MEDITATIONS FOR A CLEAR MIND

Saturday, July 20th · 10am-1pm
Half-Day Retreat with Jen Derwingson-Peacock


The real source of happiness is inner peace. If our mind is peaceful, we will be happy all the time, regardless of external conditions, but if it is disturbed or troubled in any way, we will never be happy, no matter how good our external conditions may be. On this course learn a guided meditation that can be practiced by anyone. With regular practice, these meditations help us to experience mental clarity and inner peace by meditating on our mind itself. Through training in concentration observing our mind we can overcome distractions and come to experience for ourself the inner peace arising from the clarity of the mind. “When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
