Online: Beautifying the mind with Ven Canda
9 May 2021 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
This online retreat will be held via zoom. Please register via the tickets below and you will be sent a zoom link on the evening of Sat 8th May.
Do you sometimes find meditation difficult or frustrating – and trying harder doesn’t work?
Fortunately, the Buddha knew that because the mind is conditioned, it can be trained. There is nothing wrong with you; most often, obstacles arise simply because we haven’t put enough preparation in place.
This retreat will explore wise ways of using thought and perception in daily life to beautify and uplift the heart with qualities like gratitude, patience, forgiveness and peace. We will also draw out the often overlooked aspect of mindfulness as “Gatekeeper” and discuss how we might employ it in meditation to keep friends at home and intruders out.
As confidence grows in our ability to incline towards wholesome states, the Noble Eightfold Path may start to appear like a super highway to unconditional happiness, that is applicable and beneficial to every aspect of our life.
The day will be gentle and include periods of sitting and walking meditation, Dhamma reflections and an opportunity for Q&A.
