Venue: Samye Ling
** FULLY BOOKED **
This time of year is one traditionally to make resolutions to improve quality of life.
Unfortunately, our minds are wild and hard to tame. We think we know everything and it’s all a “done deal.” We believe everything we think.
Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. We have the raw material of unnecessary suffering. We need to work on this to turn it into the path of liberation or, at least, begin to overcome suffering.
At any moment, we have a choice to be true to our inherent spirituality and evolve. If we don’t take the opportunity, we just go round in circles.
Meditation can help us start afresh, “back to zero with fresh intelligence.”
To transform the habits of a life time, three fundamental principles will be shared. The three means are:
- remembering we are a body not so much we have a body;
- secondly to not believe everything we think and transform our relationships with our brain/mind;
- and thirdly we need to learn to have courage, face the situation and accept everything that comes into our experience.
In simple terms, how to be calm, kind, compassionate and joyful in all situations.
