our wild elephant minds so that we can connect with the inner peace that is residing within each one of us.
This workshop is suitable for everyone and includes teaching and time for meditation. Registration is below.
