“With an untrained mind, we live most days at the mercy of our moods. There is a different approach to our lives. We can wake up to our enlightened qualities: unconditional love and compassion; uninhibited, total ease with ourselves; a clear and sharp mind.” - Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

Ideal for anyone wanting an introduction to meditation, as well as those wanting to refresh their practice. Based on the national bestseller Turning the Mind into an Ally by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, this workshop presents how “peaceful abiding” meditation enables us to cultivate our mind’s inherent stability, strength and clarity. It includes practical instructions for developing a strong meditation practice: good sitting posture, how to relate with the breath as the object of meditation, what to do when thoughts come up, and starting a regular home meditation practice.
