Most people want a peaceful happy life. These three principles help to make it happen. Simple, practical purification meditations will be shared and explained. These will help us purify our streams of consciousness so that we are less agitated and more capable of enjoying our lives.Â
To let go does not mean, â€śI get rid of.â€ť It is much more subtle. To let go means to be able to let be with wisdom and kindness, allowing new things to arise. If we leave our thoughts alone, to some degree, they will leave us alone. Of course, this is â€ścontext specific.â€ť Letting go is not so wise for mountain climbers! This weekend will also introduce the ideas of deep-rooted acceptance that is necessary because of our tendency to resist pain that causes us so much intense suffering. Life is hard, to be human is very difficult but we can train the mind to face and cope with whatever arises. The essence is what attitude we hold to whatever â€śweatherâ€ť is going on either outside or within us. That essence is kindness.
There is no fee for this course although donations are welcome. Your offering will help with the Monastery's considerable running costs, as well as the expenses incurred in inviting teachers.Â Donations may be made in the Reception Office.Tariff and Charges Guest Info
