Retreat: Stages of the Path
January 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am
Bringing Meaning into Our Life
On this retreat each day we will explore four meditations from Venerable Geshe la’s book How to Understand the Mind in the section called Meditation, and recite Prayers for Meditation. It is highly recommended that prior to the retreat, you familiarize yourself with these meditations (presented in How to Understand the Mind), and contemplate their meaning.
For each meditation Kelsang Khacho will explain the particular meditation for that session and after the prayers she will guide us to the object. The aim is to control our mind and gain deep levels of inner peace. Everybody, Buddhist or non-Buddhist, can benefit from these meditations because Kadam Dharma accords with people’s everyday experiences.
