Change Your Mind, Change Your World
The mind is the most powerful agent of change in the world. What we experience in our life reflects the quality of our mind. This 4-part series will emphasize the deeply relaxing and profoundly illuminating meditation on the nature of the mind. Each class will highlight a different way in which we can use this meditation to deepen our understanding of how our minds create our experiences, and consequently how we can creatively and meaningfully relate to both painful and joyful emotions.
Oct 3 ~ THE POWER OF INTENTION
By deepening our understanding of how our minds create our experiences, we begin to relate more meaningfully and positively to both painful and joyful emotions. Register Here for online access.
The teacher will then give a practical teaching based on the book, How to Transform Your Life, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. The teaching will focus on how we can integrate Buddha’s timeless wisdom into our busy daily lives.
